Me Likey ... But Without The Alloys And The Lower Height It Looks A Bit Goofy ... — Gas mileage is alrgiht (330 - 360 mi. on 13 gallions depending on how much pedal mashing I do). Insurance is ridiculous but that's on my speeding not the car. I love the Mazda 3 body style ... This is definitely the first car I've owned where I am DEFINITELY going to mod it ... stupid companies still make cars with no power locks ... THAT'S first ... but after that gotta change the color ... then I'll be able to get her some nice kicks ... but first things first ...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sweet inside AND out ...

Cons: Can be spendy

I Love Her — I LOVE HER TO DEATH The whole car is very soul driven, this is not an ordinary car, you buy this car because you love this car. Shifting the gears is such a soothing feeling. Racing away from the lights gets your heart pounding. Flying around on back roads is very settling, this car corners exceptionally. The interior is great, especially when you put the time in to keep it clean, and the exterior looks great from all angles. I sometimes just stop and admire her beauty for a couple minutes. Even when you red line her and push top speed around on highways, i still can get 28 to 20 mpg, great car! SO MUCH FUN! LOVE HER

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: EVERYTHING

Cons: NOTHING

I Love This Car — The performance is good for the class of the car, the gas mileage is great, I really like the styling of the car, it's got a good look to it. It's a little bit expensive for what's in it. This car is so much fun to drive, it's worth it. The interior is very well done. The seats are comfortable,It's roomy enough for four people, and the trunk space is quite impressive. It's an easy car to upgrade, both audio and performance wise.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's quick and fun to drive

Cons: It has become so popular, these cars are targeted for theft more often than not

Zoom-zoom...forver! — Best car for under $20,000. I paid $22,000 for everything but leather and navi. Handling was great stock but I've made it even better with Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs. Added a Fujita F5 Cold Air Intake for better performance along with the Advanced Timing and Ground Wire. Interior is great and very driver friendly. Highway driving, even with not going the speed limit, I can get 30+ mpg. Owned for a year and a half without any problems.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Cheap, Performance car with the economy price-tag.

Cons: none

Mazda... Always A Fun To Drive Car! — Nice car for the cost... Good suspension & stability on the hatchback version. Interior is way superior to its competitors. Very fun to drive. Some issues with stock front shocks and oil leaks from the transmission box. 2.3l engine drives pretty good.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun Suspension Hatchback

Cons: Oil leaks
