I guess I'm just feeling lonely with this whole experience : P Any other Sask folks on here? Personally, the main reason I signed up for this car is that I'm expecting that it is going to be a riot in the winter and 95% of the forum doesn't understand why I would care about that.

Does it have anything to do with the car being all wheel drive, and a manual??😉

Exactly. If I lived in Cali and I wanted a "fun, drifty car" you could easily get away with a Miata or an 86. Both cheaper and likely better driver's cars. But those light, extra tail happy, low slung, RWD cars are miserable to live with on ice and in deep snow. (Ask me how I know : P) Likewise, the Elantra N and Civic R are faster on the Nurburgring. Sure... but you're not going to throw it around on a snowy back road and expect to not understeer into a tree immediately. Nearly every paved road in this province is poker straight. If you want to have fun you're almost certainly on gravel and if it's winter, its probably not plowed. AWD is the answer.

Side note: it's a shame about the new Mazda 3. I've been Mazda fanboy for a while and when I heard there was a turbo AWD hatchback inbound I was stoked. But... it's ugly (imo) and it's "luxe" and it's auto only in the AWD trims... In short, it's decidedly NOT an all season Miata.
