2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda3 Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
For the price, the car is amazing. Fun to drive, looks great and decent economy for the power it puts out. Shifter needs to guided through the gears (i.e., vague). I have driven many worse manual transmission cars. Don't let this aspect be a deterrent. Power comes on quickly around the 3K RPM mark. It's a rush when you nail the pedal, hang on to the wheel. Although the gearing is "close ratio", you can be comfortable leaving it in gear around town and not shifting much. The car has plenty of power to get moving even in low RPM ranges.
Favorite Features
Seats: good comfort in this price range. Steering: very direct at all speeds, good feel. Space: the cabin has great head and legroom, with the seats down you can fit quite a bit. Engine: absolutely a gem.
Suggested Improvements
Shifter is decent, but the feel is not the best I have driven. Power is limited in the first two gears, you do notice this but it's not like this will ruin your day.
