SP23 is a Great Start

2005 Mazda 3 SP23 Special Edition 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned my SP23 Mazda 3 Hatchback now for seven months. It was the most difficult new car I ever purchased because it is a limited edition model. With that said it was worth the effort and time. My Mazda dealer was great and worked very hard to secure this car. It is a very fun car to drive but could use more horsepower. The carpets are real low grade and that was a surprise. The Bose sound system is awesome and the standard features of this car are worth the price of the car. Best value for the dollar. Plenty of storage space and with the split rear seats you have plenty of options. Need to make available more choices of of exterior colors.

Best Features

Manual transmission. Bose sound system. SP23 standard features. Looks and style of this hatchback are awesome.

Worst Features

Carpet through out this car are cheap and low grade. Offer more exterior colors. More horsepower.
