I am not afraid to gush about all things Mazda, especially lately. If anyone thinks I'm a pushover just read the new, extremely thorough, review of the Mazda 3 in U.S. News & World Report. I'm not going to accuse the author of plagiarism even though the whole "The Jetta is in trouble" was my line the first time I sat in a 3 a few months back. But that's exactly the case. Only the Honda Civic comes close to delivering everything the 3 does at this price. But what Honda sorely lacks is style, power & performance. Three things the 3 has in abundance. If Mazda can win over the likes of non-enthusiast press like this, every day buyers shouldn't be far behind.
