2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Owned for almost 3 years/33,000 miles without a single problem. Fun to drive/handles great. Love the 5 speed manual transmission. I'm tall (6-04, 210lbs and I find the front seats to be uncomfortable on long drives. My 5-04 wife and daughters love the seats. If I drive it easy on the hwy we get at best 30 mpg. I think a car of this size should do better although it does have the 2.3 engine.
Reliability/styling/handling. Great manual transmission/clutch - very easy and smooth to drive.
Should get better mileage for a car this size. More comfortable front seats for tall people.
