A Blast To Drive, Just As Long As You Don't Know Me, You Can Get One If You Find One... — Extremely fun to drive, feels fast, even though the stock 2.3L 4-cyl engine puts out 150 bhp and the 0-60mph is roughly 8 sec. The manual version of this car is the only way to go. This car is just a blast to drive, you can feel the road and the tight handling is just great.

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

Pros: Very fun to drive, Feels zippy

Cons: very light car, dangerous in bad weather (snow mainly)

A Pleasure To Own! — Performance- Acceleration is good for a 4-cyl, but the fact that it's FWD isn't the best. Braking is very good, and handling is fantastic. Even with a mediocre set of tires, the Mazda3 is practically glued to the road. Build Quality- There are some rattles, specifically "glovebox rattle", a common occurrence in Mazdas, I've heard. Easy to fix, but obnoxious nonetheless. Appearance- Interior is very tasteful. Build specifically for drivers. Good amount of interior space, too. The 2004-2009 front fascia is much more aggressive than the new, smiley 2010s. Cost- Great gas mpg, cheap maintenance. Overall, awesome. Fun Factor- This car is a blast. It will surprise you how great it handles on back-roads, and is very nimble.

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

Pros: Great handling, tasteful styling, affordable.

Cons: Delicate front end.

Mazda 3 — I loved my Mazda 3 before I left Hawaii and had to sell it.I was going to turn it into a race car.It had a Aerospeed Carbon Fiber Wing and Exhaust,I really could not afford to do to much to it at the time but I was planning on a Vortech Supercharger,Injen Intake,Koing Swap Rims And A Veilside Bodykit.This car was a blast to drive it great handling smooth shifting,clutch was smooth not stiff.I would recommended the Mazda 3 wanting a reliable and fun car that is also great on gas.I was getting 28-33 MPG.

Pros: Great Handling fun to drive

Cons: nothing really negative about the car all around pretty good

Good Car — It's a great compact car. very reliable, sporty behavior, good look. Not so economic, good handling. It's kind of fun to drive, i guess it's because it is new and sounds good with good handling. I like it just because it's a good average car.

Pros: reliable, sporty behavior, looks good, good handling

Cons: not that economic, too common
