I’m nervous with new people working on my car, but oh well. The dealer I bought the car from was a Mazda/Kia/Volvo operation, but they sold off their Mazda and Volvo franchises and now they only sell and service Kias.

So, us Mazda (and Volvo) owners got shuffled over to this new place. They’re still getting off the ground. The building and showroom is straight out of the ‘80s with wood paneling but they’re supposedly remodeling. We’ll see. I miss my old dealer. I liked having the car serviced where I actually bought it. They had all records with it and knew me and my car-OCD.

Also, there are two RX-8s up on lifts in the service bay. Who’s surprised?
