2008 Mazda Mazda3 New i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Sold SUV because of gas prices and got a 2008 Mazda 3 i Touring Value Edition. Excellent car especially for the money. I got a copper red mica color, 5 spd, 17" wheels, foglights, one touch moonroof, 6 disc w/ auxiliary input and excellent sound, power windows and keyless remote, soft touch plastics and good interior feel, and neat interior illumination. I have had it for about 2 weeks and can't wait to get in it every time. First time I got 29.92 mpg with the 2.0 5-speed but that was mixed driving. Only city, I get about 24 or 25. After comparing to the Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic respectively, this was definitely the best choice
Interior illumination, one touch moonroof, awesome 6 disc sound with aux. input, steering feel, carves corners, exceptional handling, 5 speed linkage is seamless, fog lights, 17" wheels. Reminds me a lot of the new BMW 1-series
Trunk release on keyfob is a must!! Maybe quiet down the road noise, but its tolerable because it is small sports sedan with a short wheelbase.
