2007 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I owned my 3 from brand new until a Mercury Sable tagged it in the right front strut tower and put an end to it at 99,000 miles. In that time it went to the dealer once when the telescoping wheel tightening nut came loose. That was it. Averaged 30-34 mpg of fun driving and I'm going to miss it.

Best Features

Great shifter, steering wheel, lots of storage for a small car. Torque steer was minimal, the 2.3 was smooth and relatively quiet and the cost to own was extremely low. Just a fun car to own.

Worst Features

Carpet is very thin, black interior almost impossible to keep clean. The clutch engagement is very high in the pedal travel and tire selection really affects the handling. The stock Toyos made it feel like it was on rails, the replacement Pirellis like it was waddling. The Toyos were horrible in the rain so tire selection is important.
