The Mazda Speed 3 has a lot of power in a front wheel drive platform. Provides above average fuel efficiency for cars in the same category. It is a thrill to drive and will sometimes have you driving a bit too spirited. Although the interior is lacking, the responsiveness and feedback from the vehicle while driving is above average. This car will give others like the SRT4, GTI, GLI or Subaru's a run for their money. Stock parts have lasted me for over 95K miles and only normal wear and tear items have had to be replaced. AC is running strong in a high heat climate with a very large amount of usage. Build quality and design have both been great and have definitely lasted through harsh weather and a few children. I would recommend this car to my friends and others.
Story
There are a lot of stories that I can share. I guess one of the most memorable would be when a much more expensive car pulled up next to me and wanted to "race", they were just wanting to mess around a bit and were very surprised by the performance of this car. It beat out their car which as I said, was substantially more expensive than the Mazda.
Pros
There are several Pro's, first, the car has great performance. The Turbo charged engine allows you to pass other cars easily. The brake system allows you to remain safe in situations when you might need to stop quickly. The radio system, speakers and overall acoustics are in line with other cars, but when added to the sound dampening, the car is above the others.
Cons
Interior design materials are lacking, but are in line with other cars in the same group. Tire wear is less than average, but can be improved with a lighter foot. There are a few blind spots due to car shape and seat position. It will require you to move around a bit sometimes. Some fluids are specialty Mazda fluids which have to replaced at the dealership.

This car is the best balance of price, performance, style, reliability, and gas mileage. With the smaller turbo engine there's almost too much power, but without engaging the turbo the gas mileage is upper 20's (mi/gallon) on the highway. The suspension is tight, so cornering is fun. The interior of the car feels luxurious with the leather/alcantra seats, red-tinted dash lights, and I love the way the instrument cluster looks.
Story
We used to put all three of our children in the back seat of the car. It was our only car for a couple years, and people would always marvel at how we could get by with a hatchback and a family of five. It wasn't by accident--we did the research beforehand and found the Mazda sedans to have the most hip room in their class, thus allowing us to keep three kid's seats side by side. We did hav...

Pros
The 6-speed is under-rated in terms of gas mileage. The manufacturer mileage is well under what I actually get, which is upper 20's on the highway. There is also an abnormal amount of torque, even at low RPMs, so I don't have to down-shift to accelerate quickly and pass people. So the transmission, combined with the 2.3 liter turbo, make this a fun marriage of practicality and fun.
Cons
The sway bar bushings tend to go bad early. I only have 90,000 miles on the car, but I have already had to get the front and rear sway bar bushings replaced. They were squeaking, especially when it was cold out. So that was a disappointment.
