    cheap

    adjective
    1.
    (of an item for sale) low in price; worth more than its cost.
    "they bought some cheap fruit"
    synonyms: inexpensive, low-priced, low-cost, economical, competitive, affordable, reasonable, reasonably priced, budget, economy, bargain, downmarket, cut-rate, reduced, discounted, discount, rock-bottom, giveaway, bargain-basement, low-end, dirt cheap
    "cheap tickets"
    adverb
    1.
    at or for a low price.
    "a house that was going cheap"
    Yeah context is everything. "The house is going for cheap" vs "the house was built cheaply" lol.

Android auto works fine. sometimes it seems to have a lag issue with just regular FM radio though like a legit lag. People are allowed to dislike things. Just because the sound system is fine to you doesn't mean it is to me.
    Never said you aren't allowed to not like something, relax man, quit being so defensive just because some of us want to engage and discuss... but at the same time I'm in high-tech, and an AV nerd/videophile and am picky and think it's absolutely decent for the price... For sound quality try just putting the mid down 2 notches from the middle. Also, very easy to turn off the DSP using ForScan and you can upgrade to speakers for only like $70 a pair that will sound much better. And did you update yours to the latest version? Never seen any lag at all with FM radio using AA, just very minor quirks here and there... If you need a non-nav update I created a an installer package and can hook you up... As far as the height handle for the seat I can tell it's pretty cheap but it also doesn't go very low at all so no need to even mess with it, I'm very average height myself and I just set it for the lowest and leave it. :)

    Well any car I drive I normally bottom out the seat. The problem is my Wife is very short and she needs to raise it up, and well then the handle breaks off. I have spent a ton of time messing with the EQ settings. I like the car and will keep it till it's dead, or I lose my left foot and can't use a clutch pedal anymore. My wife has a 2011 Mazda 3 2.5 hatchback and if you saw all the things Mazda has done for free to fix little issues here and there it just makes Ford look like a tool. Seat adjuster for one Mazda realized they were fragile so they reinforced it for free. We actually never had an issue with the seat adjuster but still got took care of. This is everything I've gotten for free on that car just handed it to us. Blower motor for leafs, Bose amp valued at $500 on a 7 year old car, seat adjuster bracket, liftgate shocks, upper dashboard replace due to loosening material over time. None of these things had anything to do with warranty coverage Mazda just took car of it, and Bose gave us a free amp when we asked because hers was having issues.I just wish Ford would address the issue with the seat adjuster handle and realize there's a design flaw. Also the average consumer should not have to manually update the sync system it should be able to do that on its own.

    Hehe, I guess I'm glad my wife can't drive manual, she's only 2 inches shorter than me but likes to sit higher so I know she'd break that POS lever, hehe... but damn, Mazda did all that stuff for free? That's impressive! And yeah, so much potential with the stereo, after all the messing around I could do I just realized cutting mids by 2 notches is best I can do until I do speaker upgrade. At least regular 6 3/4" drop right in, Crutchfield includes the brackets for about the same price as Amazon for some decent Rockford Fosgate component for front, 3-way for rear, only $140 total. Maybe at least do the fronts to start, what I'm considering anyway, but then turn off the DSP in ForScan and blow the rears out and replace those later, heh.

    Well with a lot of time and patience I have taught my wife how to drive a manual is she great at it no. My Wife wants a sports bike maybe one day she will get one but I was like you need to learn how to drive a manual. Under warranty Mazda replaced the thermostat housing, and Horn. Out of kindness they replaced the blower motor as it had sucked in a bunch of leaves from the large air intake. The seat adjustment bracket, lift gate shocks, and dashboard were replace under recalls /caring about your brand's image. The amp was replaced for free by Bose I guess they care about their partnership with Mazda I didn't even have to return the old one. They were also very loaner car friendly.

    I thought he hated this car. He told me that "...it rode like a grocery cart!" and advised me to get the FOST! I really wanted the Fiesta ST for what it is and if I wanted a Focus ST I would have gotten one. :O
