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.

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Awsome Car — the interior is stylish without being leather, but doesnt look old or outdated like most fabric interiors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