    2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring Hatchback Review

    Mazda 3 Hatch — Its a very good car. Reliable. Acceleration in 1st gear is slow....but picks up pretty good in 2nd gear. Had some issues with the Power steering and shocks, and I had to buy tires for it already. But thats more due to the New England weather. Either way its not the best car to be driving up hill in a snow storm. Dealer was excellent at fixing any issues I may have had. All in all its a fun car to drive. I recommend it as a inexpensive car.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Horrible in the snow

    Mazda3 - Zoom Zoom — With its beautiful Ute red paint, all who behold it are instantly jealous. Indeed, the attitude of this baby comes out in its ability to communicate to the driver confidence and control. From initial looks and feel to performance and economy, this car screams, "I am your car!" It's no sports car (and it won't cost you anywhere close to one), but it gives you the best driver-car relationship anyone could ask for for under 17 grand.

    Pros: Standard accessories, tight steering, value, gas milage, looks...

    Cons: Not the most powerful car around, not AWD.

    Sexii Mazda3 — amazing! you get your moneys worth! bose sound system, a/c, sunroof, heated seats, leather, the handling is amazing you could potentially take ramps at 80kms/hr, so easy to mod, so many choices!!! Gas consumption is reasonable! so much fun to drive! definitely worth a test drive! Try it out...

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing yet

    Nick Mcintosh — I absolutely love it, has good acceleration, 2.0 liter 148 hp, fuel efficent with 32 miles per gallon. Got the Value Edition with some extras, looks well built has some nice features such as volume controls on the steering wheel, ABS / EBD, Side Air bags is nice. Breaking and handling is solid, no odd noises or anything out of the ordinary. Its a blast to drive. Got mine for a deal, 0% and for about 17.5k. Not bad for a nice car.

    Pros: Fun to drive, fuel efficent, handels great.  

    Cons: Could use a few more goodies

    Mazda3 Maxx Sport Hb — Sweet, sweet handling due to awesome chassis and suspension, funky and head-turning good looks, interior lighting matches the car's chracteristics, decent acceleration and braking, quite decent 5 speed manual tranny although the position of the box is somehow a bit awkward for a RHD car, high Japenese build quality, ok gas mileage but MEGA fun to drive!

    Pros: Build quality, handling, performance per dollar, looks, fun-factor

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Amazing Car — I love the speed, the look, the acceleration, the braking, the technology and every single bolt in it. the only thing i dislike is its weak yet safe body. My least expense is its gas money. I dont spent that much although i drive a lot. it has a great milage of about 35 on highway. finally it is an amazing car.

    Pros: Looks like a fierce angel

    Cons: weak body

    Pros: cheap and nice

    Cons: gas milage a little bit worse than honda
