I considered a civic but this car is
better looking inside and out. It's got
more power and designed better and I
paid a thousand less. Its got a lot of
little features that most cars at this
price wouldn't dream of. I am averageing
33mpg and have gotten 38mpg on a trip.

It also has plenty of room for its size.

down flat. ABS brakes should be

never even heard about the Mazda 3.
Friend mentioned it, I was trying to be
very opened minded when looking for a
car. I tested it and fell in love. I
love all of the features and price
range. My friend has a 2003 Acura TL
type S and there were features mine had
that he wish his had. Power is good.
Good gas milages for the size of the
car. I LOVE this car.
6 disc, CD controls on that steering
wheel, Gauges, and over style of the
