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


My Mazda3 wagon has completely met all my expectations in terms of driving enjoyment, sporty feel, and style. Everyone who has taken a ride in my car has nothing but praise for the design and performance, as they're usually surprised to encounter such a satisfying experience in a compact vehicle. The Mazda3 corners better than any other car in its class, always maintaining the driver's intended line no matter the sharpness of the turn.

Best Features

Interior design: gauges, stereo, eye-catching seats. Enormous glove compartment. The rear hatch can be customized into several different uses - I often split it into two compartments to allow for separate storage of sports equipment.

Worst Features

The only flaw I have found thus far is in the paint job. The exterior must be treated carefully to avoid scratching, and rust-proofing is a must for anyone living in an area of high precipitation or salted roads.
