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


I bought this car new w/the Grand Touring package and optional nav system. Wow! Mine is black mica. Body is aggressive yet tasteful, and the 18" wheels and larger spoiler distinguish this car. The controls are intuitive and there are many luxury features (i.e. auto a/c, 6 CD changer, Bose stereo, steering wheel controls, auxiliary input jack). The seats feel awesome and hug your body. The performance speaks for itself. Great handling, ridiculous amounts of torque, all around solid feel on the road. My only complaint is low gas mileage 16 city, 25 hwy. However, bottom line, I love the car.

Best Features

Leather seats w/mesh inserts to reduce stickyness in summer, red-lit instruments w/ blue backlight, the power, halogen headlights w/height control.

Worst Features

This car needs better gas mileage. It is a beast, but it's only a four cylinder. Everything else is great.
