We drove our Mazdaspeed3 over 280 glorious miles of smiles home from the dealer, and loved every minute in our sweet, hot hatch! With the smooth powerful acceleration, superb handling, and surprisingly pleasant & quiet ride we ran out of highway long before we wanted too. Varying speed / RPM's all the way, we still got 25.52 MPG on the first tank of gas. Everyt ime I think about this car, (often, I confess), I just want to get the keys and "Zoom Zoom"!
Looks, performance, handling, ride, seat comfort / interior, build quality, the pure pleasure of driving this, and the rarity (you won't see many of these with just 5,000 available in the USA). This is easily the most fun car I've ever owned (and I'm 57!).
Please, Mazda, offer more exciting exterior colors.
