How reliable are Mazdspeed 3s? They seem disgustingly cheap for something with an LSD, turbo, and useable hatch

I have a Gen 2 and it's been perfectly reliable, but it's stock and I don't beat on it. Be wary of modded ones, or any with over 60K miles as issues with the turbo seals can crop up if they're not taken care of.

Agreed, pretty sure most of the reliability issues come from morons slapping on a monster sticker and turning the boost up to 11. And also flooring it in sixth.

Unfortunately, the two local ones both replied they had offers in hand when I reached out and both sold

The grocery stores around here only have the big gently caress off upright ones that you use to clean an apartment or something. If the depot near me had any it was only like 16 bucks or something for a rental. Just kinda seeing if anyone has had experience with the hand ones I could fit in a two door back seat easily

Petsmart or Petco rents them with hand held cleaners for upholstery

More general vehicle question incoming. To offset my unemployment I started doing food/beer delivery for a local brewery. The company van wasn't starting and we were way behind, so I took an order in my gti. The loving cap blew off a growler of oatmeal stout, emptying the 64oz of beer onto the floor in my backseat. Anyone have recommendations for small, powerful carpet shampooer you can rent? My car smells like rotten soy sauce dumped into a hangover.

Tried doing some research at home depot and whatnot, but most places aren't even doing rentals right now.

See if someone you know has a Bissell Little Green Machine. We have three cats and it works really well getting puke out of the carpets in our house. Compact enough to be used easily on a car.

ACCIDENTAL SHIT POSTER


Thanks for the advice, I finally found one at ace hardware and went to town on it the other day. Took like three hours, but the smell is 90% gone now.

if you have access to an ozone generator that will probably help with any lingering odor
