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


Moving from the world of RWD V8's, I decided I wanted something smaller, better handling for my daily driver. The 3 wagon is a dream, as in its much better than I ever expected. The stick is one of the smoothest I've ever used. The handling is a blast (get rid of the stock Goodyears immediately, they are garbage) and it can haul all the stuff I need for a cross country trip. The build is up there also, I hit a pothole so hard in this thing that I thought the A arm was coming through the front fender, but it didnt. And gas mileage, I routinely get 26 with all city driving (a lot of it heavy footed) and with less than 1000 miles on the odo, I got 37+. EXCELLENT CAR

Best Features

The 5 speed, the interior, exterior, build of the car.

Worst Features

A little more low end torque. A more scuff resistant door panel and easier to clean dash. Brighter dash. Other than that, this thing is perfect for the money.
