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


This car is very fun to drive, especially with the 5 speed manual. Ride is firm and sporty, it sticks to the road like gum. Interior is cool to look at and feel of materials is up to par with other Japanese makers. The design is the best for cars in this group! Check engine light came on about 1500 miles, but that was just a gas cap issue, no problem. Although the 12v outlet did blow a fuse, replaced of course, again no big deal.

Best Features

In dash 6 CD, 5 speed manual, and the fun to drive factor. The six speaker sound system is just fine, don't pay more for the Bose. Cool gauge cluster.

Worst Features

Either a bigger gas tank or better mileage out of the 2.3L. Other than that, it's a great car, Can't wait for the MazdaSpeed edition
