2006 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Great all around car. Handles like a dream (Volvo S40 underpinnings). Brakes like a roller coaster. Quick revving engine. Auto transmission is eager to downshift, sometimes too eager. Only gripes, no MP3 input and mileage from EPA overstated. If you are considering a Civic, Corolla or a Rabbit, get your head examined. They are a joke. If you are looking at a Civic Si, look at the MazdaSpeed 3. No comparing the two.

Best Features

Looks. Handling, braking, engine and build quality. Comfort (excellent but not overdone bolstering on the front seats).

Worst Features

Better mileage. MP3/aux jack.
