Its a pretty simple question. Theres a lot of people loyal to only one brand of vehicle. While some tend to buy a lot from one manufacturer. So is this your first or have you owned any others prior to purchasing this?
A Miata. '92 Black&Tan that has been turbocharged twice over and now looking at adding a few more cylinders. It's been in the family for over a decade, was mine once about 7 yrs ago, and has been my project for the last 3yrs.
It sold me on the brand. The "2" was my first new car, heck...my first car over $2000 (I've had two dozen used cars). It has not disappointed me in the least. Sold on Mazdas for life.
Lookin' good in the snow one Monday on the way to campus after a weekend motor swap brought out a weak cam angle sensor that ran fine for shakedown and then failed after 75mi of my usual commute.

I had a 93 MX-3 and a 90 AWD protege with a 1.8L DOHC swap with the JDM GTX transmission. That car was fun to drive but was rotting out bad on me. I've had a few "Fazdas" (Ford badged, Mazda powered) 5 Ford Aspires and 2 Ford Festivas, one of which I still have and is being AWD swapped using Protege parts up front and Miata stuff for the rear end.
This is my second 100% Mazda. My first was a 1985 626. It died (literally) at 240K 10 years later. I also owned a Ford Probe which was a Ford Body (never again ugh) on a 626 frame/engine. Loved the Mazda part of that car.
