2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I fell in love at first sight. Committed after one test drive. I was waiting for VW to roll out 4-door GTI (heard rumors/got kids/they sell' em in Europe). Couldn't wait. My 100 mile a day commute across L.A. killed my old car. This is the first full week of commuting in the car and I love it. The ride is solid, the car corners nice and flat, and the gas mileage is pretty good. The car is so fun to drive, I'm leaving for work at 5 am so I can take her up to speeds faster that 10mph. My wife even likes the car (hated the GTI). I would recommend to any one looking for value and fun.
Favorite Features
Love the interior, fit and finish, the wheels and tires, the steering wheel controls, and the general look; kinda low and bad. Mine is "Mica-Black."
Suggested Improvements
Better stereo. Stocker is a little tinny, and there's no mid-range. No MP3 inputs (back to carrying a briefcase full of CDs). Exhaust could growl some. Nasty sounding exhaust would enhance gnarly looks.
