Mazda wants to "Americanize" their NA cars
Bastards!!!! We should be blaming american culture though to a point. Slowly the manual transmission has begun to fade in the U.S. With this, we, the enthusiasts have to take the punches as they come. The automotive market has been forcing changes like this due to such creations as the SUV and mini van.
I could write volumes about this and why it Sucks!!!!!
The STi, EVO, Mazdaspeed Miata and other new gems make us keep the faith!!!!!!
What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money.
