    Mazda Sp23 — Nice looking car a little bit underdone for performance should have got the MPS version. great to drive especially on country trips has the bigger motor 2.3 litre and only average fuel consumption but all round very solid safe and reliable car....a bit boring...I've found its a bit fragile on the body panels easily dented.

    Pros: well finished, good road holding, smooth and quiet looks good

    Cons: a bit underpowered tinny panels

    I Like My Car ... — This car was kind of an impulse decision made in the light of rising gas prices, but I really can't complain. It's a blast to drive and still gets 25 mpg even when I drive like Tony Stewart. The only quibbles are really my own fault ... I picked one without a sunroof or a manual transmission

    Pros: Almost everything

    Cons: Automatic transmission, no sunroof (or turbo...)

    Like My Mazda 3, Not Love Just Like. — Lots of pickup for a small car. Handles very well, very sporty. Gas mileage can be good if you drive it reasonably. Interior only available in black when I bought it, so it gets a little warm in there. This car is very fun to drive. Would recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet fun car.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Mazda 3 Ts2 Uk Model — This Motor is spot on.wish we got the 2.0 Sport though. The 1.6 lacks top end power but is reasonable off the mark. We did get the inbuilt sat nav and the 6 cd changer in the dash so it is at top of its class would definatly buy mazda again

    Pros: Fantastic build quality, smoth ride

    Cons: Lots of road noise, heavy  on fuel for a small engine

    My Dream Machine — Great handling, great performance, great fuel economy. Couldn't ask for a better little car to get me from A to B!! Would highly recommend to friends and family as I am very happy with the fact that I own one. Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it! Zoom, zoom, zoom!! :)

    Pros: Everything!

    Cons: Nothing!

    Zoom Zoom! — Love the interior: black leather, red and blue lighting. Halogen headlights. My complaint is that the road noise is loud enough to prevent a phone conversation (on my Bluetooth of course...thank you, California). My display that gives the time, radio, etc has gone out twice. I would definitely recommend this car.

    Pros: Good general performance. Best car in its class.

    Cons: LOUD road noise on the highway.

    Mazda — car is peppy and quality is great. gas mileage a plus. this car is exceptional when taking corners at high speeds. car may be a little noisy at startup (tingy soung). much more efficient than a v-6 of same size. interior is very well laid out. comfy for long rides

    Pros: smooth

    Cons: noisy when ac comes on

    The Best Small Car On The Roads... — This is a car I bought for my wife but I find myself driving it quite often. It may be considered a small car but I can tell you that this one moves quite quickly. The triptonic shift really makes it feel like a manual car and with a 1.6 ltr engine under the hood, you are rarely left without power. It has a very good turn-in but you experience some understeer on the way out of hard corners. I would have preferred to have owned a better colour though...

    Pros: pick up, looks, build quality, dashboard

    Cons: basic interiors, very light, too much plastic

    Mazda3 Rocks — HATE the stock radio, but who the hell cares about that! It s a great car! Way better than my Civic, although my civic was better on gas. I love this car. No problems at all. Its totally reliable, its big enough for my son's carseats, but small enough I dont feel like I'm in a SUV or a freakin' minivan. I have had no troubles with it what so ever.

    Pros: size, handling, reliability, space, comfort, ride

    Cons: customer service w/ mazda, stock radio, no factory tint.
