Thought it would be faster!
By I want to go fast on
2010 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
After turning in my Mazda 6 I decided to try out the 3. The Grand Touring is worth the extra bucks with heated leather seats, moon-roof etc. The gas mileage for a smaller car kinda stinks since the best I could get is 24 mpg. The handling around tight turns is fun although I wish the car was faster. I thought the 2.5 engine on a smaller car would be better. The best 0-60 I could get was around 8 seconds. My manual shifting days are over so when they come out with the Mazda Speed in an automatic, I'm there!
With 8 bose speakers factory installed, I thought this would be the best sounding radio I've ever had but unfortunately it's the worst. Terrible reception and the sound is missing an entire range. Cd's sound a lot better and MP3's sound amazing but the tuner for AM/FM is really bad!
