Great Car — Good reliable car, great handling and performance for a 2.3L 16v engine. Better than I thought it would be for less than $16K. Poor mileage though. ~19 city / ~30 highway. 25.5 Combined. Mods are pretty expensive though. I also don't really like the quality of the paint.

Pros: Handling, Performance, Reliability

Cons: Mileage

Fun Everyday Car. —

This Mazda has been our reliable companion since my Sentra was totaled. I bought it because it was the most stylish, best performing car I could afford brand new. After about 55,000 miles, the only reliability issues I've had were minor annoyances related to my own modifications. Mazdas are known for their sharp driving dynamics, and this car is no exception. My Mazda3 does great on twisty roads, especially after equipping Mazdaspeed sport springs and dampers and W rated Kuhmo tires. The way it shifts, steers, and brakes far exceeds the standard for base price sedans. And because of my custom exhaust, everyone knows I'm coming when they hear the signature "BWAAAAAAR!" The Mazda3's styling, inside and out, is also a cut above other small cars. Everyone who rides in it comments about how nice the interior is. My only two issues with it, (and I'm being really picky here) are the lack of power, and that it sometimes experiences wheel hop when accelerating from a stop on wet pavement. So if you can afford it, buy a Mazdaspped3! I drive it pretty hard and it still gets 26mpg and has never needed major repair. It's fun to drive and it still carries my family and our stuff. We love our Mazda3!

Pros: Steering, suspension, interior and exterior styling, practicality.

Cons: No LSD.

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

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!
