i'd have to argue that it depends on the driver. and, like RSF5 said, BMWs do that too. sensors aren't that
big of a deal. from what i understand, mazda is a pretty reliable car.

i hear minis are way fun to drive. like most BMWs, they feel more powerful than they look on paper. and yes, they are a BMW product (+1).
FWD isn't as bad as people say. i drive my dad's 96 volvo 850 R-type (FWD) a lot and it is quite fun (i also enjoy the "turbo" guage on the dash - when i'm acclerating, don't think i'm watching the road
besides, AWD owns it all.
