Grew up a University of Cincinnati fan (still root for their basketball team when not playing OSU). Attended The Ohio State University from 2006 to 2010 for a BSME. Rooting for Buckeye Football ever since.

Chain drives in general are better. My hunch is maybe oil getting to the belt driven ones perhaps? The slippage can't be good for it. Agreed on the awd on tires. That sucks. Speaking of tires, I blew one out a month ago on the 6 ( literally popped) from a half inch bolt with a nut breaking through. Had to replace 2 tires due to wear. Dear LORD were those expensive. subarus alsp have some interesting engine issues occasionally. Friend of mine had his sti engine go bad after 5k. It's working like a peach after the fix though.

I'm kind of jealous of the 3. Though on the 2015 6, they styled the dash to look more like the 3. I still like my embedded screen instead of the one sticking out, but the HUD on the 3 is nifty.

Glad to hear you're enjoying your 6.  I've got the mid-level Touring model.  Honestly, I flipped for it mostly for the 19" rims.  The dual zone climate control is also nice since my wife tends to like the A/C cranked whereas I don't. 

With regard to your comments on CVT's, I completely agree.  The whole Nissan lineup was a big turn-off with that transmission.  I just enjoy the feeling of the gear change over the CVT.  And as you said, the semi-shifty-ness of the Subaru version didn't really fix it.

Mazda 6. Fits car seats in back without crunching the driver. Decent price. Fuel economy will be close to 38 or better if you do mostly highway (don't drive >80mph or you kill that, obviously). Cargo space in the trunk is solid. And it's rated real high in initial quality. I've had mine over a year now and love it.

We cannot be stopped, Hove.  So do the MODs split-up the comments for something like this?  Linga handling the top third...Calpoppy the middle third, and you the bottom third?
