"This car is fantastic. For the price you pay, it is very well equipped indeed, but thats not the best of it.
The best thing about this car is that its fun to drive! Handles like a race car and is peppy enough to have some fun. If you want more, I'd recommend the Mazdaspeed3 which is a true pocket rocket!
The regular 3 is also very economical and in hatch form very practical.
Only downside I could offer is that the aircon system is a little on the weak side, but not a show stopper by any means.
Overall, love it!"
"I have had this car for about two weeks now and I love it!! It is a fast little car that is a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside, especially when you fold down the back seats. I always wished i knew someone with a truck that I could haul stuff in, and now I dont need to look any further, I just throw everything in the back of my Mazda 3! However, I did just make the first warantee claim ever on the vehicle because there was some dashboard rattling going on. It has alledgedly been fixed but I will find that out today. Overall, pretty sturdy little car I would say!"
