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


Best driving front wheel drive auto period. Great handling, performance and braking. Two years without the first problem. Have comfortably driven 600 mile days and mileage has ranged between 18mpg city and 31 highway. Ride is firm but not uncomfortable for this 70 plus senior. Traded the car in Feb10 due to lack of luggage space for 3 or more.

Best Features

Performance, styling, 6 speed transmission and reliability.

Worst Features

Adjustable headlights (as on 2010 Mazda5). Different OEM tires. Didn"t like the Bridgstones due to noise and rapid wear. Car is great for two but lacks luggage space for 3 or 4.
