Really Diggin it! My 3 Rocks!

2004 Mazda 3 i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Ok, 1st, bad stuff ... power steering is noisy, tires appear to wear quickly, doesn't get the gas mileage claimed, (28.5 hwy on recent trip), the a/c doesn't get super cold (tint the glass, fixed!), the seat material gives off tangles as it wears. But as far as everything else, I love it! I had a Pathfinder that got 14mpg, even at 28mpg is saving me tons of cash. It's peppy, handles great, looks good, quiet enough interior and with a new stereo, it's got good tunes too. The first owner had upgraded a few things, like 16" wheels and spoiler. The seat belt noise will drive you crazy though. Overall, I love it. May put a sunroof in, maybe aftermarket speed parts. All in all, it's great!

Best Features

Handling, looks. BTW, people complain about the lack of a handle to open the trunk? When you pop the latch, there's more than enough room to get your fingers underneath to grab it.

Worst Features

Seat belt noise, fess up to lower mpg, colder a/c.
