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


Bought this in July 06 to replace a gas guzzling Pathfinder. We had 1 Mazda before, an older Protege 5. This does not get the mileage the Pro 5 got (31/35), but that was also underpowered and the M3 has the bigger engine. We have the manual with the moonroof. I put an iPod module in it, and to my surprise you can run the iPod off the steering wheel. We drive a lot, and it's very comfortable on long rides. No road noise, handles great in good and bad weather (Good in New England snow too). If you're worried about safetly don't be. My wife has been hit 3 times and this car is rock solid, surprising for a small car. All in all, very very dependable sporty car. Buy one!

Best Features

Moon roof, huge glove box, dash lights, handling, gas mileage

Worst Features

An iPod aux on all models, that's it!
