  • Mazda 3 2008: Is it a good buy for $10,000?

    A 2008 Mazda 3 Neo would be a good choice, but I would be trying to get it for $8500-$9000, $10,000 is too much unless it is a very low mileage example. Others to consider would be the Honda Civic VTi, which would be my preference, and the Hyundai Elantra.

  • Honda Civic 100,000km service

    I doubt that it's related to the automatic gearbox, the engine is running roughly and is sluggish when cold. That points to a problem with the cold enrichment of the engine, and I would be getting it hooked up to a diagnostic analyser and checking things like the sensors that supply information to the car's computer.

    The GPS. The results really confirm what we know, that speedos read optimistically, that is they show a higher speed than actual. Your GPS is always lower than the speedo, suggesting that its closer to the real speed.
