Hi guys im new to this forum. i will be buying a car within the next 2
months. and first i had my eyes on the toyota XRS... but after riding a
friends mazda, i was amazed how smooth the ride was and how much power it
Why Corolla? cheaper car, good engine and handling.. i've been driving my moms corolla for 3 years now and i adapted to it.. sounds sissy yes.. but i think im playing safe?
I never drove a Mazda or know much about them can anyone give feedback? I plan to lower my car, change the sparks and clutch for the first few months.. everything else is secondary (turbo)
This will be my first car and insurance will kill so how can i save money on this thing please help ! thanks
"change the sparks and clutch..."? :roll:
Maybe spark plugs and a short throw shifter? lol
BTW for saving money up, I'd suggest, say...I don't know, a savings account? lol
yeah im thinking about small upgrades first.. savings account yes.. haha i work at the bank.. :D but.. income is still tight.. but back to the models.. what would you guys suggest?
First I suggest you explain to us how to replace a clutch. And if you are
changing the spark plugs, why you aren't changing the spark plug wires as
well as they usually go hand in hand. Do you know what a PCV valve is? Fuel
Filter? Transmission Filter, as well as oil? Rear end fluid?
These are just SOME maintenance things that should be done on cars, granted not all at the same time, but the point I'm getting at is do you know at all what you're talking about or are you going off of "The Slow and Stupid"?
Naws is good, always use naws.
That's a large difference in price. I would compare the Camry with the 6,
and the mazda 3 with the corolla. Personally; it depends on how long you
are going to keep the car. If you are going to keep it for a while, the
Toyota would be more reliable long term, but the Mazda is so much more
powerful and looks so much better. But if i were you, i would choose
neither, and wait for the Honda Civic SI Sedan, outhandles all of its
competition, its power is decent, not mazda 6 level (normally, you don't
compare these two, but you mentioned the 6) but still pretty good,
bulletproof reliability, and it looks so much better then the corolla.
But if i had to choose between the corolla and 6, i would go for the 6, but for less money you can get a Civic SI Sedan which is the best bang for buck, at least i think so.
Ditto except I would choose the Toyota. The 6 is in the Camry/ Accord section, so power is going to be more because the car is bigger. The Mazda competitor in the Corolla's segment is the 3. The Corolla doesnt look very nice though, but its reliability is much better than a Mazda's. If you want performance I would get the Civic SI Sedan or perhaps consider a Impreza WRX. :thumbs: :2cents:
