I love my Mazda, after I replaced the cheap tires that the factory put on it. It handles a lot better and the ride is more smooth. The only problem I've had it the regular service, light bulbs are a pain to get to and I believe mine has a short in it. Sometimes it goes out for no reason at all. All in all, the car is wonderful. In fact, I'm thinking about trading mine in for the 07 model.
The manual lift for the driver seat. Most cars don't offer that if it doesn't have power.
Make the head light assembly easier to get to. Put better tires/brakes on it at factory.
