2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Great little car now with 138K on it. Nice features including the Bose sound, LED lights, adjustable headlights, great styling, etc.
Dashboard Navigation, heated seats, 6-disc in-dash changer, sunroof, looks. The 2011 Mazda3 looks ridiculous, like it's smiling or something. 2006-07 had the best look.
The cambered wheels are a real problem. Mazda dealership told me there's no way to correct the excessive wear/ coupling on the tires (going on 5th set of tires). They say it's part of Mazda's "Zoom-Zoom" factor. I do not abuse the tires (have other cars for that). Also the rain-sensing wipers are a real pain. There needs to be a manual adjustment as well because they do not wipe when needed (fog, mist, etc.).
