    Mazda 3 — The speed it provide is the best in its class, the quality is better than other rivals, and it handles bloody well!! The dealership and the 5 year warranty is great, but I am regred not to buy a Focus! Overall it is a good car to drive in city and highway!!

    Pros: Best handling in its class, reasonable priced

    Cons: Little worse than European

    Zoom Zoom — I love this car. It's pretty fast, but I haven't been anwhere to be able to see just how fast... It handles great. Which it should, seeing as how it's a little four banger. It gets farily good gas mileage, but would probably get better if I didn't have a lead foot to go with the 5 speed. There's plenty of interior space for all my stuff, which is something I haven't had since my first car (which was a Buick regal- therefore, no fun factor)

    Pros: lots of space, but still small and manuoverable. fast for a N/A four banger. looks good

    Cons: ...5 speed and lead foot = bad for wallet.

    Mazda 3 — Well this was my first car and I loved every minute of it. I onyl can say I wish it had more power and a LSD. I found the handling with this car amazing especially after adding a rear sway bar. Oh and it was a hatch which started me on my love affair.

    Pros: Handling, Interior, Hatch!

    Cons: Power and lack of LSD

    Sporting Car That Just Wants To Race Its Way Around — Awesome car. Fell in love with it on the first test drive, and had to look for a reason to keep considering the other vehicles - I couldn't find one. The engine matches it perfectly, and it drives superbly. It actually handled better before the first or second service when they loosened up the suspension a little. Still great vehicle and couldn't dream of anything better.

    Pros: good gas mileage for a gas vehicle. Great performance and handling, drives like a feather on the wind, performs like a sports car.

    Cons: You can't see your gauges in daylight with the headlights on.
