Smooth city car
By Juan de fuca on


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


Great car! I did a ton of research before buying this car and drove just about everything I could find (Toyota/Scion,Honda,Chevy,Ford....). Nothing felt as solid and responsive as the 3. So far (4,000 miles) this car is great; it's smooth, well built, the fuel economy isn't spectacular but it is reasonably good (25-28). It is a little too easy to speed.The clutch is good and the shifter is excellent. I can actually lay down in back to sleep! And I'm 6ft tall! I highly recommend this car. Bargain for the price.

Best Features

Handling, responsiveness and road communication is excellent, this car doesn't feel cheap at all. Really good in tight traffic.

Worst Features

My only complaints are in the radio; Seems overdone plus I don't think I'll ever be able to put another kind of stereo in, and the options are overpriced. Side airbags should be standard
