2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 New Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Alright so here is my review on the speed3. I have owned mine for about a year and a half now and I must say I'm extremely happy with it. You never forget that you are driving a Japanese tuner car. There is a lot of engine drone in the cabin and if you roll the windows down it gets even louder. I can take about every corner you can think of and still not lose control. It is front wheel drive so if you go up against a new WRX or EVO you will lose, but not by much. Not to mention this car brand new is about 5K less than those. For the money you get all kinds of fun. Anyone looking to by a practical, fast, stick shift car, the speed3 is your best bet.

Best Features

Race car suspension, engine hum RRRRRRR. Seats are awesome. Radio could be better but I have the sport model had I bought the touring I would most likely not complain.

Worst Features

A larger gas tank. They use the same 14.5 gallon tank which means you can only go about 300 miles max.
