2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
So i have owned this car for about 4 months now. A fully loaded GT hatchback. I gotta say that mazda has paid attention to EVERY little detail in this car. When you enter the car, even before turning it on, the dials begin to illuminate slowly and the air conditioning controls pulse as the screen on the car reads "zoom-zoom". It just gets you excited to even press the ignition button. You hear the car rev, a pleasant tone is played and the cars headlights move around to calibrate. LOVE it! Try test driving this car at dusk, thats when all the cabin details in this thing can show off. Handling is good, i feel like the hatchback version does have more body roll, but thats what you get.
Interior lighting and details, the BOSE system actually has active noise canceling in the cabin - you can turn this feature off and here a LOT of extra wind noise while driving, so it definitely works. Seat warmers. sirius radio. Exterior details.
I wish the navigation system would default the CITY you are in, as it only defaults the state and i have to enter the city with every destination which is tedious since you have to use the toggle switch to do it. Not too confident in the engine, gets confused when you suddenly push it.
