Review
Given that I'm still within the break-in period (600 miles per Mazda), it's easy to feel the cars power at low rpms. My silver MS3 looks better in person than what I could imagine from the photos. The sport seat height and lumbar adjustments, along with the telescoping / tilt steering wheel provide a perfect driving position. Visibility is very good. The exhaust is louder than I expected, but it fits this sports car. If you're into bargain priced speed, 4 doors, practicality and quality, this is it. Competitors? WRX- ugly & fewer features. GTI- poor quality. Civic Si- poor torque & needs high rpms. Accord 6 speed- wait a year for the re-design, but it costs more. Lexus 250- $$ and too slow.
Favorite Features
The driving experience: position, sport seat, view, handling, torque, sound and 6 speed shifter. Good looks and unique 18" wheels. Roomy rear seats; very good leg and head room. Bargain price for features & performance. Four doors. Doesn't look like a boys car, e.g. WRX STI and EVO. Built in Japan.
Suggested Improvements
The Bose stereo needs more base. Owner maintenance (i.e. oil changes) should be easier. Sirius radio option is too expensive.
