2005 Mazda 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Car handles great and has some nice options that are included. Power is lacking and intermittent - not what I expected from a 2.3L engine. Posted mpg on the 2.3 wagon is a joke - I average 20mpg. A few issues and the Mazda dealers don't want to deal with it and Mazda Customer Care line is useless also.
Handling. Controls. Space.
Mpg is very poor. Power is very poor. Mazda customer service is very poor.
