2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
My little Mazda was a replacement for a Honda. This car handles much better and is more fun to drive. I chose the 2.5 because I was driving a 200 hp car and thought the car not have great pick-up if i chose the smaller engine. This engine has fantastic pick-up and handles well and best of all uses regular gasoline. The dash is very modern and it has ample lighting for night driving. The white/gray display screen is not attractive and does not match the other parts on the dash. It's like an alien screen. Also I would have liked a leather option but grey not black.
The small steering wheel with the leather wrap. The easy to use controls and the lighting pattern on the dash and doors.
Needs more options including front and rear mudflaps and side door protection molding to keep the dings away. The mileage screen needs to match the other digital screens. Better gas mileage and light strips on the mirrors. Lastly heated seats would be a nice item.
