2008 Mazda 3 New s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Traded in my 2003 Mustang GT convertible for this vehicle and I must say I love this car. Even with going from 8 cyl down to 4, I still get plenty of power and pickup from this car, especially from a stop. Ride is great, very quiet and tight. Bose stereo system is very nice as well. This is a great car for someone looking to get a small car, but still wants to spend a little money for comforts and options (auto lights and wipers are cool!). The only "complaint" is the somewhat low MPG for such a small vehicle. I have been averaging 26-28 MPG combined according to the onboard computer (if I calculate it the old fashioned way, I estimate 28-30 MPG).
Stereo, performance, auto wipers/headlights.
Improved MPG, trunk is just a hair small (hard to fit even a set of golf clubs), doors won't lock with remote until they are all closed, need to separate clock from computer so I can have MPG and clock up at the same time.
