Great dynamics, so-so build quality

2009 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The driving dynamics of the car are hard to beat. Snappy transmission, soft clutch, responsive steering, linear brakes, and agile suspension. The engine power is adequate, but well matched to the car. The interior is well appointed with leather seating, heated seats, moon roof, premium stereo (which is decent, but not great), and HID headlights. The materials feel of high grade, and the design is sharp. The only gaff is the crammed info LCD. The build quality leaves something to be desired. The interior looks fine and the gaps are minimal, but after only 400 miles, I've already got a ridiculous windshield rattle (ticking might be more apt) and buzz in the headliner near the moonroof.
Favorite Features
Driving dynamics, well appointed interior, solid materials for interior, exterior styling
Suggested Improvements
Improve build quality. Too many buzz and rattles for a car with only 400 miles on it.
