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


I needed a daily driver so I could keep my sports car for the weekend. I didn't really expect the daily driver to be as much fun as the Mazda 3 is. I do believe it's not only the best compact sedan to come out recently, but one of the best overall. I've always been an auto enthusiast so I'm quite picky when I test drive a vehicle. With better than expected acceleration, great gas mileage, low costing insurance, clean looking interior, attractive exterior, you won't do better near this price point.

Best Features

The metallic paint (winning blue in my case), gives the car a more quality appearance. I like the gauges and the quick 5 MT acceleration the most.

Worst Features

This Mazda 3 has already exceeded my expectations so to list anything other than really minor gripes would be a waste of time. How can you really improve a car that is this good at this price?
