That choice is a no-brainer to me.....MAZDA!!!!! I've owned a Toyota Corrola, a Honda Civic, in the past.....and I test drove the brand new ones before making my choice. Hands-down Mazda. Once I got in the Mazda and test drove it I couldn't let her go!!!!! Still feel the same way after a year of owning her!!!! Zoomer's her name. Good luck on your choice!
