2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda3 New Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have a love hate relationship with my 08 Mazdaspeed3.
I love how fast it is, but I hate how rough and loud it can be.
The suspension on it has been crap since I bought it new.
The valving/dampening is wrong on it.
It gets easily unsettled over speed pumps and rough roads.
Gas milage has been good over all considering how much power it has.
It does however require premium fuel.
More sounds suppression.
Better suspension setup.
Overall the model needs to be refined.
