I finally got my Mazdaspeed 3
By Sleepyspeed on
Vehicle2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewI absolutely love this car!! 263hp, 0-60 in about 5.6 sec, handles like it's on rails, and I'm getting almost 28 mpg and all for about $18k. It was a no brainer. This car will have you looking for a longer, twisty way home. And to top it all off, it looks like a little hatchback grocery getter. Can you say sleeper anyone? I even debadged it for that little extra stealth. Most people think it's just a Mazda 3 until you drop the hammer. Now I just smile and wave at the pulled over guys and their hopped up Hondas, WRXs, STIs, EVOs, GTIs etc., knowing I have a better performance to dollar ratio.
Best FeaturesDuh? The turbo! They don't call it a Mazda"speed" for nothing.
Worst FeaturesI actually like the torque steer and the stiff ride but more cushy drivers won't. Third gear is touchy but Mazda changed the ratio for the 2010. With an intake and a down pipe you may get another 30hp. I think the 2010 hood scoop and psycho Elmo smile were a move in the wrong direction.
