2007 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I've been very pleased with my 2007 Mazda 3 Sedan. We had a lot of difficulty finding a car with decent MPG that my 6'4" boyfriend could fit in. This car has been a joy to own and over the last 2 years I've only had to replace the battery and do regular maintenance. She has been very reliable and I would change very little about her. I live in Montana and would not suggest this car for winter conditions if you drive much. We manage to get by using our second car for the worst days. Being 2 wheel drive, low to the ground and light in weight is not a combination conclusive to safe winter driving.
Excellent audio system (Bose package). Very peppy and fun to drive. I've had no real problems and have really enjoyed owning this car.
I wish there were a version with optional all-wheel drive (though that would reduce MPG). I would also like to have larger air vents for defrosting the anterior window and a rear windshield wiper. Finally, a trunk release on the key fob would be very handy.
