2006 Mazda MAZDA3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Purchased our 2006 Mazda3 s - new.
Went with the Touring package to get side curtain/seat airbags and sport tires/ rims.
We have 77k miles now,
While it is good car the quality is low.
Carpet, seats, visor, rear view mirror, visors are all worn or broken. One major thing I hate is the oil filter placement.
Had to replace the drivers window/lock cluster cause that stopped working.
I do all my oil changes but to reach the filter you have to remove the underbody shield consisting of 5 bolts and numerous clips.
This car replaced our 1988 MX6 we kept for 23 years.
I did not have these problems until well after 150k on my MX6.
install a K&N air filter to increase MPG and low end torque.
