Mathilda is the best kept and best maintained Mazdaspeed 3 in all of Oregon! And yes, she's a stick shift! She has beautiful crystal pearl white mica exterior with soft suede leather seats and red high-contrast stitching as part of the Mazdaspeed GT package all of which have been immaculately maintained over the years. This car is my baby, and she is a fine lady - please treat her as such! That being said, she is also super fun and sporty to drive. The mazdaspeed 3 consistently came out on top of car and drivers "hot hatch" tests. With sport tuned suspension and steering, and a 263 horsepower turbocharged engine she's a force to be reckoned with. (Do be careful however as that torque steer can be pretty strong in 3rd gear). However, even with all of that power, Mathilda is still very fuel efficient! She will get you an an estimated 25 MPG, 30 if you're nice. She is also fully safety equipped with 4-wheel ABS, traction control, and airbags for all. She also has a full complement of tech accessories, a premium bose sound system, as well as an aux port for your phone/iPod so you can rock out to your favorite tunes while exploring the world. Note: This car is a manual stick shift. Make sure you're an expert at stick before renting. Please don't burn out the clutch! 😩
