2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I love the power, the handling, and the overall package. The car drives extremely well. The only issues after 1500 miles have to do with the carbon from the tailpipes that ends up all over the rear of the car. I have owned several turbo cars and carbon build up on the pipes is common. This seems excessive. The car emits a lot of smoke on hard acceleration in 2nd and 3rd gear. Overall, it is the best value for the money in terms of horsepower and quality.
Tech package is great, bluetooth system works very well.
Needs a temp gauge and the boost gauge. Bring back HID lamps, auto lamps, rain sensing wipers, and make homelink standard. Solve the excessive carbon buildup. Seems like it runs lean to cause so much build up. Radio stations suffer when connected to bluetooth.
