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

Review

I have owned it for 5 months now with 7500 miles on it. I am highly satisfied with it. It's more like a cheap Audi A3/A4 than a compact. There is attention to detail in every part of this car. This is the only compact car to have a personality. I am surprised to see people buying Jettas paying 5k more instead of the 3. I found the 3 to be better in all respects except the interior. Go for it.

Favorite Features

Rugged cloth seats. Attention to detail in every part of the car. Good balance of ride and handling. Sound build quality. 17 inch alloys. Eye catching looks. Made in Japan. Mica paint finish. Perfect driving position. Lotsa interior space (wagon). Good fuel economy if you are easy on the throttle.

Suggested Improvements

More low end torque. Heard a few complaints about the auto tranny not shifting smoothly; though I own a manual and I have no problems with it.
