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


Bought M3 back in May after trading 03 Civic EX Coupe. This is definitely the best compact out there due to the refined interior, impressive acceleration, and nimble handling. No other compact I've driven in this price range has the ability to "wow" me like the Mazda. My 5-speed Touring has leather, sunroof, 6-disc changer, and Sirius with an MSRP right at $20k. I've heard the factory tires do not last too long, but considering the way this car makes me want to drive, I can see why they do not last. Sure, the rear seat is small, but it is a compact. All in all, no regrets!

Best Features

Handling, power, 5-speed, styling.

Worst Features

Maybe make center armrest longer or possibly extendable. Nothing else comes to mind.
