2005 Mazda 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


This car is the most fun car for the money I have had. It is not the best car you can have for any given situation but it is likely the best car for the money. Handling is great, performance is decent, the car has nice features like xenon lights, 6 disc CD etc. I don't think this car would be half as much fun without the 5 speed which makes you feel like it is going faster than it is. The wagon gives you a little more cargo but it still is a tight squeeze to get your golf clubs in with the seats up. I could have gotten a more expensive car but chose the Mazda. There are better cars out there but looking only at the car, few are better for the price

Best Features

Suspension, xenon lights, well placed controls and nice feeling steering wheel.

Worst Features

As to the car it could only be improved by more power. The sad fact is this is the last Mazda I will buy. In my opinion Mazda dealerships are the worst dealerships I have ever dealt with. 2 Mazdas 2 dealers, same experience. Next time I will just pay the money and get a BMW or Acura.
