2005 Mazda 3 i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have only had my car for a week, but I've never enjoyed driving more! I was looking at a Mini initially, but it was just a little out of my price range. I then found this online, and chose it because of its looks. I'm telling you, Mazda doesn't play when they say Zoom- Zoom! Just to give you a taste of how awesome the gas mileage is: it was filled up and driven 250 miles with the air conditioning on the entire time, and it still had half a tank left in it! Don't take the price for this "beginner" model for granted; you get a lot of bang for your buck. With gas prices as high as they are, I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a car that has plenty of horsepower and is on a tight budget....

Best Features

Handling is light, balanced, and very, very sure--it will go where it's pointed; cloth interior; 400-500 miles on a tank of gas; lots of room for a small car; great trunk space & interior storage space for small items; 16" alloys are beautiful; looks off-the- chain in black....

Worst Features

Daytime Running Lights should be included on all models; needs a car adapter/auxiliary input for things like iPods or CD players; set your own intermittent wiper time
