New to Mazda3Forums!

Hi All! I am new to Mazda3forums. I used to own a 2008 mazda 3 hatchback isport 2.5L Galaxy Gray Manual Transmission traded that in for a 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback itouring 2.0L Titanium Automatic Transmission. I kind of have some regrets. Seems like the 2016 since day one has not been solid for me. The drivers side mirror back panel fell off on the interstate. Mazda had to replace that. The heat has caused the weather stripping to stick to the door frame which in turn has torn the weather stripping on the door, I had the back brakes wear completely and the fronts were fine. The back shocks are leaking now so I am going to have to replace those. Car is only 2 years old seems crazy I had my 2008 for a long time and it just seems like I did not have as many problems. The only driving I do is interstate driving to and from work and the occasional out of state trip. I am struggling still going from manual trans to auto haha. I don't feel like the car is as fun with auto. I tried shifting with the manual electronic, but the delay from when I push it to shift is annoying and nothing like the real thing. Anyhow that's my story I am going to push through it and try to make the best of what I have at this point. I am going to go to Mazda and get the new USB hub equipment and update the firmware to get car play in my car will probably be my first line of business. Anyhow looking forward to talking with you guys more in the forums and seeing what you guys have!
