I still walk backwards to look at my car in parking lots. This is by far the most fun to drive car Ive owned in ten years. Bang for the buck is an understatement when it comes to the Mazda3. Nothing can touch it!
The telescoping steering wheel slope of the hood, tail and head lights are all favorites. Ohh! And the cool blue glow off the dash and gages.
Anything I could suggest has already been implemented in the 2006 model. I will be trading up especially if the rumored Mazda3speed is out summer 2006.
