This is just a terrific car. Reliability has been very good except for shocks and battery been replaced at 24k (Puerto Rico roads are awful), otherwise excellent. Power is impressive for a 4 cyl engine, and ride comfort is acceptable despite having 17's on 50 series tires. Handling is awesome, it just sticks like glue. In the end, the best compact you can buy today
Power, terrific stereo for price, handling, looks, dash and gauges, reliability, build quality, braking. Everything.
ABS should be standard, if mazda 6 4-cyl has dual exhausts, why not the mazda3? Paddle shifters, fuel economy is really low for a 4 cyl engine
