2006 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I traded in my 2004 Honda civic EX for this car. Although the payments were a little higher because of the APR, it was worth the increase. My insurance went down about $50/month and that balanced out the costs. This car is the best! I love it so much. Much better power/acceleration, air conditioning, braking, stereo ... EVERYTHING! Gas is a little more expensive, but so what? Car is worth every penny and more. Don't buy in a dark color unless you do not tailgate, front end paint chips easily. Otherwise I love my car! Can't wait for summer to cruise around more often. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!
Stereo! Power, moonroof, trunk, headlights, tail lights, 4-doors (I hated having a coupe). seats with blue inserts to match the exterior, gauges, steering wheel mounted stereo controls. Roominess, large glove box, cup holders (lol I know). Man, i love my Mazda, zoom zoom baby!
