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


I was captivated by the exterior of the Mazda3 hatch. I had been to Europe before purchasing the car and I liked the the look of many cars there. The Mazda3 looked almost European. The power windows and keyless entry float my boat. I'm not used to luxury. The disappointing 24 mpg city surprised me. My very old Toyota Corolla did better than that. The suspension is a letdown. When taking turns I don't feel the tightness of a former Honda Accord. It's very similar to the Corolla. The price at $18,300 is reasonable. "Winning Blue" is an eye popper.

Best Features

Changing radio stations and playing CDs from the steering wheel. Great pick-up. Several ideal storage locations for the driver.

Worst Features

Front grill is very low. You'll be scraping the plastic lip pretty soon.
