2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3: Butterface

August 11, 2010

I've driven our Mazdaspeed 3 for the last two nights and it's a blast to drive. I don't think anybody can argue that. It's got awesome acceleration, a great engine note and it handles like it's on rails.

Butterface.

Yeah, everyone has a butterface story. Lord knows some of them are pretty cruel. This is another one to add to the lore. It's a lot of fun, great personality, buuuuuuuuuuut.... Combine the mug only a mother can love with the funky fabric I'm not a fan of, the useless small navigation screen Ed Hellwig recently blogged about, and I wonder if this is such a great car.

Can you overlook it's looks and some funkiness? Would you drop your money on this car?
