2006 Mazda 3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Have owned this car almost 3 yrs. No mechanical/quality problems. Routine service only. Handles similar to my drowned BMW 325i, despite that it is FWD (specs for size wt and interior dimensions close, but definitely not nearly as refined as BMW, but ok for ~1/2 the price. Excellent outward visibility. Mileage ~22 mpg city and high 20's hwy. Good looking, especially to the younger set. Lots of amenities, leather, rain-sensing wipers, 5 speed auto with manual mode, atuo on-off headlights, side air bags, CD, heated seats, and more. Would definitely recomend this model for someone who wants a fun to drive, economical, utilitarian and reliable car that runs on regular gas. It is a GLC as in great little car.

Best Features

Tight steering & turning radius, responsive easy to modulate brakes, comfortable and roomy, especially back seat, ride firm not choppy, more than adequate acceleration, fold-down rear seats, reg gas. One 2,400 mile cross country trip. Flawless.

Worst Features

Remote trunk release and a real horn. Auto windows up and down and auto close sunroof. Driver's window auto down only and sunroof auto open only.
