Is that a Vibe or a Matrix??

I've had my 3 for about 6 months now and I can't tell you how many times some has told me a I have a nice Vibe or Matrix.
Are people blind? I guess the Mazda 3 spelled out is enough and the Mazda symbol in the grill and the hatch aren't big enough.

Re: Is that a Vibe or a Matrix??

yeah people have posted about this already, you are not the only that gets it. next time someone asks you tell them its a pinto and walk away. well tell them pinto while you hug them and pat the butt, that works a lil better even tho is can get you some jail time or a punch/slap in the face.


worth it if you ask me!

Who said I was on anyone's side?? I'm just stating the facts! I never said my landlord was smart... just that he thought it was a Corolla when I first got it.

Re: Is that a Vibe or a Matrix??

Honestly, I can see why the average non-car person would get confused. If I just catch a glimpse, I think "ooh, was that a 3?". Then I look again and go "Nah, just some crappy Vibe/Matrix."
