I traded in my 04 Mazda 3 5-dr for this. I test drove it, drove it home. Everyone at the dealership was mad because they didn't get a chance to drive it before it got sold. lol The clutch takes a little getting used to as it catches very early. Also ride is a little harsher than my 3, but i attribute that to 18" lower profile tires and better suspension. I take turns going twice what i did in my old car. Stock tires are only summers so make sure you get a set of winter tires(+seperate wheels, it will save you money in the long run) if you live anywhere that gets anything more than a flurry. The bluetooth is great, good stereo. Torque steer is not that bad. Overall, would buy it again.
Bluetooth, performance tires, great brakes, great acceleration for passing on highway.
Cold Air Intake from Factory, be able to add parts of the tech package after the factory. I really wanted the HID headlights with AFS and taillights. But i don't really care to have BSM, push-button start, and nav.
