2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I just got a Mazda3 S Touring 5 door galaxy grey and its really sweet! I test drove the Honda Civic. I am 6'3 and didn't fit too well inside and it was a little slow. I also test drove the Acura RSX and the same thing. Then I test drove the M3 and it was awesome, really roomy and drives like a dream. I am 21 and it's my first new car. I have a little over 600 miles so far and it's perfect so far.
I love the galaxy grey, and I really like the sleek look of the 5 door. Really roomy, and I like the 156 HP i4, it's quick enough for me. And the steering is very responsive. I also like the manumatic transmission.
Gas mileage; only getting about 20MPG - hopefully it gets better. I overpaid for the S touring model, but it's an 07. Some of the interior is cheaply made.
