    Great Car For The Price With A Lot Of Potential. — This car is made to exhilarate the enthusiast on a budget. Best bang for the buck if you are looking for a turbo car that performs like nothing else in it's class. It's hard to keep your foot off the gas, that's the only bad thing so far that i am running into :D

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

    Pros: -TurboCharged Performance that can be upgraded for more power for less
    -Great Handling
    -It's a driver's car built with the enthusiast in mind.
    -Good Price/Performance ratio comparing to it's rivals in class
    -One of the baddest FWD cars out there

    Cons: -Front seats are uncomfortable for long rides
    -Lumbar support has no support
    -Only comes in Stick Shift
    -Once you start upgrading the power you get addicted to boost.

    Good Quality, High Performance. — This car is extremely fun to drive. my wife and I have owned mazdas for years now and have never had a single problem with reliability or a break down. Would absolutely recommend this car to a friend. Its design and styling look amazing as well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast, powerful, reliable, no break-downs, good cargo space, comfy interior.

    Cons: Great grocery getter, not the best car for babies!
