Good Looking car. Actually a 2018
Meets most of my needs. No high tech garage door opener or heated steering wheel. The Engine was half the size of my previous car but not a knock on the car I just purchased. It's the third Mazda in our family.
Rides great is very agile and light. I find it does well in the snow if you drive controlled and easy on the clutch. The thing drifts like a dream if your into driving the fun way. The ride is good but mine needs new shocks. accel is great and the car is just fun to drive.
my favorite car
i bought my mx3 after driving a geo metro and was so glad to find it. it had 32000 when i bought it and over 100000 when i finally traded it. very reliable, great mileage and fun to drive. in minnesota the mx3 didn't like snow too well but just put some weight in the back or snow tires and you'll be fine. out of all the cars i've had, it's still my favorite when i think back. i love the current mazda 3 but not the 4 door design. i wish they'd re-make the mx3 but...oh well.
