2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This was my first brand new car purchase and my first Mazda and I love this car. I thought the automatic transmission was trash so I got the manual. I get about 26 to 27 miles per gallon under mixed highway and city driving. I drive it pretty hard (I can't help it; it's fun to drive). I got rid of the whip antenna and replaced it with a Shark Fin Antenna and the car looks really nice with it. My friend says it looks almost like a BMW! The car looks REALLY nice in Black.
Fun to drive. Looks good. Spacious interior for a small car. Trunk isn't too bad either.
Cheap paint job. It handles good, but wish it handled a little better. Maybe I need better tires.
