2008 Mazda 3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
It was a great car at first and it's lasted throughout all of this crazy weather we've been having in the northeast with the hurricane and rain.
I purchased the car used at 36,000 miles or so and now has about 44,000. On one occasion I left for a trip over a weekend and the car seemed to be hesitant to start. Again, this past weekend I left it over the weekend, which wasn't especially a record cold temp. weekend and came back to a non-starting vehicle. It sounds like it might be the battery, but I left the car a night and if the lights had been on this annoying buzzer goes on in my car before I remove the keys. I'm not sure what it is that is wrong, but I will be bringing it in to find out.
Gear shift you can switch to a short hand manual mode. I also like the fact that it has a few places where I can plug in my appliences like my GPS and my i-pod at the same time if I need to charge both at once
