Goodbye Focus, Hello Mazda
By Jon on


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


I recently traded in my 2000 Ford Focus for a custom ordered Mazda 3. The difference is night & day. The 3 handles beautifully & the power is great. No problems merging on the freeway here in Los Angeles. The interior design & quality is what you would expect from a car costing twice as much. I especially love the blue backlight for the instrument cluster. Overall, this car turns heads & gives a satisfying feeling even when parked. Highly recommed it!

Best Features

Blue backlight on instrument cluster. Manually Tilting headlights (Xenon). Color (strato blue mica, gorgeous!). Interior build quality.

Worst Features

A slightly higher seat would be my preferrence, but thats from coming out of a Focus with a chair for a drivers seat.
