2005 Mazda 3 s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I've had this car for almost 5 years. During that time I've taken it to the dealers to get fixed twice. One time was so they would tighten the wiper blades and the other was a sensor that was throwing faults. They were both before warranty expired and I haven't had a problem since. I drive 40 miles to work everyday and it does it very well. I've used synthetic fuel since 20K every 7 thousand miles. That may have contributed to the reliability but I doubt it. Mine's a manual transmission too.
-Fuel Mileage - I'm getting an average of 30-34 miles per gallon. Heat and road type dependent. -Steering wheel radio controls -It looks good...still.
Road noise is more than I'd like Stock tires werent that good -Eagle RSA's I need more room next to my right leg. I'm a bigger guy and need just a little more leg room. -
