2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I'm amazed with the level of equipment that comes with this car, for the price (I got the car at invoice). I have the 5 speed automatic, which includes sport shift. Love the looks, ride, handling, and utility. The car is a lot of fun and the gas mileage pretty good -- about 28.5 after two fill-ups.
Looks, handling, fun to drive. Finally got a car with a moonroof. The steering wheel stereo controls are handy. The color (winning blue) is a looker, turns a lot of heads. The headlights and taillights are cool. The kids love the fact that the rear windows go all the way down.
Seats could be a bit more comfortable, and it would be nice if I could change the climate control and stereo backlight color ... not crazy about the red.
