(sorry for the cell phone pics, although they arent terrible. HD2 running Android 2.3)

I bought myself a 2004 Mazda 3s for a daily driver about a month ago, and I love it.


I bought it second hand, it had 80k miles on it. Got it for $4.7k usd. steal. But, a week after i owned it, luckily I was in my neighborhood when it happened, my passenger lower control arm plum fell off !! Whoever worked on this car must have been a real nincompoop. Bought replacements for both sides for good measure, because the passenger arm bushings were completely shot.


After that was replaced, it was making a vibrating/knocking noise coming from the front passenger fender well. Turns out, it was just a motor mount. $75 fix. Now after all the regular maintinence has been cought up, it is good as new.
