2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Amazing performance and content for the price, proof that economy transport doesn't have to mean boring and cheap. Great brakes (standar ABS) with precise steering and well tuned underpinnings make this a serious drivers car. Visually STUNNING! Cool mica paint, big 17" alloys with 50 series rubber, aggressive aero styling, and the nifty rear hatch make the 3 a real attention getter. Inside, Love the wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, light clutch and a shifter that glides through gears like a knife through butter. Opt for the 5 speed (the sport stick auto moves up to shift down}. Good goin' Mazda, now how about a little better seats, AWD and another 50 or so horses? A budget Beemer?
Favorite Features
Handling, fun to drive and reasonable economy. Jazzy looks and styling.
Suggested Improvements
Better seats, AWD, 6 speed and more HP and torque. A few controls are sorta goofy, (audio system)? And who thought up moving the sport shift forward to shift up and back to shift down? Weird! (I went for the slick and more logical 5 speed for that reason). But, I'm nit-picking again.
