Pretty much this. It's a bit laughable that someone would try to use that a criticism against a particular brand when it applies universally. As for all of these '12-13 Imprezas being traded in or sold, not seeing anything beyond the usual here. In fact, it looks like there are more used '12-13 Mazda 3s and 6s than Imprezas locally on Autotrader. Sounds like more sour grapes from the OP. OP, hopefully the Mazda provides you the driving experience and enjoyment that you seek. But with 3 new cars in as many years, could be that you're a little too fickle. Be interesting to hear what you thoughts are about the Mazda after you had some time to get to know it a little better.
