2007 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Slow, very unresponsive engine below 4K. The 2.0 liter in my RSX Type S feels much stronger than the 2.3 in this. Handling is good when driven at 7 tenths, but gets sloppy when pushed to the limits. Very long list of features, but quality is extremely disappointing:driver's seat squeaks badly (driver is 100 lbs), dash rattles horribly, driver's side window slams into frame when rolling up and rear left door vibrates badly when opened and is extremely hard to shut. I now know why Mazda offers so many things on this car; it's b/c they cannot match Honda and/or Toyota in terms of quality and refinement.

Best Features

HIDs, leather/heated seats, aux jack, TPMS, exterior design, gas-shock trunk supports.

Worst Features

Leather/heated seats, but no power seats? Come on... Power mirrors, but no heated mirrors? Get rid of electronic throttle, it kills the throttle response Quality control.
