Even after 8 months I still can't really find anything that I don't love about this car. It's fast, and fun to drive while being economical and roomy. It's almost like being in a small suv size wise, but with the heart of a racer. All of my friends and family are impressed with it, and people in parking lots have stopped to ask me questions about it. My brother actually purchased his 2008 pearl white one yesterday. We now have a family of Mazda Speed3s.
It's in the name. Speed. It's fast. It gets me there, and quickly.
The stuff in the back. The jack and tire iron rattle. Have to do something about that, it drives me crazy.
