2008 Mazda 3 New s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I have enjoyed the car for 5 months and over 7000 miles. On a 7 hour drive the car proved comfortable and peppy. Fitted heated side view mirrors. Overall mpg 21-26, which is okay. The car feels steady on highways - does not sway. Overall a very good car. Mazda should shorten the rear bumper depth and may be improve trunk space or the rear seat space by a few more inches.
Heated side mirrors must be std., GPS should be programmable while moving, need bluetooth phone interface, power passenger seat, seat heaters with automatic cutoff, one-switch operation for sunroof, rear middle seat belt placement awkward, some of the plastic surface scuff easily
