2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I have 34k miles on the car and have not had one problem yet. The car continues to have the same acceleration as the day I bought it (2.3L). The comfort is amazing for a large adult who is 6'4'' tall. I have family members who are taller and enjoy driving it. The suspension is sporty and responsive. I drive on the highway most of the time and get 32-34 mpg. The look of the car is amazing!!
The sporty suspension and acceleration. The trunk has shocks that hold it open, giving tons more space. Love the stereo controls on the steering wheel.
An iPod hookup, which is now available on the newer models. The stock sport tires wear out quick at about 25k, but those can be easily replaced.
