2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is one of the best small car on the market. The interior is well appointed, the seats are comfortable, and the stereo system is excellent. Close the doors and you hear a tump not a rattle like most small cars. The performance is great, and the handling is on the level of high ends vehicles. I have owned over 20 cars in my life time. I call it my baby BMW. I have owned two Bimmers and I enjoy this car better. I can't say more; I bought it for my wife, but I gave her my Expedition to drive and I take the Mazda. If you buy one you won't be dissatisfied.
Interior, build and the quality of workmanship. The performance make this a fast little car. And the handling make it easy to drive.
I have a few improvement but they are not really a complaint. Tint in the upper windshield. Little more rear legroom, I can't really complain about that, because I will be driving. I had to dig deep for these.
