I dunno. A loud Popping sound is coming from the rear of the car when I hit bumps, turn back and forth at low speeds in 1st, and on heavy acceleration and braking. It's not really a HUGE shock (yukyuk), any new car's gonna have issues out of the box. As long as my issues stay out of the engine bay, I'm good.

Knock on wood

I skipped tonight as I was on weather standby til midnight. I'll be out Saturday since I got the Mazda back Friday.

Stupid bolt worked it's way loose from the rear sway bar.

Not surprising with the condition of the roads here.
