2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I bought it new and had to let it go when my son was born.
Owned it for 56K miles.
Never had any problems with it.
I commuted from NJ to CT every three days and the car was very comfortable, excelled well on I-95 and the Merrit Pkwy, and had great fuel economy.
Would have kept it forever, however, the rear seats, once my son moved beyond the infant car-seat stage, became too small.
Great for a couple or if you have older children in front-facing booster seats.
Miss the car!
Easy to U-turn in NYC.
Suspension may not be for everybody. Rigid sport so other cars feel more comfortable.
