Lets face it, if your budget is 17000
and you want a new fun, reliable car
there's not much to choose from. Thank
God for the Mazda3. So much power for
the money. If you want a $17000 car why
would you want any more or less than
160horses. It's perfect. Great
acceleration and decent fuel economy.
Interior is great. Winning Blue
metallic gets everyone staring, fun to
drive stick, great handling and so
smooth and quiet for a compact,
build quality inside and out is far
beyond standard-- IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN
Audio mounted steering wheel controls,
gauges, interior lighting, great firm
but comfy seats, soft leather trimming
on steering whell and shift knob,
chrome shift knob ultra smooth gear
box, medium length throw- classy wheels
for stock rims!
looks awesome, everything feels high
quality and works great, engine is so
smooth and fast- i dont see what needs
to be changed how many Compacts come
with vented disc brakes!!??
