2007 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
It's quick when you need it, it looks like a sharp euro car, especially in White. I've driven 85k in the 2 years I've had it, not one problem except new tires, no surprise. When I use Mobil 1 5-20 and drive 55, I get 40 mpg! Can you show me another non-hybrid car at this price that performs like that? at under $14k, the 07 is perfect for anyone on a lower budget. The 2.3 engine is faster and offers more color choices, but you'll lose 5 mpg. The 2.0 is fast enough unless you have ego issues.
love the sunroof/stereo package. definitely worth it. the ipod connection was a must have also.
No excuse for not having a trunk button on the remote. I don't like speakers on the rear door as they loosen over time from doors opening and closing, and the sound absorption by the backseats dims the volume. Put them in the back dash. Gas cap should be on the driver's side, not passenger side.
