Mazda wants me join a 2004...

Mazda wants me join a 2004 Mazda 3 focus group. They said they'd they pay $75 bucks cash. I'm sooo for it. I wish they would have done this forever ago. I am actually wondering why they would do one now. Do they want to know if us Mazda 3 owners would like to see a MS Mazda 3. Because I sure as hell do. In any case, has anyone else been approached, or is going. I am going to one in Long Beach on the Jan. 20th.

PEACE!!!!

unless they plan on doing something to your car (or your person), this sounds like a great deal

Maybe people that bought a Focus were asked to be in a Mazda3 group!

Well sorry for being gay and not answering anything, but I'll tell you my experience first and then go through responses.

I wen and they made me answer like a little questionaire involving comments regarding reasons why I purchased my car or would purchase a car. You'd have to agree in different levels. "Strongly Agree" to "Strongly Disagree." Some of the comments that I had to aggree or dissagree were about if I thought that the image of the car had to reflect my image or if it was important for there to prestige for me to want to buy my car.

After I filled out my form, we went into the room and everyone there bought or owned a MZ3. There were five 5-door owners and four sedan owners. Two of the sedan and two hatch owners really liked their car including me. The others liked their car and the fact that it was affordable was more at the top of the list.

I couldn't really tell what this was all about, they mainly wanted to know if they should still sell them and what were the reasons that we will still buy them. I was able to mention the MS MZ3 but they kinda just skipped it. I was hoping that they would mention, free MS MZ3s for all to test!!!! But no.

In any case, I was getting really annoyed because there was this one guy, who was a teacher that just didn't want to give them what they wanted to hear. He kept getting frustrated when the guy minced his words and then shaped them into what he wanted to hear as feed back. I thought it was funny at first but he did it throught the whole session.

So we all just talked about why the car was our choice, what we were thinking about when buying the car, what other cars were being considered, and why we wanted those cars, also what we like about our cars and what we didn't like about our cars. I love the power and handling I get from my car and hate that I have had to take it in to the dealer about 6 times for different things. But they didn't care about that. They just want to make sure that they are able to get enough information so that know whether the car will still sell and what direction they should be going in. (like the all new Mazda 5, which I haven't seen to be mentioned as a miniVan but it sure looks like one, but again, it has a 2.0 liter engine.)

This whole session was kinda gay because it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be so I went and had a cool time at a hooka lounge in UCLA Territory (I forgot where that is), which I love to roll with my USC Gear to, and dance and drank until morning and then went to vegas and drank until I left on the following sunday and forgot to sleep the whole weekend.

PEACE!!!!

That's ok, being gay isn't such a bad thing.


So, how did you get hooked up with the event in the first place?

Oh yeah that. I think, just as they would in any study took a random sample and just called me. I was one of the lucky ones to be offered 75 bucks for my time.

PEACE!!!!
