2008 Mazda Mazda3 New i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
--A+-- I researched cars for months drove 1/2 dozen others in the class, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Kia and ended up selling myself on a Mazda3 before I ever drove one. Started out considering larger vehicles, but when gas prices shot up once again and my path was clear, I commute 60 miles a day and had to consider mileage. When I did test drive my Mazda3 it was clear, this was my car, only decision left was color. Problem now is that I like it so much I don't want to put big miles on it so fast (this was a replacing my 1999 nissan P/U which already has over 170,000/miles!). I've started sharing the commute load between all 3 of my cars so the Mazda3 is in my driveway for years
Zoom Zoom - Mazda picked the right logo!! Love the steering wheel operated stereo & cruise Handles fantastic. Very responsive. Plenty of head and leg room - I'm 6'2". Good power. Decent mileage, avg 27-28/MPG. Did I say it has great handling? Fun to drive!
Fog lights only come on if the head lights are on - would like to be able to use these independent of each other
