We were in search of a 4 door, compact
car with an automatic for a reasonable
price. When we drove the ES, we were
very impressed. The car drove like a
much more expensive car and had very
good steering and road feel. Decent
automatic with smooth shifts. Good
brakes. Interior very nice. 1% over
invoice pricing and a $1500 Mazda
rebate sealed the deal for us.
Excellent handling and road feel.
Interior very comfortable and materials
seem high quality.
A little more horsepower, but not a big
deal. 4yr/50K warranty instead of
