2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5A)
The first Mazda owned in this family. The main purpose of the purchase is for gas mileage. Been averaging 32 miles to the gallon to date w/ 2.0 in mostly open driving. Compared to the SUV we traded, I hardly think about gas stations. The mileage range is about the same on half the amount of fuel. The car is responsive and has been a pleasure with 4,000 miles in a few short months. I'm 6 3 and have had no issues finding a comfortable driving position nor issues with the comfort of vehicle. The transmission makes the car feel peppy and fun to drive. Trunk space is good for a car this size. So far only one small issue, a loose rear stabilizer bar at 3000, fixed quickly and without hassle.
Bluetooth, gas mileage, peppiness, easy to drive/manure, tilt/telescope and seat adjuster
base radio/speakers functionally is just adequate, a little more insulation to quiet interior to make bluetooth a more effective tool at highway speed
