    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey friends! I traded my 2015 WRX Limited with 10,5xx miles the other day for a leftover 2015 Mazda 3 sGT 6-speed. Mazda 3: Pros: Interior is a letter grade above the WRX. Shifter is nice with no notches. Command center is awesome. Exterior styling is also nice and "blend in-able" -- Car...

  7. Need Help, at a crossroads of the sorts

    2007-2009 Mazdaspeed3 Discussion
    So I finally have the down payment I need to finance a car. I have driven both, and enjoy them. One is a 2008 MazdaSpeed 3. The other is a 2004 WRX. Mazda speed is stock( I would prefer to buy a stock car), as is the WRX. Mazdaspeed is about 14k with 83K miles. The WRX is 12k with essentially 0...

  13. Mazdaspeed 3 vs. Subaru WRX

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I drive a naturally aspirated 3 with the 2.5. I'm curious how you picked the Mazdaspeed 3 and if you considered the WRX. With 263 horsepower rear or all wheel drive sounds likes a gread way to reduce tourqe steer. My NA 3 is well controlled and Mazda did a great job handling tourqe steer on it.
