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


I've had my car for a week now. Maybe I should have sprung a little more money for the leather and sunroof and Bose stereo, but that's OK. I'm trying to save some money anyway! Car has great power for a 4 cylinder. It pulls a hill on the freeway in my area in 5th gear at 60-65 no problem. Flat cornering, great steering, awesome shifter/clutch.

Best Features

Steering wheel controls, nice driver's seat, instrument lighting, tons of standard features, good engine, sporty design, good balance of performance and fuel mileage. Side airbags.

Worst Features

A little more room in the footwell area for the driver; my size 13 shoes are a tight fit. A bit more right knee room for the driver would be good too. Rear seating is a little tight, but will do in a pinch. Better availability (these cars are somewhat hard to find).
