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

Review

I enjoy this car more than any other that I have ever owned because it makes me smile no matter how and when I use it. I can putt putt to work and enjoy the burbling sound, effortless torque and 25 mpg. I can step on it for a Sunday drive and enjoy great acceleration, cornering and responsiveness (though the steering feel is a bit numb and effort a bit too high). It is especially fun in the winter! With aftermarket wheels and full snow tires, the steering lightens up, the ride softens, and pushing the limits is fun. Whether it caries the cross country skis, golf clubs, or family, this car provides inconspicuous pleasures. The clutch-transmission requires more technique than any other.

Favorite Features

Performance - thrift - usability. Sleeper appearance.

Suggested Improvements

The clutch-transmission is hard to work smoothly. The speedometer shows 0 to 60 mph with about a 60 degree arc.
