2006 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Went to dealership to buy a Mazda Tribute as I wanted sport utility functionality. I drove the Tribute and then saw the Mazda 3; took a test drive and bought the car based on its comfort, looks and the ride is superb compared to the Tribute. Fun to drive and it has great gadgets: radio, driver information center, etc.
The heated leather seats are great. It rides like a large car, quiet and smooth. It's easy to drive and has plenty of power for a four cylinder. The Bose radio, auto engine start and monochromatic mirror are great options. Love the dash light colors and steering wheel radio controls.
