2008 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
All in one top car for its class. Power when you need it, MPG's are adequate enough, Stops on a dime, Frontal chassis & great suspension provide a great ride. Interior features only lack cruise control, gps and a driver's seat with height position ajustment but the telescopic steering wheel make up for it. The center arm rest and compartment console position you perfectly and even when the seat quality is less then the top model it extends on it's side to hold you in place. The sound system rocks, I especially like the dash design and everything to go with it, fit and finish is perfect. Passenger space is adequate for a car its size and I vehemently disagree with others the truck is big.
European slick styling sporty look, front and rear light design. This car is beautiful and performs marvelously. Mazda truly put their hearts and soul in effort into this masterpiece car at an incredibly affordable price. Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla or Scion TC come close to this car.
Passenger door metal sheet needs to be thicker it's too thin, it's why the car's side crash test had problems.
