Excellent car but....

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


The 3 is a fun car to drive; call it a BMW 3 on the cheap. Mine has the 4 speed auto, which while detracting a bit in the fun-to-drive area, still is a blast to drive. Steering is tight, handling is crisp. It's just right. The main gripe is the pathetic air conditioner. That is one known issue with this car, and so far Mazda hasn't really addressed it properly. Outside of that, the fuel mileage could be better for its size.

Best Features

Suspension, steering feel, revvy engine, overall fun-to-drive character.

Worst Features

A decent air conditioner, 5 speed automatic, better fuel mileage.
