2008 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased as a one owner vehicle with 34000 miles. A joy to drive with taut handling and smooth manual transmission. Light clutch that took a bit of getting used to. No issues with rattling or brakes. Prefer having a coolant gauge that the new models don't have. Comfortable seats, better than average stereo system and Ipod jack is a plus. Great acceleration in second and third gears and very stable at speed for a relatively light car. Mileage averages 27-28 combined city/highway. A bit noisy at speed but figure that is the sacrifice for a preferred stiffer suspension. Love it!

Favorite Features

Coolant gauge, electroluminescent gauges, Ipod jack, steering wheel controls, great looks, tight turning radius

Suggested Improvements

First gear is good for getting the vehicle rolling and that's it. Trunk release on key fob (but not a huge deal).
