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

Review

2005 Mazda3s hatchack. Pros: good looking car, fun to drive, good output above 3000 rpm, good handling, does not lean much in corners, assembled in Japan, warranty 48 months. Cons: poor gas mileage with 2.3L engine (regardless if MT or AT), poor visibility, cupholder position for MT owners, low rpm torque is absent, soot on exhaust pipe, soot on sparkplugs, brake dust, dust & dirt & scratches shows easily on interior, windshield wiper control is too busy with too many functions (hard to turn the damn wipers off). Underdimensioned catalyzer for the 2.3L engine?

Best Features

fun to drive, suspension

Worst Features

Lean burning engine, better visibility in hatchback, smarter cupholder for those who choose NOT to have automatic transmission.
