Hey everyone,

I just about went green and switched to the dark side of automatic with a new skyactiv mazda 3. Before I signed the papers I decided to go peep at a new si. The rest is history. 2 days later, I found a sedan in stock and rolled off the lot with a new black 2012 si from arguably the coolest sales guy I have ever met. 5 miles on her off the lot! Who here has bought the lowest mileage new si?

Mine was the show room car with only 3 miles. When I took it out for a test drive, I put 4 miles on it before I bought it.

Welcome to the forum!

Mine had 3 kilometers (so just under 2 miles roughly). It was ordered in for me and I had to wait a few weeks for it to be built so no one had a chance to test drive it before I got my hands on it, lol.

Wow so many members of the single digit club! To all of you who didn't start there, don't worry I didn't test drive your si too hard :wink:

Welcome to the newbie club. First non-Nissan of my own. Family has had Honda's and I always liked driving them.

I had 8 miles on mine. Put 30+ fairly hard miles on the CBP sedan I test drove - twice!! Sales guy encouraged the revving and hard driving being an 8th Si owner himself.

My car rolled off the truck at noon, got prepped and I took her home at 6 the same day. Now, 4500 miles after just two months.

To be honest, they arent comparable in the least. I simply had originally planned on a gas friendly compact and non si civic trims werent cracking my list. Si just sort of threw a wrench in the works and won me over.

Still, the skyactiv tech is pretty cool and I believe has a ton of potential. But for all that boasting of 155hp @ 40mpg, it felt sluggish like every other high 30's, lows 40's mpg car. For now the mazda 3 serves as a nice looking compact that puts some more competition in the 40mpg category. It just isnt this combination of power and fuel economy Mazda would have you believe.
