2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
This car looks and feels amazing! Handling is top notch, and the acceleration with the S is great. Even at high speeds the car has plenty of pep to reach down and enable easing passing on the highway. The styling is sleek and aggressive. As others have commented, the car gets mistaken for a Lexus IS 250, especially the rear styling.
I've had the car over a year, and I still get a rush each time I get behind the wheel. It makes me feel like a million bucks, without actually having dump thousands more on a highend vehicle.
The road noise is on the loud side, and the bluetooth volume needs to be two separate settings: 1) voice volume; 2) ring volume. The voice volume is often too low, and raising it results in having to deal with the ring tone being set too high.
