    That's what my 2012 has.

      Too bad I missed Sky Active by a year or so...

      I still like Hondas, but the Mazda 3 is much more fun. And learning stick was also fun--and horrifying!

      ;)

        But I love my 2.5l engine! I learned stick as an adult, too. [On my previous car, a hand-me-down Cavalier that I had for a few years between Mazdas.] Wouldn't trade it for anything now, especially in winter driving...unless I move back into the bumper-to-bumper traffic (or steep mountain driving) I grew up in.

        Zoom-zoom back atcha. ;-)

          to drive a manual at your age? That must be great for your brain!"

          Don't know if that is true, but teaching an oldish dog new tricks can't be bad. ;)

            My dad taught me...for the second time! It took awhile. It took a LONG time for it to become second nature. Now what's hard is when I rent a car--they're all automatic, and every once and awhile I'll hit the brake as if it's the clutch. Yikes!
