MX-5 to C180 to CX-3

Post by angels1five » Mon Apr 06, 2020 2:43 pm

Hello everyone

I have owned my CX-3 for two weeks. Unfortunately, I collected it on the day the lockdown started. :(

Back in 2014 I bought an MX-5. I'd had a rotten couple of years so bought it to put a smile on my face and it certainly did that but I found it a bit too small to do long trips in and my husband is 6' so he had to fold himself up to get into the car. So, I traded it in for a Mercedes C180 coupe. Lovely car but ruinously expensive for parts, servicing and just about everything else. Plus, whenever we need to have more than just the two of us in the car (not often but sometimes) it was fairly difficult to get people into the back seats as there are only three doors.
When I decided (after spending nearly £1000 on fixing a fault and a puncture) to trade it in, I remembered how much I had loved my MX-5 and decided to have a look at some Mazdas.

I really like my CX-3 and I am looking forward to taking it for a drive one day soon!

It's a bit quiet on the forum at the mo - not much driving but lots of cleaning & polishing.

Welcome here, as Housespider says "It's Oh So Quiet"! But I'm sure it'll pick up once this awful virus has passed!

Hi and welcome to the forums. If you enjoyed the MX-5 then you will also enjoy the CX-3 when you get the chance to drive it.
