Mazda 3 gets shaken

...so there I am cruising at 50 in a 45 zone when this New Mazda 3 pulls into the road. He's in the right lane and really pulling hard through the gears. As soon as he gets level with me I floor it and blast off. The 3 hangs with me until I hit 70 and then I back off - he then blows on past.

...gotta love the look on his face (and the salemans)

No, it was a 2010 Madza 5 hatch - don't think they have a Mazdaspeed version yet.

...if it was it would not have hesitated to spool up it's turbo and blast past.

It was fun holding him off

My wife drive a mazda 3.............we are about to trade it in or sell it and get a small midsize SUV. But i can't see one being any kind of competition for a modified diesel........

But always fun to play with them, especially when a salesman is driving.
