im thinking about trading my focus zx3, which has no options whats so ever except for crusie control. I looked at a focus zx4 with no power options either just cruise control and it seemed nice. Then i looked at a mazda6 and it had pw windows/locks/(maybe seats too)/mirrors, and it was a v6. disc brakes all around, and i am thinking about trading my car in for that. the reason i want to trade my car in is because i cant stand how man things happen to it anymore. its been egged, hit and run, keyed, scratches on the doors due to someone trying to pry my door open. i know stuff like this can happen to this other car if i get it but i just need a change, plus the focus is giving me some issues lately, and i dont feel like its worth the time to try and make it perfect. so any thoughts you have , good or bad, on the mazda 6 would be nice.
also i forgot to mention that i just had the dents and scratches fixed on my car about 3 weeks ago and just this morning i noticed a huge scratch on my right fender. so yea, this car is stressing me out.

If you're stressed out now, just think how much more stressed you will be when that kind of shit happens to a Mazda6. Sounds like you need a new neighborhood to go along with whatever car you drive. Sorry if that sounds harsh. You do have my sympathy...it stresses me just hearing about peoples rides getting vandalized/abused by low-lifes.

the thing is i live in a real nice neighborhood, not to sound mean but its not your average neighborhood. its just that jackasses think its funny to come to a nice neighborhood and mess with people property, a while back we had all the cars on our street egged, my neighbor got her 06 ram all messed up and her mom got her expedition egged too. either way i think its time for a change, unless i find a focus with power option and a sunroof i think i might get the mazda6.

My buddy has a really nice Volvo S40 T5, and his neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired.
Anyway, he and his wife have a 120 LB German Shepard that stands as tall as a fourteen year old boy. Nice dog, but VERY intimidating and he really doesn't like unexpected visitors that he doesn't know. His name is Jackson.
Jackson, is nocturnal. meaning, he's more comfortable being up all night and napping during the day.
So, my buddy made a doggy door of sorts in the gate of the kennel beside the house. Jackson is on a chain, but can reach all the edges of the yard. The Volvo is parked in the driveway in front of the kennel.
Lets just say that his car is the ONLY car on that block that has not been broken into in the last year.
