Awesome, powerful little rocketship! by Traveler, Greensboro, North Carolina on 05/17/2013. Trim: 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring 5-Door, Owned 1 year.
Pros: If you are a car enthusiast and you like to drive and a car that handles like a dream the Mazdaspeed3 cannot be beat for the price. I've never driven a Porshe 911 and I'm sure it is a very fast, nice car, but the Mazdaspeed is bound to offer 90% of the excitement for a fraction of the cost. The acceleration will get even the most fit heart to beating fast in a hurry. It will give Boxsters, 335i-s, Chargers, Challengers and Mustangs, etc., a bit of doubt about their abilities on chance encounters. I stil grin at the prospect of getting behind the wheel because it's a daily carnival ride. Thank you Mazda and please keep 'em coming!
Cons: A little harsh over the bumps but get on the gas on the smooth pavement and soon you forget the bumps in the road. The price for all the fun is not so good gas mileage for a four cylinder. (18-25) Beyond that, it's been solid and reliable.
Overall review: Thanks to Mazda for offering fun to drive, solid handling cars with tons of value. Mazdaspeed 3 rules!

A fun car to drive. by TheCritic on 04/14/2013. Trim: 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring 5-Door, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Very fast...you need to grab it with both hands or it will "fly away". The good thing is that the seats hold you in place.
Cons: It's too much fun to drive...it's intoxicating.
Overall review: Great car, fun to drive.

Ultimate Fun Car! by YoshiSpeed on 04/02/2013. Trim: 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring 5-Door, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The car looks like it would be clumsy and slow but it is very nimble and gets up and goes. It rides nice without sacrificing agility and the engine and exhaust have just the right amount of rumble.
Cons: The back seat isn't as roomy as I'd like but it has more room than a Subaru WRX.
Overall review: I love this car. I've owned 4 Mazdas and each one just gets better and better.

Useless by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/29/2013. Trim: 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Touring 5-Door.
Pros: It is an OK car to drive and have fun with once you start moving....
Cons: TORQE STEER! and its pretty ugly. Wish it was AWD then maybe it would've been a better.
Overall review: Out of all the cars out there this one just did not work for me. If i just wanted a DD it still would not be the speed3 and as far as performance its useless.
