2009 Mazda 3 i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Have this car for about a month. So far, wife and I are very pleased with the seat comfort,interior materials and design. I also like the quick pick up from a red light that makes it seem as if there's a much larger engine than the 2.0 L 148 HP standard mill. Very nimble cornering and turning... I avoided a stuck car in the middle lane of a major highway with it's quick steering response, but steering is too sensitive at 60 mph + and requires constant minor corrections to stay in lane.

Favorite Features

The Dashboard, cruise and radio controls on the steering wheel, Huge locking glove compartment, firm bolstered seats, effective windshield washer, excellent headlights illuminate the entire road and the foglights make the lighting even better.

Suggested Improvements

Speedometer "0" miles should be repositioned to 8 o'clock. Large "C" pillars and high rear window limit visibility. Need louder Horn; it sounds like it's on a baby carriage or shopping cart. Need OEM Battery that doesn't require owner to check electrolyte levels every week.
