2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
I have to start this review by saying that this car is just plain fun to drive! It will make your morning commute a happy time. The interior is very nice and refined. The lighting on the gauges is, simply put, very cool. For the price of the car it is amazing what you get inside and out. The bluetooth, steering wheel mounted controls, & sound system are a luxury. Above all, the engine rocks! Put your foot to the pedal and you will not believe it is a 4 cyl. Restrain yourself or let it go, it is your choice. It hops off the line and is agile, sporty, and feels like a V6. During my test drive when I hit the gas, I actually said, "that's what I'm talkin' 'bout". Oh yes, Daddy like!
The surprising and fun power and the interior styling and technology.
Change the front grill to something tougher looking. I can live with it because the car is awesome, but don't make future models look like the car is smiling.
