2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I dumped my horribly unreliable Volkswagen Jetta to buy this car, and I couldn't have made a better choice. It has been totally reliable and fun to drive. Gas economy is great. It's also super cute. Last summer I drove it down the West Coast and had a blast. It is comfortable for long trips, but also really convenient in the city. With factory issued tires it is not great in the snow. I have to put on tire chains at Mt. Hood when it's snowing.
Interior design, steering wheel controls, good sound system, fun to drive, fuel economy
I can't really think of any. It's a wonderful car, thoughtfully designed inside and out.
