2008 Mazda 3 New i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This car doesn't seem to lack all that much. Best priced in it's class. Ample power from the 2.0 engine. The stiffer suspension allows the car to hug turns in the road like a nothing else I've driven except a corvette. Fun to drive.Road noise is a bit above average on the highway. Stock Goodyear tires are junk. The wear way to fast and are no good in light snow. MPG is not bad I've gotten 26 mpg combined many times. Interior is smartly designed and comfortable for a small car. Base sound system sounds good but aftermarket speakers dramatically improves sound. If you're looking for a sport compact without a high price, this is the car.

Favorite Features

Handling is outstanding, body styling, sound system, mpg at 26 combined hwy/city, spacious trunk for a small car, quiet engine for a 4 cylinder with ample power, overall quality that you. S. Car makers should copy, stormy blue mica paint

Suggested Improvements

A little noisy on the highway, stock Goodyear tires are no good. Stiffer ride (but this car falls into the sports car class in my estimation), paint seems to chip a bit easier ( read complaints on that) but not a real issue at this time. Seat bottoms could be a 2 inches deeper for more thigh support
