Blowing me own trumpet again - parp - my look at Mazda's excellent new 3 topped the analysis eyeball-attracting chart at just-auto this week. I have always held Mazda products in high regard (even owned one in a previous life) and this new 'un reinforced the belief while the pioneering compression ignition petrol engine - albeit with a little spark plug assistance therein - is still to come. Sadly, bad news also draws eyeballs and Ford's 7,000 white collar jobs axe topped the news chart. Read through the details and the reasons make sense but it's still hard for those affected.
