Find a better car for the money buy it!!

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


Odometer just turned 61k. Has not been to the garage for anything. Stay below 70 MPH in the highway and you'll get 30+ MPG. Aside from the "cheapy" wiper blade used and easily worn seat upholstery, the car is still in perfect shape or showroom quality. It is fun to drive an a windy and twisty roads. It also goes 110 MPH+, just do it safely. I do my own maintenance and been using hi-grade synthetic oil and K&N air filter. If you can find a better car value than Mazda 3, buy it.. it will be hard to find one. PS, check your battery water periodically. Enjoy!

Best Features

Styling, telescopic/tilt/steering wheel mounted controls. Responsive steering feel.

Worst Features

Cabin sound insulation, more powerful AC and fan, 18" panoramic rear view mirror, after market is $18.; make it standard, will eliminate the "blind" spot on hatchback models.
