I just got home from the dealership, I really love this car. It's got a sweet interior. I test drove an 07 Civic LX sedan and this had more power, not much by horsepower, but I think the Mazda3 is also lighter, so it has a higher power to weight ratio. Really like the 16" rims and 4 wheel disk brakes. Real fun to drive.
I love the instrument panel, the red is very nice. All the features are easy to use. Its acceleration and handling are great. Love the exterior design. I love this car.
the keyring should have a trunk release and maybe just a little better mpg, but it's still not bad.
