2009 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
This is my first car, and as such I am simply glad to have one, but I have fallen in love with pretty much every aspect of the car. It has very good handling and a fairly peppy engine, although it is not a Corvette by any means. The aesthetics are very high quality and good looking both inside and out. Mine came with a 4 speaker audio system, but for a 4 speaker, the sound output is very high quality with rumbling bass and clear trebles. The only gripe I have is that power windows/door locks are only available in higher trim levels costing almost $3000 more. I have also had to replace the gas cap, but apparently this has been redesigned and will not get stuck as my old one did.
AUX audio input, steering wheel audio controls, gear speed indicator in speedometer
Offer a "power package" for less than the price of a new trim level.
