2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
The car is great. The paint is terrible. It chips and scratches too easy (my purse chipped my paint). The interior sucks. The floor mats are cheap, the plastic door panels are poorly made, scratch way too easy and the plastic piece around the gear shift, well the silver paint is coming off of that from the heat. So yes I like this car, it runs great but the quality of the interior and the paint is very poor. Although I do like the car I would not buy it brand new again. Go for the used it's not worth as much as it costs. Depreciation on this car is terrible.
Driving my baby. The car is pretty to look at and drive. They just need to make durability and looks on the same level.
Gas mileage. Paint. Door panels - actually all the plastic inside stinks. It needs to be a little more durable. Better quality carpet. Paper thin carpet doesn't do me any good.
