Mazda3 0-60

I test drove a Mazda3 S and thought it was a great luxury-fOCUS, but that its weight kind of masked the 2.3s power. Car and Driver Magazine TV did say that they got a 0-60 of 7.4 seconds. Not shabby. If I hadn't gotten such a good deal on my PR5 I would have gotten a 3 eventually. The 05 fOCUS is sadly to damn ugly...

Mazda has big hopes for the 3. With the new redisigned body and shared parts with Ford/Volvo, it will most likely be a big money maker. I personally like the style of the 3 and the interior is very nicely done. Also, with it being faster than the SVT is good punch for the buck. Z3Matt, you're absolutly right...the new design of the Focus is not too great looking. They are starting to appeal to a more conservative crowd, which takes most of us on this Forum out of the loop!

Seriously... HID's, nav., etc. in a sub-$20k car?

Mazda3 = win [maybe after I get rid of the Focus]

Concerning the PR5 I purchased. The head flow is pretty good on these engines, and the JDM parts are cheap. The JDM engine puts out 170hp. I'll probably do most of that, and then maybe a turbo some day. They are popular for this car.
