The Mazda 3 was too noisy inside and the Elantra Touring had too many internal rattles from loose door panels or something. The Fiesta was too small and the Corolla too boring
For me in this case the gauges were something i didnt notice right off with my several test drives under daylight conditions. It was only after living with the car for a while that this issue became evident
