2011 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
I've bought this car about a month ago and put about 2,000 miles, and let me say, its amazing to drive. It handles the taconic curves like nobodies business. I love the bucket seats, makes the car feel like a sports car. I do have to admit, the back seat is a little tight for tall passengers, but its not a big deal at all. It's a perfect commuter car in my opinion. I average out 28-30, while doing 75-80 with the AC which is amazing. A full tank gets me about 450-500 miles that's mostly highway mileage . Great car.
I love the fact that I get in the car, and my music starts playing with the Bluetooth, its very user friendly. I also love the way the center console slides further out for more comfort while holding the lever
I would improve the transmission a little, I feel if you try to accelerate quickly, it takes a second or two for it to drop a gear.
