Drove one for about a week during the winter/spring. All around amazing car with phenominal value. Handles very well and is quite versatile. Comfortable and spacious as well. My only gripe is that on the highway doing 70-75mph the engine is spinning above 3500rpm! I would bet that we see a 6-speed version of the mazda 3 soon as the driveline is right out of the Ford SVT focus.
