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


Car looks great and handles well, but...

The 2.0, 4 cylinder is low on power.
I expected a bit more zip for a small car with almost 150 HP.
Gas mileage below avg. for a car this size.
Only get a few mpg more than my Toyota Camry V-6.

Handles great, but ride suffers.
If you like to feel every bump in the road, you will love this car.
Replacing the OEM tires helps, especially with road noise.

Interior design is nice, but materials are of average quality, which I expect for a car in this category.
Developed a few noises & small intermittent rattles not long after purchase.
Some I remedied, the dealer fixed one, some remain.
A/C is weak & must keep on high during days over 90'
