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


From the time I received the email reply
from my dealer to this review, 1 month
after driving it home, I've enjoyed
every minute owning my Mazda3s! For well
under $20,000 I bought a car that
performs, looks and feels like a $25,000
luxury car! It's fast enough to satisfy
my demanding driving style, it's
contruction is solid to the point that I
feel isolated from the outside on 90% of
all roads and the upgradability of the
car easily matches that of any Honda!
The driving environment is encapsulating
while nowhere near suffocating and my
5'8" frame feels right at home in the
driver's seat! The only thing I regret
is not putting down the money sooner!

Best Features

- Styling: exterior and interior, the car offers looks far more attractive than your ho-hum average japanese compact car! - Driving Environment: I've never felt uncomfortable in the driver's seat, finding a comfortable seat position is easy. - Aftermarket support: growing quickly! HID, engine, etc.

Worst Features

- Paint: while all the colors are great, I find that the paint chips easier than I'd prefer.
