This is the first Mazda I have ever purchased. This car has so much value, from the off-the-charts performance at this price point, to the interior styling, that I've become a hard core Mazda fan. I am an avid cyclist and golfer so the roominess of the hatchback was the initial attraction. I can safely highly recommend this vehicle to any consumer who needs the room for outdoor gear and family (or friends) but who also is a driving enthusiast. The only downside, some passengers might not be too keen on the sports suspension. The easy remedy is to allow them to drive, just once, and they'll be convinced its all worth it.
1. Engine performance. 2. Interior styling. 3. Massive cargo space for vehicle this size. 4. MP3 player connection. 5. 3rd gear!
1. Standard install of switching box (only needed in cases where satelite radio is installed) 2. More color options.
