2011 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
I decided to replace my 2007 Focus. Looked at 2010 Corrola, 2010 Civic and Accord. After reading reviews people said to look at the mazda3. I drive around 30k just to work and I wanted a fun but good car to drive. After test driving all of them the mazda3 was the one for me. The Toyota was the best deal for the money but felt numb to drive. Honda was nice but lacked bluetooth and nice radio. I got a great deal on a 2011 mazda3 s sport with Bose/roof package. I love how it drives. I hope it will give me the 200k+ miles I am looking for. So far getting 30 mpg on highway. And me driving so many miles I wanted fun to drive.
BOSE,bluetooth and the way everything is laid out. The car is a blast to drive.
Better gas mileage but that's what you get with a 2.5L vs a 1.8L. Nothing so far but I have only had the thing 5 days. Wise you could order everything without packages.
