Super Fun, Practical, Economical car

2004 Mazda 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
After owning a 2004 Mazda 3 for a little over two years, I am still impressed by its exceptional build quality, fun to drive nature, and great fuel economy and practicality. No defects or warranty issues of any kind. The car has survived a deer crash and a trip through a ditch in two different accidents. Body shops did a great job, and the car is still driving great. This is a car you don't get bored with very soon. Had the 30K service done a while back and everything checked out great. The tires tend to wear somewhat quickly, though. Replaced the original set at 27K miles with some Kumho Ecsta ASX all season tires.
