2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I've had this car for only three days now and I am infatuated with it. When I'm not driving it, I am wishing I were. I love doing errands now! It handles so well. The steering is incredibly responsive and the brakes are excellent. It feels like a much more expensive car than it actually is. Mazda did a fantastic job. One complaint - the ride over a bumpy road can be pretty rough. Also, if you turn on the lights during the day, you cannot see the numbers on the dials because of the electroluminescent lights. Other than these tiny things, it's great! I'm cutting this review short so I can go drive.
I like pretty much everything about this car. The high points are the exterior/interior styling, steering responsiveness, spacious interior, adjustable driver's seat, cruise control is very smooth and steady, steering wheel radio controls.
