2008 Mazda MAZDA3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
Bought the car for my 25 mile (one way) trip to work. After 8,000 miles, could not be happier. Averages about 32 MPG on highway. Very agile and turning radius is incredible. I test drove a few other small cars; this is the only one I felt a smirk come across my face during the test. I wish I had purchased the manual transmission. Only initial complaint was the seats, I had to use a seat cushion to be comfortable (very minor).
Controls on steering wheel. Also, the steering and handling.
More comfortable seats and a larger trunk. Also, I don't like how the air conditioner automatically comes on when you turn the thermostat all of the way to cold.
