2005 Mazda 323Review
Mazda 3 Sp — Performance- so so, lacks power because the car is heavy. Build quality - quite luxurious for a 1.6 sedan. ride comfort is really good. Appearance - solid, nice, great, eye-candy Cost of ownership - expensive to maintain due to high fuel consumption Fun - not very fun, but definitely comfortable.
Pros: Ride comfort is good, handling and steering is heavy & gives a very safe & steady feeling
Cons: High fuel consumption
