2007 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
It is incredible in dry weather. Nice quick ride and rather cheap to own. Oil changes are awful as they have a plastic shield you have to remove first and Jiffy lube just cuts through it to get to the filter. I greased the 8 bolts so they do not rust up so quickly. Park this car when it snows - it is very dangerous. I cannot even get up a slight incline. completly useless. As much as I love driving it in good weather I will be forced to get rid of it as it is 100% useless on any little bit of snow.
Handling and sporty. Good gas mileage
Better tires and better use in snow. Better design for oil changes
