The ATF in our Mazda 3 is nice and red and behaves normally at almost 60k miles on the fill, but that's why I installed a synthetic ATF and the tranny has a solid track record. It will be exchanged via the cooler line this spring with the same ATF a

General and Off Topic
Hmm... apparently to the contrary, 0 in Orange County, 1 license for each of the 3 areas (only 3 recommended, not the 4 that could have been). #1 recommendation announced was in Thompson in Sullivan County... next 2 haven't been announced yet.
Oil Additives
i would use high mileage oil from now on, maybe try an additive like motor honey, and change the oil more often like every 3,000 miles, and check your oil at least weekly,always keep top off oil with you

Your regular liquid Turtle Wax is the final step. It protects your paint. You can deal with swirls by either removing or hiding them using a filler. I recommend filling for cars that spend a lot of time outside. To remove you can use Meguiar's Ul

If OEM tires are not "garbage" how come the noise levels on many are so loud? I don't care if you drive a new Econo box or a $60,000 pickup- most would like quiet tires. The Goodyear LS on my Silverado were loud and garbage as were the Brid
