It Just Grows on Ya!
By Will L. on


2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I have owned only Taurus SHO's for the past 17 years - all manuals. My last one just turned 190k as I went researching for a honorable replacement. It surely wouldn't be the new SHO as it was released w/o a stick and way too much $$$. As I went to different review and "best of" sites the MS3 was always ending up in the top two spots. Anyway ended up test driving the WRX (not as refined inside + more $) and the GTI (more $ and slower than the MS3). Since I have owned it (the MS3) I have to admit it just gets better every time I drive it - even with that goofy smile in the front. I did have to get used to a turbocharged car as far as shift points and turbo lag but all are quite manageable.

Favorite Features

Push button start (just like Bat mobile in the TV series), Bluetooth (phone right through the speakers), Nav - it instantly knows where you are and works not like aftermarket navs that seem to take an eternity to locate, Keyless entry - touch the key fob once all day (put in pocket), fold-down rear seat

Suggested Improvements

Performance car should have temp, oil & batt guages. Gas and boost gauges should be analog. Power really flattens @ high RPM. If you want to get really picky offer a sunroof, an "all windows up" button and make white one of the exterior color choices
