Love my Mazda 3! I have had a lot of new cars, but this one is one of the best I have owned. It runs great, handles great, is fun to drive, and gets fantastic gas mileage. Recently drove to PIT from Meadville, PA and got aver 43 mpg, which in my book, is great, considering I set the cruise at 72 when I could. i have had a couple Miatas which were a little more fun, but for a sedan at a great price, definitely consider a Mazda 3 and take a test drive. Doesn't have the power some would like, but I hear rumors that a new Mazdaspeed 3 will be out again soon!
