2012 Mazda 3 i Touring 4dr Sedan w/SKYACTIV-G (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
Bought with 3 miles on it. Has been great car. Well designed interior and great styling. Performace and economy are outstanding. Mazda is an under rated company. The value of the this car is amazing compared to other imports. Fit and finish are top notch.
Recently the car was struck broadside by and Escalade and walked away scratch free. Airbags did the job. The car almost totaled but did not. A really safe and strong car. I highly recommend Mazda, the entire brand.
Autostick shift is fun to play with and really lets you push the 2.0 a lot farther than the computer is set for. However, the gas goes with the performance. Still fun on back roads.
The only downside is the noise. It could use a lot more sound deadening material to help in the cabin. At highway speed is bit louder than I had expected with the solid fit and finish of the car.
