    The Biggest Bang For Your Buck, All In One Value And Performance! — The car handles really well, huge brakes, and real peppy. Something you wouldn't expect out of a 4cyl compact car. All for a better value than a Civic Si, and for more power check out the 263hp mazdaspeed3

    Pros: handling, styling, performance, features, build quality.

    Cons: mp3 player is not standard.

    Awsome Car — the interior is stylish without being leather, but doesnt look old or outdated like most fabric interiors

    Pros: great pick up.

    Cons: the clock rolls back on itself so about once a month you have to reset it

    A Miata With A Dog Compartment. — Good power, amazing handling, terrific brakes, tons of cargo room, comfy ride, always-perfect steering effort, nice gearbox, very good headlights, cool styling inside and out, reasonably economical given that I drive like a maniac, base stereo ain't bad, nifty trip computer (yes, there's a hack to make it work even if you didn't pay for the GT).

    Pros: Everything above.  Also it looks and feels expensive.

    Cons: Too much road noise.  Not enough road feel through steering.  Less low-end torque than you'd expect from this much displacement.  Seat bottom is a little short and does not tilt up at the front.  Biggest beef is just that second gear is too tall---this makes for a 7.1 second 0-60 time 'cause you don't have to shift into 3rd to get to 60, and is nice for loafing around town without shifting, but when driving hard, acceleration briefly drops off a cliff in second unless you redline it in first.  I'd kinda prefer a slower car on paper in exchange for a faster one in the real world...give me a shorter second gear.
