    Got into an accident, person in front of me rear ended someone, speed limit was 70 and I was about 2-3 car lengths away, didn't have enough time to stop and I ran into the back of them

    Airbags were amazing, I didn't feel anything upon impact and I think I hit at ~30-40 mph

    Glad you are ok. Sucks about the car and since the airbags did deploy, I would bet the insurance company is going to total it. Sad day.:(

    Dammit, I'll probably end up getting a civic hatchback sport manual, it's supposedly really nice but I'll have to reinstall my subwoofer, and the audio system in the sport is likely a downgrade from the 9th gen SI

    i'm glad everyone is ok but damn does it suck to go out like this.

    Sorry to see the car like that. Glad everyone was ok. Based on the pic, I'd wager it'll probably be totaled. That's quite a bit of damage to the front, plus the cost of airbags. Keep us posted

    Insurance may fix it. Similar situation happened to me.(car in front smacked the person in front, brake lights never went off and I wasn’t paying enough attention and couldn’t react fast enough) damage look similar to mine and it was fixed.

    Glad you are okay but if that was my car... I'd rather it be totaled.

    I am in a conundrum

    I found a 2017 mazda 3 grand touring hatchback with a 6 speed for an excellent price and tons of awesome features

    But I also found a blue 9th gen fb6 and I get too many fuzzy feelings looking at it

    What do? =(

    Have they told you they're going/not going to repair it?

    Not finding out until tomorrow but it's starting to look likely that it's going to be totaled, I can't even move the shifter in the car which isn't a good sign

    I'd see what they're doing to offer you as a payoff (if it's totaled) and then weigh your options. Test drive some stuff and compare what's out there.

    Tried to take a look at the 10th gens today, but the dealer says they won't be ready to drive for 3-5 more days, they do seem really nice though interior wise, exterior just looks awful compared to the fb6 though...

    Update: Drove a tenth gen SI today and I hated it, don't know how but the turbo lag and the rev hang combined with the pathetically light clutch turned me off completely from the car. That and I didn't feel that warm fuzzy feeling when I look at it that I got from looking at my 9th and the Mazda 3. It handles nice but the small bump in power isn't worth trading in a naturally aspirated engine.

    Going to check out the Mazda 3 2.5 manual hatch tomorrow, if I don't like that I'm sliding back into the comfy womb of an orange fb6 in my area.

    I wasn't too impressed with the 10th Si either. I did like the interior better but that is about it.

    I drove the 10th si too. I mean my clutch is light even with the cdv delete but that one was ridiculous. Doesn't look to great either. I would rather a gti or something and that kills me to say. Lol.

    Weird how everyone seems on the same page about the 10th gen lol

    If it had 250 hp the turbo lag would be worth it but at 205 the bump in torque is worthless when you realize you have to wait for the turbo to spool up for it.

    I also noticed that by the time I was reving and having fun I hit the limiter and fuel cutoff which was such a buzzkill.

    Who knows how I'll feel about the 2.5L skyactiv, 185lb-ft at 3100 rpm is beefy, even if it is 20 hp short of my 9th gen.

    I'm sure a vit time will take care of all of that.

    Good news is I found a black fb6 on Craigslist in my area, same year as my old one lol, so if I don't like the Mazda I can just slide right back in where I left off.
