WASHINGTON, DC. - Tricia bought the car that we recommend to almost everyone: the Mazda3 hatchback. It turns out the little Mazda wasn’t as exciting as she expected and now she is looking for something with a bit more performance. What car should she buy?

(Welcome back to What Car Should You Buy? Where we give real people real advice about buying cars. Do you want us to help you find a car? Submit your story on our form.)

Here is the scenario:

I am currently driving a 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback and it’s just... boring. It’s an automatic, which might have been my big mistake in the purchase. My previous car was a manual red 2005 Audi TT. I miss it so much but it isn’t really practical for my life - which is the reason why I sold it. I miss driving a stick shift and having something zippy I can take out on the back roads on the weekend. I have a large dog (70 lbs) who needs to fit in the backseat as well.

I am planning to sell the Mazda, but would consider keeping it if I found something well under budget that fit the bill as a weekend car - in which case a lot of my other requirements are flexible - in that case I would love a convertible!
