Bang for the Buck - Knock on Wood
By Master D on


2005 Mazda 3 SP23 Special Edition 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Okay fellas ... It would be a wise investment for the safety of all to purchase a set of winter rims and tires as most of us above the 49th parallel understand that there are different compounds and characteristics of rubber that suit different temperatures and environments. The M3 has great curb appeal, well laid out interior - with excellent visibility ( the rear head rests can be removed easily and replaced as needed), excellent fuel mileage when driven decently, excellent handling and acceleration for highway passing. Overall one of the best improvements by a manufacturer in the economy/4cyl class - hope it holds true to my experiences so far ... knock on wood!

Best Features

cockpit,exterior,rear hatch versatility,automated lights/wipers,smooth shifter,agility,dealership expertise

Worst Features

improve to a lifetime warranty on all parts - including wear items! seriously might look at shedding a few pounds without compromising all the fantastic safety features.
