Great all around car
By filthburger on
2012 Mazda 3 i Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback w/SKYACTIV-G (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
I drove an 02 Civic Si for 9 years and loved it.
Traded it in on a CX-7, but the CX-7 did not quite get me what I wanted.
I traded it in on the newer Mazda 3 Wagon with the I Grand Touring package.
I love it.
My gas has been 38mpg while commuting, mostly freeway at 65-70mph and has been 36mpg on a long trip doing 80+ most of the way.
I'm 6'3" 220lbs and am fairly comfortable in it.
could have more head room, but it's not bad at all.
I would not want to put 4 adults my size in it, but can fit the little woman and a 9 and 11 year old in the back.
I think the nav is a little useless due to the fact that phones have a better one these days.
peppy engine, decent storage.
heated seats help my back out a lot.
i even use it in the summer here in SoCal.
The leather is a better quality than the CX-7 i owned.
it handles like a cat.
gas mileage rocks.
would have liked 17" rims and fog lights for what i paid, but i understand that i have a lot of tech in this car for the money.
tinted windows would have been nice, but i've fixed that.
wish it came with the roof rack.
