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

Review

Got a good model year-end deal on a silver 3 with leather and moon roof. Very happy with car. Everything seems solid and well thought out. Very quick, handling is precise and firm. Not sure about low-profile tires that came on car - they seem a bit noisy and not sure how much they add to performance. Otherwise, car is very quiet, with just the right amount of auditory feedback from engine. Slight flaw on placement of brake and accelerator pedals - a bit too close for large feet. Good for 'heel and toe' but it's easy to hit the brake when you're doing normal shifting. Taking some getting used to. Mileage has been less than expected, but the car and I are still getting to know one another.

Performance, performance, performance.
