I my Mazda 3 hatchback but there is definitely room for improvement.

I love almost everything about my car. The only things I would want changed are as follows. While driving you can hear the tires on the road really loudly, you have to turn the music way up to drown it out. But I am kinda used to it now. I have had to replace the window controller once. My back passenger window doesn't roll down. And my driver side door handle broke. It's made of cheap plastic inside of it so I bought a new one and that one is also breaking. I wouldn't be surprised if they recalled it, poor design. Other than that I love my car! And it's purple!

Check out the awesome qualities of this Mazda 3 hatchback addition.

My car is a hatchback, which is actually smaller for my family, but the gas mileage is awesome! I do travel often and sometimes far so saving gas is always a plus! My car is also set in kilometers, pretty much the only downfall. (its from Canada) and I can't figure out how to reset it to us miles. Also most 07's I would think would have a cruise control. This one does not which sucks but hey it's ok because I absolutely love it. And it gets up to speed quick. This car is an automatic but I have the option to change it to 5 speed which I like.

2007 Mazdaspeed 3 owner review

I have owned my 2007 Mazdaspeed3 for 7 years now. It has been a very reliable car for myself and my small family. The hat back is very spacious and functional for such a compact car. It seats 4 people comfortably. The gas mileage is average for the size, but that is partly due to the fact that this car is mainly used for driving around town. Overall I would recommend this car to younger people who are looking for a fun and functional vehicle.
