Okay...three years ago I had the choice of getting a 2005 PT Cruiser GT or a 2004 Mazda 3 Hatchback. Dummy here chose the PT. Traded it 2 years ago for a Corolla (bad move....too slow...eh), got a PT Cruiser again...same make, model, and color even. After ANOTHER year of VERY BAD gas mileage (17-18 mpg WITH premium gas) I finally got my Mazda 3. All be it 3 years later, I finally got my Mazda3. SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT ONE IN THE FIRST PLACE......dummy, dummy, dummy.

ANYWAY......Got a used 2004 Mazda3 Hatchback. Pick it up tomorrow (Saturday). LOVE the way this thing handles and got everything I wanted with the trade and financing. Even told them I wanted my brand new tires on the front of the PT put on the Mazda (nice thing about having the exact same size)...and they are doing it.

These are the dealer pictures, but I'll have some better ones tomorrow.

Very nice choice! The 3 will make you much happier than those other two cars. And you chose the best color, too ;)

Welcome to the forums, lots of good people and advice here :)

Nice! Looks exactly like mine did when new :)

What's the significance of the plate? Do you drink a lot of Mountain Dew? :lol:

USED to. I joined the forum 3 years ago and for some reason used my name instead. Been trying to get it changed to "DewDad". Who do I talk to about it.

But, yes, I have this "thing" (or at least used to) for Mountain Dew. Hence "Dew Dad 2"....2 kids.

Generally changing SN's is frowned upon, however the admins sometimes make exceptions. If they do it's a one time thing. I dropped them a line so I imagine one of them will get in touch with you.
