    Zoomzoom Mazda — i love a my car, cause it's all mine , paided in full. Performance of this is amazing , it has great accerleration for overpassing.i Have lots of fun driving my mazda 3 sedan.The only down fall is that if you buy it as a family car the baby capsules down fit in the car with out pushing the front passengers seat right forward. that is stupid.

    Pros: great to drive on the highway

    Cons: not alot of space in the back when u have baby capsule.

    2005 Mazda 3 Sp23 — This car has been great- Flawless reliability, great gas mileage, fun to drive with excellent performance. I have the five speed, and the gearbox is tight and precise. My sister has a manual tranny Acura TL, and this gearbox puts the Acura to SHAME!!. Best of all, the five-door hatch configuration is so roomy & useful. Luvit!

    Pros: Everything except-

    Cons: wind & road noise

    Mazda Sp 23 — CBY_355 is velocity red in colour and a fabulous car. She will be 3 years old in October and she has done 65,000 kilometers in that time. Performance is outstanding. Accelerates well, especially going up hill, abs brakes and handles well in all road conitions. Fuel consumption is good, would be better if fuels prices came down!! LOL. Great car to own, heaps of fun to drive! Highly recommend car to have!!

    Pros: It is Red!!!

    Cons: Gets dirty!!

    Mazda 3 Gt — Sweet and smooth a silk. Great on gas compared to my 2001 Sunflower I use to own. Mods currently on my car. 18" RX-8 wheels, lowered for better a look and handling, Mazdaspeed 3 exhaust, LED lights all around except headlights are HID`s. I love my car so much I would recommend any to buy one.

    Pros: Everything.

    Cons: Not as fast as I would like.

    Mazda 3 — The car drives wonderfully smooth, the braking and handling are also great! Very well built car, no problems so far. I love the design of the Mazda 3, has the proportions of a coupe but it's a sedan. Good on fuel and low maintenance. Very fun car to drive, enough power for a driver like me!

    Pros: Wicked car, best choice I ever made!

    Cons: Maybe abit more power!

    Good Car, Good Price — he don't have electric glass and don't have cruise control and i like the performance of this little car. I like the look low profile and at the same time i don't like this same ``low profile`` because my car scratch bumper at many place. In general i like this car and i recommended it.

    Pros: Sportive look

    Cons: low profile

    Fun To Drive, Built Like A Straw Hut — Fun to drive, handles great, steering feedback is pure mazda and amongst the best in the industry. Acceleration, braking, and cornering are top of it's class. Build quality is lackluster, rattles galore and I'm on my 2nd engine. Not a tuner car by any means, suspension geometry cannot be tampered with unless you're really willing to spend big $$$ on coilovers, arms and links.

    Pros: Steering and handling

    Cons: Intake noise is nasty, build quality reminds me of a Lada
