Hey guys,

I'm from Autoweek magazine. Autoweek.com We currently have a long term TC and are about to run a intro article for the car. However, we need to have a little info from you, the owners.
So... Could you send an email to [email protected] with the following information:
1. Price you paid before taxes
2. Other vehicles considered
3. Your likes/dislikes about the car

Thanks alot from all of us at Autoweek.

Jon Wong

1. Everybody paid the same base price and different taxes/fees. I got the barebone 5-speed - which is $16500 or so. Taxes differ for everybody, dealer fees differ, too - so I don't see the point in this question.
2. Nothing - I did not need a new car - I just wanted a tC.
3. Best bang for the buck, looks, easy to work on, SC coming

1. 16500 before tax + 125 for mats
2. Mazda 3
3. Likes: Ride comfort, Bang for the buck is amazing, Toyota quality/reliability, interior quality, STANDARD FEATURES are amazing - everything you could need, panoramic sunroof is sweet, performance is great for the money, rear seat versatility makes for awesome cargo room, also rear passenger room is unbeatable.

Dislikes: dealership service department, lack of steering stereo controls, rear trunk is small.

Overall, still love the car.

I was wondering if I was going to be the only one who actually e-mailed him like he asked..
Yes, Marty, you are the only one. Others don't want to give their real email addresses to some unknown dude.

I had no intention of emailing him, but that's just because I'm lazy. I'm not very protective of my email address.

As for the wiper, I've never really thought it was necessary. There was a separate thread about that a few weeks ago. As for the the clutch, I've never had any trouble. What size shoe do you wear?

Mine are 12. I know your problem, it goes away in a couple of weeks when you find the sweet spot.

Mine are 12s as well (depends on the brand of shoe though). I was worried about having trouble with the pedals being too close or running into the transmission tunnel, but I fit very comfortably.
