    Blue On Black, Sweet! — It's smooth on the turns, even at higher speeds. It's quick. It shifts funny if you try to shift it around 3rpm's, but if you wait till around 5rpm's it's really smooth. The interior is sweet too. Blue on black. The stereo has illuminating options, it's pretty sweet.

    Pros: Handles well, Speed is good, and easy upkeep

    Cons: N/A

    . — sporty and reliable runs good. The body panels seems todent easily though. Lots of door dings. Gets good gas milagle 34 mpg. Changing the oil is a PITA. I would reccomend this car to my friends. Go out and buy

    My New Car — i just love my new car. It's a well build car. It's got great handling and because it's a hatchback, it's got a reasonably large booth. The passengers in the back have got plenty of room and allround it's quite a fun car to drive

    Pros: Roomy

    Cons: Acceleration can always be better

    Mazda3 — It's a pretty good car. I like small performance sedans and this one fits the bill. I wish it were 200lbs lighter, had more camber adjustablility and had more supportive seats. I would consider buying another one, but only if the next genneration is lighter and has 7 inch wide wheels instead of 6.5 inches wide...

    Pros: Fun car, reliable and economical.

    Cons: Needs to weigh less and have a wider stock wheel.

    Lucky#3 — I love this car! the only thing that needs to be changed is there always needs to be more horsepower. There is no such thing as too much HP. Parts are a little more expensive than other cars but you can bet that they'll be working in 10 years. Only the best performance parts for this car and there is Mazdaspeed who makes their own hi preformance parts like a cat back system, short shifter, and race clutch.

    Pros: space, styling, preformance

    Cons: expensive

    Zoom Zoom Zoom — I think this car has almost all good features than bad ones. It is what it is but does it better than it's rivals. Performance is great, really fun car to drive (specially with manual transmission), interior quality is superb. Exterior styling is good from certain angles specially the rear but not the front "it's just me". Mechanical quality is average if not poor. I highly recommend extended warranty on this vehicle you might need it. Major fixes have included; new engine mounts, new intake manifold, new belts that Mazda will claim they are good for the life of the car. This has all happen over 80k miles.

    Pros: Fun factor , acceleration, braking, handling

    Cons: Weak AC, build quality

    Sporty Sedan — For its class it has lots of features that you dont find for most mid size sedans. Has a stylish look that cant be denied. This car loves corners! Despite its ties to the ford focus this car comes with more then you'd expect, its peppy too. zoom zoom we're everywhere!

    Pros: Stylish

    Cons: Could use a turbo

    No More Mazdas — This was a great car for the first 6 months. Then a wheel bearing went and we had to wait 2 weeks to have it shipped in. The following winter, the ice ripped the plastic skid plate off and destroyed the undercarrage. This summer, the wheel bearing I replaced last year went again as well as the other one and we needed an emergency brake cable. Waited 3 weeks for the bearings and a month and a half for the ebrake. The paint is peeling off and is chipping, carpet no longer fastened to the floor. Hard on gas. Seats get stained very easy. Need to take to dealer to even have lights replaced. But... it handles good. You will be cramped if someone is sitting behind you. NO MORE MAZDAS!!!

    Pros: handling

    Cons: paint, finish, parts, reliability, ride hight, interior space, fabric on seats, you name it!!!

    Love It! — I absolutely love the gas mileage, which is almost 30 mpg. It's not your boring "mommy" vehicle, it gets up a GOES! Mazda is one of the fastest growing brands. So far I have nothing to complain about on the maintaining it. It has an awesome color, which is only made for 2004-2005 models. We will buy another Mazda when this one wears out.

    Pros: gas mileage, colors to choose from,

    Cons: rides a little rough, but its the nature of a small car
