2008 Mazda Mazda3 New s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
This car is great, the underpinnings are derived from a Volvo s40. The design of the interior looks good and is functional along with the multiple airbags and H beam overhead for rollover protection. The exterior looks great. The engine has plenty of power for the vehicle and tranny doesn't shuffle around for gears, the manual feature is great too. As far as the suspension and brakes are conserned they exceed my expectations by far. For a fwd you can't beat the handling. Overall this car is definitely worth the money.
Handling, MPG I am getting between 27-31 mpg and only 3300 miles on the odo! So it will only get better! The exterior/interior styling, and the heated seats.
Diesel engine, AWD, ability to change hvac/stereo lighting colors.
