2009 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I am a 50 year old driver and have owned several cars for 12+ years so I was looking for a practical & reliable car. Boring right? Well, the Mazda 3i is all about practical & reliable...but the cool factor is off the chart too. I compared sevaral cars in the class for the following features: independent suspension & abs disk brakes on all 4 wheels, twin cam 4 cylinder, alloys, 4 doors, timing chain (not belt), cruise, curtain airbags, nice sounding sound system. I got all this and lots more at a much better price than I thought possible with the 3i value package. The 3 is assembled in japan which, in my experience, means very high quality. This car rocks.
incredibly fun to drive. A 5 speed stick is the perfect for this car! the styling still looks great and turns heads even though it's been around for a few years.
standard bluetooth, 6 speed manual option, side mirror defrost.
