2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5A)
Originally was going to buy a 3 but upgraded to the itouring and it was a wise decision. This car is a solid performer and since purchasing it new, only regular mainenance has been done and no warranty work has been necessary. I have owned full size SUV's and was surprised to see what I can load in this Mazda with the rear seats folded down. it has a wide opening when the truck is opened up. I enjoy going to manual shift and pushing this vehicle to the limits on tight turns. This car has a very good feel for the road and fun to drive. The cabin tends to be a bit noise at highway speeds but the stereo can automatically adjust the volume to changing speeds which is a nice option.
Driver seat can easily allow for a six foot driver. Blue-tooth is easy to set up and love the voice commands. Controls
on the steering wheel allow for adjusting the radio without being distracted from the road.
Steering wheel positon hides the left turn signal indicator making it difficult to see some of the instruments. The jack inside the arm rest could use some kind of light to easily find the jack.
