2008 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


After 4 years of driving this car, the car runs smooth and have not had any serious issues with the car.
Everything functions well.
I did have to bring the car in for warranty repair because of an oil leak coming from the oil pan but I think my local dealer messed up repairing it and had to replace one of the cylinder head and that took about two weeks.
The tires are just about wear out after 45,000 miles and I didn't experience any issues with tires wearing out fast.
I averaged about 30 MPG on a 2.3 engine but my driving style usually gives me higher MPG than manufacturer's MPG rating.
I couldn't find a vehicle with more features than this car for the price I paid.

Best Features

Radio controls on steering wheel and AUX plug for MP3/Ipod. The Auto-Stick is a nice feature.

Worst Features

Minor detail but I wish the power window would have a click feature to shut the window all the way like it does when you click to open the windows fully.
