2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s TouringReview

2008 Mazda 3 — This is my current car and I love this one too. The performance of the car is pretty decent, it has a decent acceleration, has amazing breaking, rated first in its class, and the handling is very good as well. The build quality is very good. Its quiet, loud when i want it to be, and overall pretty cool. Only repair needed was the power steering pump system which was a standard repair for 2008. The appearance of the car is awesome. Its real sporty looking, and the interior of the car is also remarkable. The gas mileage is better than my Tacoma, but not remarkable better. All maintenance is covered by warranty. Overall the car is a great pick, and is awesome to drive. Its a great drive and I fully recommend it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great overall vehicle

Cons: More power needed

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
