2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
The Mazda3 is the best built compact available. The interior quality is amazing for this price range. I can get 34MPG on the highway and the motor is not broken-in yet! The exhaust sounds and looks great. I have no styling complaints with this car. Minor issues include that the economy display does not alway coincide with the calculated MPG and the glove box door rattles.
(1) Gauge pod and radio illumination. (2) Xenon head lights. (3) Auto on head lights and wipers.
(1) If the 2.0L in the Miata is rated for 170HP, tune the 2.3L for more than 160HP! (2) Would like a factory option for a clear-front-bumper stone guard product.
