    Glad I Bought Before 'smiley Face'! — I love the car, but it tends to go through tires quickly. Somebody said it might be due to the way I drive it. Oh well, just the price of fun I guess! So far I haven't had any non routine maintenance/repairs, and have over 45K on it already.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the handling

    Cons: nothing sucks about it

    Zoom Zoom — 0-62mph in 6.8. Great brakes, superb handling, not great gas mileage, fun car to drive, rally car guts. Gas cap on 2008 models get stuck. 4 times to be exact. Tires wear quickly, but grip well. Solid engine and power-train.

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

    Pros: good performance with lots of room for stuff

    Cons: everyone is buying them

    A Great First Car — The Mazda 3 s Sport Hatchback is a good first car. It is not too fast but handles very well. Also plenty of room and with the seats folded down it really can hold almost anything you would need to transport. Although it does lack in speed the semi-automatic gearbox still gives it a fast feeling without actually needing to speed.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handles well

    Cons: Not fast enough
