    My Car Is Good — I like my car bc it goes, i rarely have any issues with it. Very reliable. I wish it got better gas mileage. It's a good car to have with a manual transmission. I have driven one with auto tranny, that was fun too.

    Pros: It's cute

    Cons: I don't get to drive it ebough

    The Blue Beast — This was my first car it had lots done to it. And it remained drivable despite some changes. It was everything I wanted in a car I hope to maybe have another car like this was. It can't be replaced but can be remembered.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: ...

    My Red Mazda3 — I got this car after wrecking my old 3 (thanks to insurance). It is fully loaded with some minor scratches and little dings. Gets me around comfortably and can be quite fun. I got one again cause I like this car a lot has a lot of good things going for it.

    Pros: the way the interior is setup. its cornering is good and wont kill a good driver

    Cons: I have a failed motor mount and i had to replace the tranny oil cause the old stuff was crap

    My Car — I can park it, what more do I need ! She is good on fuel, handles well and has a lot of space. Seats fold down either 1 or 2 or all 3 of them in back. I feel safe in her.

    Pros: I love to drive it.

    Cons: My son keeps borrowing it!

    Awesome Car — I absolutely loved it and would love to own one again, it had great performance. The handling was great. Great buy for the price I paid. I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a relatively cheap car but the value is worth it. Just awesome. Get it in black!

    Pros: great preformance

    Cons: colour

    Mazda3 — Excellent handling car (especially after lowering it an inch and a half). Lacks some power which Mazda made up for with the Mazdaspeed version. Compared to a Vibe which I have spent a lot of time in, it is sportier, more powerful and again better handling. Some people complain about road noise, but I don't notice it. Excellent fuel efficiency when driven properly. Great car for the price.

    Pros: Pretty much everything

    Cons: Could use an extra 20-30 hp

    3 Is The Charm — I bought this car at Carmax in January. It was a black 2.3 with a 5 speed manual. loaded and lots of fun to look at. got behind the whell I was in love. It wasn't hard to see why Mazda always markets their things with "zoom-zoom" you punched the throttle and it went. Now I can't say how fast I got it up to a couple times "cough120cough" No matter how you drove it, it seemed to want more and be comfortable. It never guzzeled gas either it just sipped at the tank. I think the estimates were off on MPG as I often found my calculator reading 30+ even in more city then highway mixed driving. If your a fan of hot hatch...try and 3 and tell me I'm wrong.

    Pros: fast, fun, and gas friendly.

    Cons: I WANT IT BACK!!!!!!
