Mazda 3s 5 door BEST in class!


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


Though I have only owned the car 3 weeks, I am astounded at the quality, performance, styling and value of this car. The car i9s tight and rigid, no rattles, and exits the freeway FLAT. The automatic has a manual shift "tip" option that's great! The 2.3 is the same engine in the Mazda 6 and really MAKES THIS CAR MOVE. This is a sporty, quick, tight car... not an econobox. I agree with the consumer and car magazines.. this car is best in class! Any downsides? Well the car has 17inch low profile tires, so you do feel and hear the road somewhat... but personally I like the feedback and response the tires give me.

Best Features

Automatic with manual "tip" shifting. Exterior styling... STYLE STYLE STYLE!! 5 Door convenient, elegant and roomy Quick engine/transmission and a responsive, tight Volvo S40 Chassis

Worst Features

A little less road noise. My area has freeways damaged by studded tires... this causes roadnoise with the low profile 17 inch tires.
