    Great Zippy Car. — This car will be followed by another Mazda 3 hatch back. It's a zippy little car on city streets and it can grab you speeding tickets on the highways. It's a small car, but it still holds it's own when it comes to cargo room. Great on gas, great on looks.

    Pros: Solid engine, solid handling.

    Cons: Can't find one.

    Shell's Mazda Sp23 — I love my car it looks sporty and it loves to be driven. The only thing bad is the room aspect, but other than that its a great car. The performance is suprising for a little 2.3, I havent had any big problems with it. But she gets the looks though.

    Pros: Great car to drive

    Cons: No cruise control

    Saved My Life — I loved this car, although I no longer have it. Great handling, performance and great on the fuel. It also saved my life as you can see. Was a fun car to drive. After the accident they rebuilt it and I never felt quite the same about driving it and traded it in. But I miss it.

    Pros: Sporty, nice looking and kept me alive

    Cons: not in one peice

    2004 Mazda Mazda3 S Hatchback — Back in 2004 I went looking for a 2 year old Honda, Toyota or new Hyundai, but after one test drive on of the Mazda 3, it was game over, and the cost was only a couple thousand more than those 2 year-old used competitors' cars. This car has been great, it's a joy to drive, gets good mileage, and I plan on keeping it until the wheels fall off.

    Pros: Has zoom zoom, great quality for the price, good mileage, looks great, haven't had a single problem in 4 years.

    Cons: Stock tires were terrible in snow, factory stereo doesn't have any way to plug-in MP3 players, air conditioner  is underwhelming

    My Car — go to cardomain.com to see more about my car. Great performance from a compact car w/o engine add-ons. Fun car to drive. Not a high maintenance car, and they hit a home run with the overall design. Probably will add a mazdaspeed 3 to my collection soon.

    Pros: Great performance from a compact car w/o engine add-ons. Fun car to drive.

    Cons: I dont like the rear view. The hatch door doesn't really follow the lines of the car.

    Excellent Commuter — I needed to switch to an automatic, but didn't want to give up the performance and control of a manual. The shifter on the Mazda3 gives me what I want. The fuel economy isn't as good as other cars this size, but frankly, part of my car budget is also my entertainment budget. Nuff said.

    Pros: Excellent handling.  Good performance.  Low maintenance costs.  Reasonable fuel economy (~26mpg with a lot of congested traffic).

    Cons: Outside mirrors fog over quickly.  Stiff suspension is noticeable after riding in someone else's luxowagon.

    Fun Litte Car. — It was my mothers car. I drove it to school alot when she wasnt working. Very reliable. Great stero for a stock car. Allthought if you were over 6 foot tall, the back seat wasnt the best only because your head would be touching the roof.

    Pros: Great handling and acceleration. 5 speed made it alot of fun. Great fuel economy.looked good for a japanese ford.

    Cons: Lack of trunk space. Tourque steer was bad at hard accelerations.
