2006 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This car has been very, very fun to zip around on both the highway and city. However after only driving it for 6 months my clutch pedal became squeaky (replaced under warranty). Then a month later my brakes became extremely squeaky even though I still had 75% of the pads left. I plan on taking it in again soon.
Shifter and handling.
Don't use such cheap brake pads (regarding noise) and upgrade winter performance of all-season tires.
