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

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.
