2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I had a 2004 Mazda3, which was fun and trouble free until it was totaled by an incompetent idiot. The resale value was such that I got $2k less than I'd paid 2 years before! I value the driving experience and reliability, and for replacement narrowed it down to this or the Civic, but after a drive there was no contest. Unlike the Civic, the controls are perfectly positioned and weighted, the handling is superb, power is good, gearbox is short-throw, precise, pleasant. It looks good, and is well equipped. Love the small leather steering wheel, shame the gearstick is no longer leather. Improvements for 2007 are slightly more refined suspension, stiffer chassis, mp3 input jack.

Favorite Features

Handling, driving experience, looks, reliability, resale value.

Suggested Improvements

Suspension is still a bit harsher than it has to be. Fuel economy is very disappointing, averaging 28mpg. What happened to the great copper mica color of pre-2007?
