2009 Mazda 3 i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Edmunds pushed me to buy a Mazda 3. I had intended to buy a Civic to use as a commuter car. Honestly, the car is what Edmunds said it was but it is still somewhat disappointing overall. Basically, the Mazda 3 lacks the zoom- zoom promised by Mazda. This is just a commuter car with poor fuel mileage. There are some nice aspects however such as attractive interior and exterior styling. But overall it is not worth the money. It's just a Mazda 3 after all.

Best Features

Interior and exterior styling, decent sound system, sure-footed handling.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, reduce the horrendous road noise, improve on the pathetic stock tires, improve sluggish acceleration (dies going up a hill), need bigger trunk, hard plastic interior materials need to be soft.
