2005 Mazda 3 i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

55 year old. My last car was a Focus ZX3 5-speed. The quality and attention to detail is incredible. Mine is Rally White with the moon roof, ABS, sport pkg and all the air bags. The car handles much better than the Focus and has the aggressive look of a BMW. Fit and finish is world class and the materials in the interior are light years ahead of any of the products offered by the big 3. I looked at the new Civic and really disliked the new dash layout and that was the only other vehicle that I considered.

Favorite Features

It is the best looking vehicle in its class. Gas mileage is 29 around town and almost 35 on the interstate - unbelievable! Solid steering and wonderful brakes and quiet at cruising speeds.

Suggested Improvements

The trunk needs a remote and my right foot also rubs on the center console down by the accelerator pedal. Red dash lights (on the i) take a bit of getting used to. These are minor nits to pick on an otherwise incredible vehicle.
