Park it in the Winter
By mike volsch on


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


I have enjoyed this car throughout the summer and fall months. Gas mileage is great, fit and finish are of good quality and it looks great. But I have found its downfall. Without a doubt this is the worst car I have ever driven in ice/snow. If a hill gets in your way you better better have up a good head of steam because if you don't you will be going backwards. A set of snow tires on it may help but without them this car goes to the garage until the sun shines and the grass is green.

Best Features

Handling, fuel mileage, good looks, versatility, 5-speed.

Worst Features

Get it to go in snow.
