2006 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I needed a small hatchback, and of the ones I compared, liked this one the best (and the price was right). But after driving it a bit, we both were troubled by the blind spots; The window dividers make it difficult to see whats next to you or coming up. We've not had that problem with other cars. We are getting used to it, but its something for others to consider when purchasing this car.
Controls on steering wheel, handles very well on street, highway, and mountain roads.
