2008 Mazda Mazda3 New s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Needed something small and economical, without being a lame ride. Looked at corolla, and sentra. By far the Mazda 3 has the looks and the performance. Fun to drive, very quick. Not so fuel efficient only getting about 21 combined. Excellent handling.
The triptronic transmission, stability control. The looks. 2.3 engine.
Can't install splash guards with the side body kit. Cabin very noisy on hwy. Center arm rest to far back. Huge blind spot.
