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

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

Love The Car — Even though I bought it used the reliability of this car is remarkable the engine response is great and fuel economy is good compared to others in the market is equal.

Pros: The car price compared to the market and available options.

Cons: Limited service locations in PR compared to the states they also offer you the courtesy car in US GA not available in PR.

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.
