2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda3 New Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I've wanted one of these since they came out. Was going to wait 'til spring '09, but this is apparently the last year, so I jumped early. Not sorry I bought it. Absolute blast to drive, stupendous acceleration and corners on rails. Acceptable ride for what it is (my Ram and 300C ride better -- so what?). Acceptable mileage as well.
Auto HID headlights, rain-sensing wipers. THE MOTOR! Fit and finish. Great interior and room. Six-disk MP3 player. Handling and power.
