That is funny you say that. The Mazda 3 was the top contender in that video I just posted regarding buying the Corolla. When I am in the market for a new car, I am going to be consulting you too.

If you have AAA, I think they have a vehicle inspection service if you want a mechanic to go and look at the car. Not sure if they have any other services for buying used.
