A Blast To Drive And An Excellent Trip Car — Performance of this car is absolutly amazing, the 2.3L Turbo produces 268hp/280tq this thing just flys and coupled to the 6-speed manual trans with the LSD puts the power down pretty good. Braking is excellent with the big rotors and calipers. city we get around 20-25mpg, highway we get 32-36mpg.

Turbo rush, passing power, handling.

Cons

Don't avoid... well worth owning.

Test Drive For Yourself. — Performance: Top notch turbo, six seconds to 60 mph without abusing clutch. Braking is incredible, watch to be rear ended. Handling is great, if slightly numb. Build quality is good, squeaks come from suspension during cold months below -10. Appearance and styling, great interior and enjoy understated looks. Cost of ownership so far has been good, tires are pricey, but worth it for performance factors. Winter tires a must. Fun factor is off the wall, such a raw car with the turbo that easily overpowers the front wheels from a dig. Passing power is superior to most cars on the road. Truly a highway car.However, the car is very practical with hatch and four doors. Six speed manual can be a bit off, and clutch is different than most cars, but to be expected with that sort of power.

One Bad Mazdaspeed. — The Mazdaspeed 3 has got to be one of the best sport compact, performance out of the box vehicle ever made. It is hands down the best bang for the buck. If you're looking for a performance sport compact, look no further.

Pros

Drives great, almost no turbo lag so its gets up and goes whenever you want it to. Comfortable to drive and handles well.

Cons

Not too much room in the back seats, and a relatively small trunk.

Surprisingly Quick — Great car, fast fun to drive and reliable. Great looking car and has the performance to match. Best part is just driving with the windows down and listening to the turbo as your head flies into the back of your seat.

Get It Now. — The only thing I'm worried about, is blowing my motor. It's amazing and I love it, so glad I bought it. I just hate all the stupid attention it gets sometimes. The acceleration is awesome and with a good set of coil-overs it takes turns like a champ!
