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


Bought this car in June 08, loved every mile i drove behind the wheel sing its praises to all my family and friend. Until winter of 08 and it snowed. This is by far the worst front wheel drive car I have ever owned or driven in any type of slippery condition. The anti lock brakes are always on and off at every stop and go situation as wheels spin out of control. I love this car in good dry weather, but this is not a car for upstate NY. I spent $900 for snow tires, didn't make any change in performance or handling. This car will not make it to next winter of 09.

Best Features

Heated leather seats. Cool auto lights on/off and wipers. Great Bose system

Worst Features

I hate that Mazda can't and won't make a pair of mud flaps/guards to fit this car. We don't all live in sunny CA
