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


The vehicle is razzy and fun to drive. I am a little over 60, but enjoy the crisp and positive handing, and response I get from the 160 h.p. engine. The interior as well as the exterior is easy to maintain. Basically although a sedan, it handles like a sports car. Sticks like glue on the interstates. I am often questioned; "What kind of car is that" from various age groups. The only negative I can think of is road noise, which may be do to tire selection. Have had no problems what so ever. Other than oil changes and a tire rotation, I've had no problems. I'd buy another one.

Best Features

I appreciate it's overall appearance. It has a special look. I like the response from the 2.3L. They have it right "zoom zoom". And of course the handling. Controls at my finger.

Worst Features

Perhaps the use of noise reduction materials in/or arround the passenger dept, and somehow reduce the noise associated with the choice of rubber.
