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!!!!!!

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
