2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Long-Term Road Test

2010 Mazdaspeed 3: The More Desirable Hatch?

July 09, 2010


Last night I was all set to take the VW GTI home for the night when editor Josh Jacquot asked me to switch cars with him. Before I could raise an eyebrow at him, he said he had a good trade for me and actually preferred the car he had to the GTI. Yup, he had the Mazdaspeed 3. Why did he want to trade? Seems he was going to the airport and had to leave a car there during the time he was gone and apparently since we're short on cars, we needed to leave a car that wouldn't be missed.

I know! I couldn't believe that. I mean, I kinda like the GTI over the MS3. Anyway, turns out he needed to trade because the MS3 needs to be serviced soon and can't be left at the airport for a week. Heh.
