Best Car I've Ever Owned — This has been a really great car. I have had no issues with it for the 40k miles I have owned it. I performs extremely well....better than I had expected. Just a joy to drive. Put the back seats down and the ample cargo space allows me to fit skateboards, guitars, amps, work equipment, etc....pretty much has the space of an SUV. Me, my girlfriend and the three kids ride in it comfortably every day. Just a great all-around car. Wish I could've afforded to keep it.

Mazdaspeed3 Review-2007 — Performance- The first time I drove this car it blew my mind at how much power it has. The designers at Mazda made an awesome car with so much potential, I mean they even left the OBD-II port open, as if they want you to tune it!!! Build Quality- The car (mainly the engine and transmission are bullet proof)( no, not literally bullet proof), just built very well. The only major repair (knock on wood) that I have had to do was the VVT (variable Valve Timing) actuator. This caused a very loud noise on (cold) start ups. If this wasn't fixed it could cause the engine to throw the timing chain (well you know the rest after that) (new engine etc $$$$)- cheap fix coast around 800$ (only paid 300, the dealer picked up the rest) Note: if your 2007 or 2008 is doing this on start up GET IT FIXED ASAP!!! Appearance- I love the looks of this car, its a "Hot" hatch that has really nice lines and doesn't smile like (genpus, gen 2 for you noobs) everywhere you take it. Cost of ownership- cheap, keep up the general maintenance (oil changes etc) and its a cheap car to own. Gas mileage is around 25 highway 17 or so in city (mine is usually a bit worse because I really like to get on it (especially on on ramps) the turbo sound is awesome (once you replace the factory (plastic piece of crap) other then that a very cheap car to own. Fun Factor- Yes!! Its a very fun car to drive. It corners like non other (it feels like your brain is being ripped out through your ears)(like any other Mazda) and (since I'm in to tuning) very affordable aftermarket parts and lots of variety to choose from.

Cool — Needed a car with better gas mileage and some pick up and go when needed. This 4 cylinder with a turbo does the trick. Only had this car for 2 months so we haven't really had any problems with it!

Buy One! — I love my speed. They did a fine job with the GT Version. Its luxurious for its price. The was pretty fast stock, and with the adding of an intake, custom dual exhaust and the AP, its a whole new car. Better than the Evos and STI's. The car looks amazing. I have it all blacked out and red calipers around. I get compliments everywhere i go with it. Way better than my 99 GS-T Spyder eclipse. I give this a 9.3 out of ten on fun. Needs a better launch, but i did keep up with a 08Z 0-60. Other than that this car is the funnest toy ive ever had

Great, Fun Car For The Price — I really do love this car. It's fast, corners well and is comfortable on road trips. The interior is simple, but sharp. It isn't that good in the snow, so winter tires are a must. All wheel drive would make this car perfect.

Best Bang For The Buck Period! — This car is an all-around pleaser. It has awesome acceleration, handling, braking, utility, and yes, even fuel economy! The computer in the car is saying that I've averaged 29.8 MPG. Granted, most of my driving is highway but that is just awesome considering the performance of this vehicle.

The Best Car For The Money — This car is great! Superb acceleration (0-60 in 5.9 and 1/4 in 13.9), rides on rails, and stops on a dime. Build quality is amazing with Bose speakers, HID headlights, LED taillights, leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, and many more features. It is a sleeper to most, but those who know cars know that this baby moves! The bright red is a real head turner and the 18 inch wheels look very nice. Gas mileage is rated at 20 city and 28 highway. This car is a blast to drive!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Two Years Later Its Still The Best Deal In Pocket Rockets Around — This car is pretty much the best combination of performance and utility you can find for the price, at least it was in 2007. The interior is designed to a standard expected in cars in the near-luxury segment. It is very fun to drive for a front-wheel drive car.
