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

First Car I Didn't Pay Cash For — I've had the car 2-1/2 months, logged a little over 13,000 kms on it, no problems, no noises. Car is very well built and worth every penny

Pros: good fuel economy, adequate power, high build quality

Cons: should be made available as a 2 or 3 door model

Great Little Car. — I own a 2005 corolla s. I own a 2008 mazda3 hatchback touring. The mazda is better for comfort, style, power. The mazda offers many options toyota does not. I think most toyota dealers have the attitude if you dont meet our terms someone else will. Try the mazda before you buy.

Owner for 0 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:25,000

Pros: Many options,Comfortable seating.Pearl colors

Cons: none

More Than You Think Your Getting. In A Good Way. — Just slap a K&N air filter in this puppy and you'll pull a lot more power out of this small 2.0L 16 valve 4cyl engine. The 5spd manual transmission is sure a fun ride. Though Second gear drags at first due to the gear ratios, this car doesnt like to sit still. Friends seem to enjoy the look and feel to the car when I drive which is a plus as I hate being the passanger.

Pros: Great Package all around for the Price Paid.

Cons: Masda SPEED3 only available in a 5 door.

I Love This Car! It's Useful, Good-looking, Sporty, And In A Good Price Range! — The Mazda3 5-door is what I have and it has great performance for the size. There's a 2.3L 156hp I-4 with a 5sp tranny. I have the Sportshift automatic, which is an automatic with a manual mode. It's really fun to play around in manual mode, especially when driving on a road that has several curves and straights. There are 17in alloy wheels, auto xenon headlights and auto wipers. There are square foglights, LED taillights, and side repeater lights. The hatch opens high and wide for easy loading of cargo and has an integrated cargo management system with a cover as well. There is a trip computer which gives you MPG info. There are steering wheel controls for the audio and cruise control. There is an auxiliary input for MP3 players and 6 speakers. There is a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, heated perforated leather seats, and door bottle holders, as well as a CAVERNOUS glovebox. Overall, it's a great car and I love it!

Pros: Auto xenon headlights and auto wipers, tilt and telescoping wheel, door bottle holders, huge glovebox, cargo management system, auxiliary input, and LED taillights.

Cons: 8-way MANUALLY-adjustable driver's seat(forward and back, recline, height, and lumbar.) Should have tinted windows in the back.
