2008 Mazda Mazda3 New s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
A very fun car to drive. Great handling and one of the peppiest in its class. My only inconvenience with this model is that the headrests block the rear view mirror's view and the side window design makes it challenging to see cars in either lane when changing lanes. Took a little bit of adjustment to turn my head more to the sides before changing lanes to catch the blind spot. Can't say enough good about his car. I've had Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas and the Protege before, and this car is by far the best for handing, acceleration, and just pure fun. The other did however have better fuel economy.
Nimble handling and power to accelerate when you need it.
Smaller head rests. How is able to put their heads on them anyway? ;-) Better fuel economy.
