Heart of a Sports Car - Sleek Looks
By HorsySce on

Vehicle

2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have 25,000 miles on my winning blue hatchback and am very satisified with my purchase. It accelerates fast and handles like a Porsche. It looks great on the road (especially with tint). It could use slightly better gas mileage, but it's not too bad. One complaint is the tires - the Goodyear Eagle RSAs it comes with from the factory are pretty great in the summer but useless in the winter. The hard rubber freezes up and is dangerous with even an inch of snow on the ground. I frequently got stuck in the snow. After purchasing Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires for the winter, I'm very satisfied. I recommend doing the same.

Favorite Features

Road handling, power everything, steering wheel controls.

Suggested Improvements

Factory tires are dangerous in the winter. I'd like a plug for my mp3 player (2007 models now come with this).
