Yesterday I received a voucher from Mazda for $35 if I'd simply go test drive a 2006 Miata.
Then, on the way home, my clutch began behaving as if the hydraulics were low, and by the time I got home I couldn't use 1st gear and shifting at all was a chore. Naturally, I got stuck in stop-and-go traffic for several miles. It was not a moment of jinba ittai.
Time to go call the contact who thought he might be able to extend an employee discount
