2009 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Overall fun car. We picked this up at a dealership while searching for another car. The salesperson showed and had us test drive and we drove it home.
We got rid of our 04 Escape. We now get better MPG, handling and all around fun!
With studded tires this car will go anywhere! This actually handles better than my Escape did. Zoom Zoom!! With a rather heavy foot and a bit of city traffic we still got 28 MPG.
Road noise is a little bothersome. That much more when winter tires are installed.
