2008 Mazda 3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have 2000 mi. so far. All city miles so far. Mileage has steadily climbed starting at 28.5 to 31 mpg. There seems to be a gearing gap from 1st to 2nd gear. Trunk is roomy and back seats work great for my 7 and 11 yr olds. I think there should be more interior colors available. I wish there was a 6th gear for the highway. Not sure why the a/c turns on when you turn the temperature control know back all the way to cool.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Good mileage. Looks great.

Worst Features

Horn is really weak. Add a 6th gear and spread out gear ratios across the spectrum. Radio reception could be better. Cigarette lighter will not charge phone unless motor is running. More interior colors.
