2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is one sweet car. Well priced. Grand touring package comes with heated seats, xenon lights, sunroof, leather, etc.; basically everything. The transmission in the '06 was bumped up to 5 speed. Fit and finish are almost perfect. Styling in and out matches the great performance of the car. The 168hp engine is just fast enough to be fun but not unsafe. It is quick off the line and the smooth shifting make it both a pleasure and fun to drive.
High performance wheels, xenon lights, awesome stereo system (upgraded Bose), styling, non-premium fuel.
Change orientation of speedometer to 60 mph is at 12 o'clock and not 9 o'clock. add remote trunk opening. add power seats to package.
