2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 New Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I did a ton of research and found a deal I could not pass up. The power for the money is amazing plus the convenience of 4 door with room it was hard to not to buy one. If you've read ALL of the reviews and research of this vehicle, you have heard it's a blast to drive. And it is. The suspension will greatly exaggerate any small pothole or bump. Especially at high speeds. I do love the power and getting it out on the freeway. In 3rd it really lets loose with the turbo and before you know your doing 90mph in 5th! One complaint - I have noticed a few rattles near the windshield area. Power, convenience of 4 doors and decent mpg was everything I was looking for.

Best Features

Power. Handling. Leather/alcantera seats. Large center console. Unassuming exterior. Leather wrap steering wheel. Room for 4. 18" wheels.

Worst Features

Bose stereo with the grand touring was a bit of a let down. few rattles and harsh ride when the are small potholes and or bumps. exhaust noise is a bit too much for me.
