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


I bought this car brand new (coming out of a Mazda Millenia) with 7 miles on it. 5 years and 120,000+ miles later I am still a proud owner. This is one reliable car with nothing needing replacing with the exception of normal wear and tear items (I went 115k on the original front brake pads!). I've been through 2 sets of tires and 2 rear brake jobs that's it. It is so much fun to drive and that means a lot to someone who spends a lot of time in their car. Gas mileage has been around 25 mpg.

Best Features

Zippiness, reliability, sporty look

Worst Features

No trunk button on remote (addressed in later years), flimsy carpeting around dead pedal area, floor mats wear in the heel area.
