BEST car in class
By Sergio on


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


Easily best car for the money (reliability to be seen). The car is very quick with excellent handling with 205/55R16 tires. I opted for the 2.0 for the mileage (28 MPG city driving on 1700 miles). Very nice and roomy interior. I will echo the complaints about the weak A/C, and the remote trunk opening, but they are not show stoppers. Seats are a little hard and the doors do not auto-lock when the car is started.

Best Features

Handling and power for its class. Mileage. Radio controls on steering wheel. Just feels like a much more expensive car.

Worst Features

Make the doors lock when the engine starts (maybe mine has a problem). Change brake pad vendor as they make a lot of dust. Cooler A/C and I'll agree with some people on the radio improvements as it is very hard to get an aftermarket radio with the design it has.
