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


We love our new Mazda3. We got the fully loaded touring edition with the sport 5 speed auto transmission. We have not had an automatic for 25 years. This is a pleasure to drive in both auto and manual mode. I just drove the length of Mulholland Highway today, switching between the two shift modes. It really is a pleasure to feel the quality and performance of a well-made small car. Works well for shopping trips also. All the grand touring extras seem to be worth the extra money ... trip computer, high tech adjustable headlights, premium audio, etc. They all work and we are using them. Great car.

Best Features

Handling, sport auto transmission, appearance, interior fit and finish.

Worst Features

After my first 1000 miles, I can't think of any.
