A blast to drive

Review

You won't find a sportier car in this price range. The stiff suspension and quick acceleration make this car a blast to drive. However, if you're looking for a luxurious, comfortable ride, you may want to consider a Civic because the stiff suspension in the M3 makes for a bumpy ride. I personally don't mind it because I bought the car for its superior handling and acceleration and so far I absolutely love the car.

Great car, fun to drive. Handles well. Many amenities that other cars in its class don't even offer. Drive it so you can see!

A gamble over the Civic and Corolla

Review

I gambled by purchasing the 3 over the Corolla and the Civic and it has paid off so far. Never before have I owned a vehicle that is this fun to drive and with the features that came on my vehicle I really feel special. Xenon lamps, navigation, it has it all. It's reliable, has "giddi-up" and is a real looker too. I am very happy with my purchase.

Many problems!

2005 Mazda Mazda3 Sedan i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I am very dissapointed with my Mazda3! I've had it for 6 months and I've had many problems with it. I live in Ottawa, Canada and winters here are quite cold. The car never started on the first try on a cold day, no hot air (there is a defect in all 2004's that no one knows about), there is noise when one turns (most likely from the axles), interior rattles quite often, and the biggest frustration is the vibrations from under the seat. I've been fighting with my dealership to fix these problems, but so far they do not have any clue what causes such things. The replaced my axles, brake pads, heating system, and nothing has been FIXED! Be warned about this car.

Worthy of the All the Praise

2005 Mazda Mazda3 Sedan s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Our Mazda3 (S model, nearly all options) has lived up to the hype so far (3,000 miles). This is my (soon-to- be) wife's daily driver and she is constantly speaking of how much fun it is to drive and how many positive remarks she gets from others. The handling is crisp and responsive; the acceleration is better than adequate (some torque-steer present and can bog down at low RPMs). The seating position is a bit higher than I'm used to, but you feel well confined. The A-pillar (along windshield) can obstruct views. The trunk is large (and so is the trunk lid). Our car has the 17" wheels and rides on the rough side. In all, an much more rewarding alternative to the typical commuter sedan.

Review

This is a wonderful car. I compared it to other similar cars in its class (Civics, Jettas, Golfs, Subarus, Corollas) and the M3 stands above all of them. I am elated to have purchased this car!

Great Little Car

Review

Nice acceleration even with an automatic. Looks great! Turns corners like it's on rails and stops on a dime. And it's decently priced.
