Best car I've had

So much fun to drive, reliable, and lasts forever without anything breaking. Only complaint is the back seat area is small so it's hard to put anything back there. Trunk is huge though so that's a help


Sporty yet reliable, comfortable, and spacious

The car never failed me and never broke down on me. The most I?ve encountered with this car is a flat. Great car. Very reliable and smooth. Very fun to drive, has a very sporty feel for it, not to mention it?s the hot hatch in its category to come with more hp and tq than a gti ir st


Fun , sporty , fast car that is also practical.

Bought this car for my 16 year old son and he absolutely loves this car. I really like the car , it's a blast to drive but it's more of a serious sports car , it's very fast (263 HP) and handles like a little race car. The ride is rough and it's a little noisy on the road but a lot has to do with the tires. They are Z rated 18' 40s. The car has a very practical side to it with 4 doors and a roomy hatchback. The back seats lay flat and you can move large boxes pretty easily in it. The interior is very nice and the finish is excellent as you would expect from Mazda. I personally would have this car for a weekend fun car only , but I'm 50 so my opinion is very different than my 16 year old sons. This was the car he wanted and he's very happy with it.



Great power, ok mileage. Can fit 4 adults comfortably, but not for long road trips. It's a great all around fun, practical commuter car.


Best Car I've Ever Owned!

Hands down the best performance/tuner car on the cheaper end of the spectrum for the money. If you DON'T mind the struggles of FWD, buy this car. If you DO mind FWD, buy better tires and still buy this car! It's roughly $18,000 cheaper than a brand new STi, and with a few simple mods it will leave a stock one in the dust. You can make very reasonable power with them while still retaining the reliability and good fuel mileage (if not better mpg's) that this car comes with from the factory. The exterior isn't everyone's favorite, but it absolutely turns heads. If you're on a budget and still want a quick car, passing up on one of these would be a mistake.


Awesome car for the money!!

Bought my 2013 Mazdaspeed 3 w/tech package a month ago. I have loved every minute of owning. Great bang for your buck, can't wait to start modding it but as it is in stock form it's still enjoyable.


Most fun and reliable car I've owned

This car meet all my wants & needs! LOVE IT! I absolutely loved that car. Turn off the traction control, and you could get it sideways pretty quickly. Handled like a dream, and looked fantastic!


First car

This vehicle is probably one of the best bang for your bucks. It provides a sporty look while delivering great performance.


Very reliable!

Gas mileage and power are very impressive. Exteriors lines are sporty and modern. Interior is well designed and functional.


A really fun car

I love this car. It's super fast and handles well, but it does have a ton of torque steer. Mine has been lowered which is why I only put two stars for comfort, but otherwise it's a great all around car.
