2005 Mazda Mazda3 SP23 Special Edition 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought the Mazda3 s 2.3 in April of '05. Got into a head on collision, and walked away without a scratch. Since my new baby was totaled, I went out and bought a new one, except I bought the Special Edition (SP23). I loved the BOSE system, the Leather and the Heated Seates. Also has 17" Alloys instead of the 16" on the other one. I can't be more happy with this car. It truly is the best car in its class for the value. Holds a corner like it is on rails!
Stereo controls on steering wheel, BOSE system, heated seats, security/safety package, 4 year 48k warranty.
There is no trunk release on the keyless entry!! That is a PAIN! Other than that, a PERFECT purchase.
