Another Great Mazda
By Barney on
2006 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I've had a bushel of mazda's over the years and this is the best hatchback yet. So much fun to drive. Never been to the shop for more than tires. Plenty of power, better than 30 mpg average, a ton of room, wicked reliable.
Handling, power to weight ratio, gas mileage.
Larger rear view mirror. Narrower center console, right leg hits it and I'm only 5'9". Stiffer shocks. Premium stereo is awful, door panels resonate, lousy sound with Bose system.
