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


I just bought this car in may of this year. I had the Mazda 3 GT before this one but wanted to get the Turbo version. This car is very fast, and you have to get used to the torque steer when you are shifting. For some reason it always pulls me to the left. Again the car is great, you got your 4 doors with a hatch and seats that fold down. I had a problem with the stereo (volume) had to take it back to get it changed for a new one.

Best Features

Turbo, dash, seats, radio controls on the steering wheel, and rims.

Worst Features

6 speed shifter is very notchy. Very hard to put in gear especially going from 2nd to 3rd and from 5th to 6th. Should add paddle shifters like on the Mazda RX8. Heated seats and mirrors plus wider tires and a sunroof.
