2006 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought this M3 to have some fun and save on gas in daily city driving. For the fun part, it's delivered above and beyond expectations. Handling, braking, road attitude, looks are great, surprisingly quick for a 2L AT, nice and roomy interior. Sadly, I must have gotten the thirsty one on the lot, hardly gets 25 mpg in the summer and 22- 23 in the winter. Suspension is perfect for zipping around town, but highway rides longer than 1 hr get a bit uncomfortable. Overall outstanding value.

Favorite Features

Head turning looks, pick up, live steering wheel, seat hight and lumbar support adjustments, telescopic wheel, transmission gear display on dashboard.

Suggested Improvements

Rear view mirror is too low and obstructs view, no power trunk release, needs more windshield wipper delay settings, front light short beam is too short, A/C takes long time to cool in hot days, annoying beep and lights when turning radio up/down.
