Did you know Corollas are now available with a 2.0 liter engine AND 6 speed MT? One of the few manufacturers left now making cars with MT. Pretty good reviews and very decent 0-60mph times too! I'm thinking of test driving one just to check it out. Wish at least the 2.0 had been an option in 2015 when we got our S plus.

Money well spent on all of them IMO. I also had a 2012 Mazda3 (2.0L Skyactiv 6-speed) that I loved but that I decided to trade after Bambi rearranged most of the front end. I traded it for a 2016 Mazda6 (2.5L Skyactiv 6-speed) that is at around 40K with no issues. I would have just gotten another 3 but they had just moved production to Mexico and I didn't want to be the guinea pig for a new low budget factory build. My 6 was made in Japan and that's just how I like it. It makes me really sad they stopped making these with manual transmissions. I bought another car so I can make my 6 last as long as I can.
