  • What are you talking about? Seriously, you make no sense. Do you ever have anything to back up what you are saying?
  • I have a 6 and it does not have orange lighting. Styling is a personal issue but from the amout of good looks and thumbs up I get driving my 6 I think most people agree. Also, the 6 has very little cheap plastic in it. Have you actually sat in one b…
  • The 6? Are you talking about the Mazda6 because that car is considered without a doubt the best looking midsize sedan on the market. It does not even compare to the Camry or Accord in terms of styling. Plus the interior of the Mazda6 is tasteful exe…
  • Mazda6 looking like Corolla? Certainly not EVERYONE was saying this. I guess there are a few similarities but the Corolla looks so dumpy and the Mazda6 looks so damn good. It is strange, they share some design elements but the Toyota does not pull t…

  • Well I own a Mazda6 and drive it every day. I drove just about every other car in this segment before deciding the 6 has by far the best steering/suspension/handling. If you want to feel "elastic" steering try a Passat. BTW, my previous car was a 20…

  • Wow, the people who think the Mazda6 has skittish steering must be out of their minds. Come on, who else has complained about the 6 handling? Fact is the Mazda6 has a very sophisticated suspension and I would highly doubt the 3 would be better than …

  • I have heard different things about the Miata. In fact I have seen interior drawings and a possible exterior drawing of the next Miata. I wouldn't rule out a coupe. BTW, the interior looks amazing.

  • If you want more trunk space they want you to buy a Mazda3 hatch. The Mazda6 costs considerably more.

  • That car is sexy like J-Lo. It is bootylicious but who is complaining?! It is certainly more unique than the current Protege. I love it although my 6 is still better.
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 August 2003
  • The 3 would be $19,500 if the price matched the most basic Mazda6. I doubt Mazda would want to take it this high becuase that price is usually reserved for the Mazdaspeed model. However the VW Jetta goes up that high so I there is no reason why the …

  • Ok maybe it wasn't the highest selling at the time but it certainly was the most cutting edge of the Japanese marques. Yeah the rotary guzzled gas and had some problems but it was still damn cool! Most people who know anything about cars automatical…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 July 2003
  • I think Mazda's big mistake was to drop the rotary from its lineup. If I were in charge at Mazda I would add a rotary power option to every car made. People would have the freedom to chose between conventional and unique power plants. I believe that…

  • AMEN With one addition... The great force of Mazda is its intelligent and daring small engineer team; the even greater force of Honda is the BRAINLESS mass of american buyers.
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 July 2003
  • If the Mazda3 is so perfect, then others won't be able to sell their cars." Nope, not really, the 6 is the best car in its class and the Camry out sells it 8.5:1. Best does not always mean best selling. People still think of Mazda as just a niche c…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 July 2003
  • While the Mondeo thing is debatable as both of these platforms are very similar and only very discerning drivers would be able to tell which was better. think you are off with the focus vs. 3-series comparison. The focus is a fine handling car but y…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • Most of the European car magazines I have read have said that the 6 is more fluid and sophisticated than the Mondeo. They are both wonderful platforms but I would think twice about putting one above the other. I can say for sure though that the 6 is…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • I think this thing looks GREAT! All you doubters should wait until you see it in the flesh. Apparently the sedan and the hatch are quite different but Mazda has been so quiet with the sedan. Weird!
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • Wow, that looks great, but what about the sedan??
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • Please, Please, post those pictures! I already have the car of my dreams (Mazda6) but I am a Mazda enthusiast none-the-less! creakid1 = I doubt the 3 will be any quitter than the 6 but it will be a very fine car none-the-less. Suspensions are subje…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • Well, you can believe what you want. I am friends with a senior designer at Mazda R&D in Irvine Califonia and he is always talking about how much FoMoCo is in love with the Mazda6 platform. He says the 3 will be more agile because of the car's s…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 June 2003
  • "...although I believe the 3 will have twice the inner beauty as the 6." I highly doubt this, the Mazda6 platform is going to be used for Volvos and other high end FoMoCo products. The 3 will be very good, but not better than the 6. The 6 is truly …

  • That blue wagon is a photshop.
  • AMEN!
  • Wow, ok cool, you can disagree as much as you want.
  • The front looks like a cross between the Mazda2 and the Mazda6. While I hear the rest takes many cues from the new RX-8. Plus there is a little VW Jetta thrown in here and there. A Z4 (hideous car) this is not.
  • Yeah it looks like a 5-door Z4 hatchback especially because the car does not look anything like a Z4 at all. Good comparison.
  • That is beautiful!
  • Mazda is not going to be stupid and give the 3 more horsepower than the 6. The old saying, "You get what you pay for" still stands strong. The Mazda3 will be an amazing car no doubt but pretty soon you guys will have talked your way into the 3 havin…
    in Mazda3 Comment by panamaltd2 August 2003
  • I wasn't saying that is not what the sedan is going to look like. I actually think the blue sedan is going into a turn which makes the body appear higher than the wheels. Official pictures usually show the true styling character of the car better th…
  • We need to wait around for the offical pictures from mazda. The picturfes that we have seen are NOT offical.
  • I have some spy-photos of the car, but how are we supposed to post pictures on this message board?
  • What other packages do I have to silect in order to get a 6i with Manual and the sport package? Can i just get the sport package alone? This is very frusterating. Thanks!
  • Oh Mazda3! Where are you? When will we get to see you??
  • Thanks for all the information guys... but when do the rest of us get to see it!? I hope the front doesn't look too much like a Toyota (which I don't think it will).
  • Wow thank you so much for all the information! We wouldn't know anything about it without you. Is Mazda telling you anything else about the car like when the rest of us will get to see it? Lol, just a thought...does Mazda pat you down for cameras or…
  • If the dash looks a little cheap (which i doubt mazda would do) how does it look better then the Passat? I am sure it is better then the WRX. This sounds like it will blow the competition sky high. Go Mazda!
  • What does, " Looked like it was dials, but LCD hands!" mean?
  • Come on you have to spill the beans!
  • When do the rest of us get to see it?
  • Please, can you tell us anything??!! Please, Please, Please. What about the sedan. Did anybody sneak any pictures?
