2010 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
This car has everything I need(fuel economy, fun drive, sunroof, Bluetooth, leather seat) and more than I need (Bose speaker, memory seat, BT audio, Adaptive head light). I was comparing with Mini Cooper, Honda Civic and VW Golf GTI and these cars have some good features, but overall, Mazda3 has better value than these. Plus, 0 down, 0% APR/60 month, no payment until e/April pushed me forward to purchase this car!!
BT Audio is great!! I play PODCAST from my cell phone everyday during my commute. Adaptive Head Light is also great.
Fuel Efficiency. I am driving 50% on Hwy but still avg. shows 21mpg. Also computer shows my avg. speed is around 30mil, which I know this is wrong. I hope Mazda will update the program in near future. Also in Japan, they offer idle stop (stops engine completely at stop light). Why not in U.S?
