2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car to replace a 1997 Mitsibishi Eclipse. It is a nice car, I bought it for the looks based on the price. It's pearl white and the paint looks really good. It's a manual and it is pretty fun to drive. Not all that comfortable as I am 6'2" and it's awkward because of the lack of tilt/telescoping action. The car has 16200 miles on it with no problems.
Looks, style, mileage (somewhat, gets avg. 25 mpg), love the sunroof, very room with lots of cargo space.
Cheap interior. Have a few rattles that drive me crazy. Gas pedal and brake pedal too close together. Above all, the tilt/telescoping steering is worthless in my opinion. If you're going to offer the option, add more movement to accomidate all size drivers I need more tilt AND telscoping action
