Two years ago, I made an awful mistake.

I was so ready to get rid of my Fusion, I traded it in for a quick lease on a Mazda 3.

Worst. Mistake. Ever.

So happy in my shiny, new car

The car drives like a go-kart and I swear Mario is going to pop up next to me. Not to mention it sounds like the wind is coming through my windows and I have to turn the stereo up to 15 with the windows down to hear any of the words from the music. Plus, the sunroof might as well not exist because it is incredibly noisy.

Yes, I test drove it.

No, I didn't notice any of these things at the time because I was blinded by the shiny new ride.

I'm easily distracted by sparkly things. This is true.

Well, this shiny thing isn't so any more thanks to the snow and ice pile at the end of my driveway.


Front left bumper, slightly popped out

Do I hate driving this car? Yes

Do I hate driving this car even more? Oh yes.

Do I hate that it's going to cost money because I can't back out of my driveway? Oh yes and yes.

Well, at least it's the weekend, right?

Sorry for your bad luck :( The husband and I both have Mazda3's and love them... Maybe you got a lemon???

Wow that sucks. I drove a Maza as a Zipcar and it wasn't for me either. I prefer Honda.

Ugh, I feel your pain. I hate driving. Period.

Oh, this is brutal. I hate my car, too, but in my defense, my mom bought it, & I didn't get a say in the matter. Which actually just makes me sound spoiled. Don't worry, it's a '93 Camry. I call it The Time Machine.

Zoom, zoom.

Like Carly, hubby and I have Mazda 3's and love them. We had a huge ice dam at the bottom of our driveway and my bumper popped out too! Fortunately with the thaw, it's all melted away now, but now I have to take my car in to get fixed.

If it makes you feel better, I'm driving around in a hand-me-down '97 Chrysler Sebring convertible. EV-ERY-THING is going on it. It's a blast to drive around in for, oh.... about three months out of the year. My neighbors all make fun of me because I am constantly stuck in my driveway. I feel your pain, girl. Good luck.

cars suck period. When will someone invent teleporting? Cars confuse and blind you with cute. Its easy to fall for them, and realize that under their shiny exterior they all pretty much suck.

That may have been partially due to my jaded view on men or something in disguise.
