2006 Mazda 3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've put about 4600 miles on this car, and I love it. All my complaints so far are pretty trivial - a little too much engine noise, the interior clock isn't that accurate . . . nothing to keep you from buying the car. Before buying, I read reviews that mentioned excessive brake noise - I test drove a couple of 3's, and the brake noise only occurred in the automatic. I was really unimpressed with the automatic - it felt sluggish compared to the manual. I get good mileage - average 23-27 MPG driving in traffic in Northern Virginia, and I don't drive it gently. I averaged over 31 for the tank during a weekend trip spent doing a lot of driving on country highways.

Best Features

Style and performance, one-touch open window and sunroof.

Worst Features

The fog lights are strictly for style. It would be nice if they actually helped you see the road.
