2005 Mazda 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Great handling, excellent brakes. Steering feel excellent -- you steer, it turns! Very good ride even with 50 series tires. No ABS brakes, excellent modulation. I got the auto transmission; spouse request. Very good from a stoplight. Seats and steering wheel infinitely adjustable and comfortable. Stereo 6 CD changer very nice. very little brake dust on wheels. Glove box huge! My golf clubs will fit in back. Rear seats tight -- exit/egress lacking. I would buy again!

Best Features

Great styling, interior materials rich looking. Handling best in class. This car is feature packed.

Worst Features

Air conditioning weak, body bumpers flimsy. Gas mileage 22mpg if I'm naughty -- with manual transmission probably better.
