    Mazda 3 Five Door — I put off buying this car for two years but it was the best decision I have ever made concerning cars. It's a blast to drive, carries all of my friends when we go out, and looks sexy rolling down the road. I would recommend one of these cars to everyone I know.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Needs more horsepower

    Nothing Fancy But Lovable — Makes not the scene nor does it shock with performance still it has nothing to mock. It has only good things to mention starting from seats to reasonable torque everthing is done well.

    Pros: 1.6 TD is besting ever from Ford group. Torque enables is driving even with manual and low cost less 5l per 100km

    Cons: It does not make a difference , its like your driving corolla and always have to tell you liked altough nobody believes you.

    I Love My 3! — Picks up to speed very nicely, easy to maneuver, and fun to drive!! Interior is very roomy and comfortable. Even backseat passengers comment how comfy the bench seat is because it is built like buckets and "hugs" your body. Gas mileage is about what I expected, I average around 28-30 mpg. The 14 gallon gas tank is a bitch to fill all at once, so I pretend 1/2 is empty. I put about $25 a week in my tank just to keep it topped off.

    Pros: Drivability

    Cons: NONE

    Decent Car. — This was my aunts rental car. I drove it and it was OK. The engine was kind of rough and the brakes were a bit harder than I like, but it handled really well and the interior quality was wonderful. The rental was not this color blue, it was an ugly cream color. No comment on the MPGs, I never filled the tank. Overall, I like this car.

    Pros: Handling, comfort, price

    Cons: low profile tires will be expensive. the engine was kind of cheap-sounding.

    I Got In This Car And Needed To Get It — Great handling. The power could be better but for a 4 cylinder I guess i can't complain. It get's going pretty fast and you can drive about 100 and feel like you are going 60

    Pros: Gas saver, great handling, good lookin car, you can switch over to manuel transmission if you want to get goin to pass someone quickly or you need the extra boost to get on the highway

    Cons: small back seat for kids, getting going is not as fast as a 6cy
