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


I drive 1000k a week and finally I have
a car with great handling, comfort and
good mileage. Have averaged 29.0
(accurate) for the the last 20k. The
handling makes you feel like a
professional driver. Brakes are awsome,
but be careful of those tailgating
SUVs. Ergonomics are best of any car I
have owned and love the red interior
lighting. So far NO costs above tire
rotation and oil change. Fit, finish
and interior quality that of a much
more expensive car.
Mazda 3 just got a good and recommended
rating from the Insurance Institute for
frontal crash. Safety extras are the
collapsable brake pedal (in accidents),
side and curtain air bags.
What more could you want?

Best Features

Handling, braking and seating position. Engine torque in hills and highway cruising. Center console and dash layout. Interior lighting and headlight intensity. Very user friendly.

Worst Features

Headlights on timer that turn off after so many minutes. Doors that lock when car in motion.
