It can really boogie!
I love this car. It has plenty of power and tons of control, while still being a comfortable ride. I never once thought to myself that this car would ever let me down, and as a motorcyclist, I never had an issue getting away from sticky situations and bad drivers with this car. leather interior is simple to clean, very fluid manual transmission, sounds great, and stops on a dime.
Best Car I've Ever Owned
Not only does this car have plenty of power when you want it, but the alcantra seats are extremely comfortable, the bose stereo is awesome, the ride is so much better than many other sports cars i've driven/owned. This car is such an extreme value right now! Practical hatch, tons of space when seats are folded down. Mazda sure did this car right, too bad they have abandoned making "speed" cars, pick one up while you still can!
Great Drivers Car
I love my Speed3! Almost 10 years old and with a few modifications its got dang near everything a new car has! It's most definitely a hot hatch! Interior has a race feel, with racing seats that will hold you snug while enjoying the killer Turbo 2.3L motor this car is equipped with! I have added an intake and exhaust to mine and its running almost 16 lbs of boost! ONLY issue I've had with the car is I've gone through 2 driver side front axles... I can honestly say thats most definitely the result of a maxed out coil-over suspension set up and very spirited driving! Most definitely a Drivers car, its got all the power you need factory, but 2k in performance and these cars will blow your mind! Very affordable hot hatch, with room for a car seat! Also my 2 1/2 year old daughters favorite of all of our cars if that means anything to ya!
