2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I have had my M3 for two weeks and I must say that it is the "smartest" vehicle purchase I have made to date. To be sure, I've owned vehicles from all of the major manufacturers, starting with a Ford Fiesta, all the way to the gas gobbling Dodge Durango. The Mazda M3 is good looking, sporty, responsive, engineered like a Swiss watch and great on gas. Given the concerns we have today concerning foreign oil and the associated fluctuations in price, the M3 is a real "no brainer".
My favorite features are the sunroof, leather interior, dash design and stereo controls on the steering wheel. I like it all!
Suggested improvements would be increased options on the paint schemes.
