  1. Maybe the cee’d can do it. Unfortunately, in stock form the Forte doesn’t hold a candle to the Mazda3. Except in terms of design and price. The Mazda3 is extremely fugly and over-priced.

  2. Stop showing these great small wagons with the diesel engine if you don’t intend to bring them Stateside. Would you give your dog bone and then take it back before he even had it in mouth?????? Give the cee’d 4!!!!!!!!
