2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda3 New Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Vehicle only three months old but have found 0 build problems. I am 62 years old, so probably don't fit the 'normal' buying profile. I don't care! This car is a true hoot to drive. Goes like a bat and at this price point, it's a steal. Very decent ride and the performance tires REALLY grip the road in fast turns. No matter they will probably only last 15,000 miles.
27.3 mpg honest overall mileage with only 3,000 miles on car. Performance is what I like best.
Somewhat minor complaint but this car needs a heads up display for the speed. The instruments are crammed to gether and it is difficult to read the speed at a glance. Also, Mazda does not make a turbo timer for it. I bought a $5.99 timer and it does the job.
