It is a great car. This is my first Mazda, I have owned 2 Subaru's prior. For the money I couldn't go wrong. It has all the bells and whistles of most major luxury car makers at a fraction of the price. The design, both interior and exterior are well thought and beautiful. I get people asking me all the time what kind of car is that! It catches people's eyes for sure. After I tinted the window's it took on a totaly different look. I would love to see Mazda put the 6 cyc. in the 3. It would make it even better!! It is quick now, but with the 6 cyc. WOW!
Interior is beautiful (but loves to hold dust). Love the two tone leather, 6 disc changer inside the dash, and lines of the outside. People think it is a BMW. Oh the stock Bose speakers on the SP are worth every nickel.
The interior scuff's easy. The orange panel lights could be nicer. Overall little to improve on.
