2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 New Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Wanted one since they came out. Was going to wait 'til spring '09, but this is the last year, so I jumped early. This car is phenomenal! Great power and handling. Not sorry I bought it. Acceptable mileage (it's not a sipper, but it does very well if driven gently). Very comfortable on a recent weekend trip, and the throttle response is amazing!
Power and handling, auto HID headlights. Rain-sensing wipers. Great fit and finish. Especially like the subdued leather interior. The six-disk MP3 changer is a plus, as well.
Auto-up windows all 'round. Auto locking. A bit more driver leg room would be good, too.
