No Go in the Snow

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


I had this car for three years before trading it in for a WRX. There were a couple of reasons for this. First, the WRX is much faster. Now the speed 3 is probably just as fast, but it's only offered in a hatchback, which I just don't like. Second, driving in the snow just plain stinks! From a dead stop I could barely get half way through the intersection before the light would turn red again! Tires make a little bit of difference, but not enough to install confidence while driving in the snow.

Best Features

Styling, Handling.

Worst Features

Make a turbo version of the sedan! Somehow make it an all season vehicle.
