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


I replaced my 2003 Ford Ranger Edge with the Mazda3 and couldn't be happier. The Mazda3 is by far the most sport tuned compact in its class. No car can compare. I continue to be shocked by the performance from such an inexpensive compact car. The seats are firm but comfortable. The ride sound is a little louder than most but I was willing to compromise for the 17 inch wheels and sport suspension. My $19,000 car has more options, bigger wheels, better acceleration, better handling and the same reliability as my mother's $28,000 Honda Accord. You can't go wrong with the Mazda3.

Best Features

My favorite features are the 17 inch stock rims and the 160 hp engine. I also like the interior layout of the car. The dashboard looks high class for a $19,000 car.

Worst Features

I would recommend that the Mazda3 5 door comes with factory tinted windows since everyone is doing it aftermarket anyway.
