The Wife's Toy
By Chris' Review on
Vehicle
2005 Mazda Mazda3 s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Overall this is a very good car. We had some issues early with the dealership and the rear spoiler (color). The car just went into the shop for a leak in the transmission. The dealership says there was a leak at the temperature sensor that was not mounted flush. This leak was discovered at 3,500 miles at a local mechanic -- not the dealer. The car does plow in corners when speed is applied. My wife loves the car and its "pep." The fuel economy is a little weaker than I thought it might be. It also might be our lead foot as well.
Favorite Features
The controls on the steering wheel. The car's ability to get up and moving when you hit the gas. The illuminated gauges and the center console give the car appeal and set it apart from its competition.
Suggested Improvements
Hopefully there will be no more issues with the transmission. The rear pads do have a tendency to emit more dust than the front.
