Mazda 3: $21,000 worth of fun
By StukaFox on
2005 Mazda Mazda3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Dropped $21,000 cash, not a BIT of regret: car is surprisingly peppy; suspension like a racecar; snaps to attention when right pedal is pressed. Expecting laggy and plastic, got a car out of a videogame. No bad habits on the road; does what it's told without complaint. Visibility like a F-16's cockpit. Interior is luxury-car roomy. Cargo space that would make some SUV's blush. Piled on leather, airbag package, and ABS, still only came to $21,000 out the door. Was never going to buy import, Mazda 3 totally changed my mind. Detroit, wake up: Japan is about to eat your lunch again!
Favorite Features
The solid, sporty handling. Would never expect this level of performance at this price!
Suggested Improvements
First gear is too short; second too long. Seatbacks block view on driver's blindspot. Wheel is uncomfortable at first; needs to be held like a performance car's wheel.
