Driving The Used 2008 MAZDA MAZDA3 The MAZDA3's handling is simply superb, with incredibly tight steering that responds instantaneously to input. As we joyfully wound our way over a serpentine road, we were instantly reminded of other great compacts that evoked the same emotional response. Even though the MAZDA3 is a front-wheel-drive car, it exhibits very little torque steer. The automatic transmission features a quick shift from first to second gear for a faster response, making even steep hills no threat to rapid acceleration. You can shop this segment until the cows come home and not find as handsome an interior as in the 2008 Mazda MAZDA3. A racy three-pod instrument cluster, red dash lighting.
