2008 Mazda Mazda3 New i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I am leasing the new 2008 Mazda3 with the 2.0 liter engine and so far, it has been great. It is the later 2008.5 model with more standard features. It handles extremely well and corners sharp-great for city driving. Amazing MPG as well.
So many features come standard. I got the 6-disc CD and sunroof package for almost nothing but the fog lights, audio controls on the steering wheel, MP3 input, and 17 inch wheels all come standard. Very nice sporty interior too.
Wish it had a little more acceleration but I can't complain too much since I get up to 32 MPG. The only real problem is the plastic around the dash makes a loud, squeaky noise when i go over bumps -- very, VERY annoying.
