Just bought Mazda3 S hatchback! Smooth ride, punchy engine, (who needs a 6 cylinder), saved a lot of money. Soft leather. Handles very well. Quiet engine. I love driving my car, and being able to get all friends in. So far, so good!
There's like 6 cup holders, controls on steering wheel, very roomy (for a small hatchback), great visibility.
Front grill (made of plastic), I cracked it hitting some snow. I don't like all the plastic, not durable enough. I love the car so I can live with it.
