Mazda 3s GT Hatch is fun
By RS on


2008 Mazda 3 New s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


I have enjoyed the car for 5 months and over 7000 miles. On a 7 hour drive the car proved comfortable and peppy. Fitted heated side view mirrors. Overall mpg 21-26, which is okay. The car feels steady on highways - does not sway. Overall a very good car. Mazda should shorten the rear bumper depth and may be improve trunk space or the rear seat space by a few more inches.

Best Features

Looks, style, front seat comfort, Bose sound, power driver seat, peppy driving, 5spd AT, tilt & adjustable steering, rain sensing wipers, HID lamps, reasonable trunk space, 5" GPS screen.

Worst Features

Heated side mirrors must be std., GPS should be programmable while moving, need bluetooth phone interface, power passenger seat, seat heaters with automatic cutoff, one-switch operation for sunroof, rear middle seat belt placement awkward, some of the plastic surface scuff easily
