It worked gewd told 200k

It was awesome and had cool wheels. 5 speed tranny. Was my favorite car. Fully loaded too. Was so much fun to drive. Would drift in it too. I'd say this is very good car with low miles but like every other car it started to have problems at almost 200k.


steering control is good

car has good steering control in winter and snow and also computer not sure i just was driving and some day lost control the car controlled it self by it self. the bad thing in car is bearing problems, suspensions like, control arm, shocks and wires connection to lights.


Fantastic car

Perfect first car, has everything I need and some more! Easy and fun to drive, would definitely reccomend. My only issue is that the door handle on the driver side is a little loose but its great other than that.


Very sporty and well built for an economy car

Very sporty and well built for an economy car. Nice interior. A tad tight but no different than any other comparable economy car. Drives great! Love the manual transmission


Love my mazda3

Love it best value I didn't want to drive my truck no more and this car I found in 2 months exactly what I was looking for I couldn't b more happier


Happy with our purchase

We bought this car for our son, a recent college graduate. He will be using this car to commute to/from work. Initially was not a car were were considering but the price/condition sold us.


Most reliable car of them all

This car gave me no problems for over 11 years. Its style and comfort made my long trips across the country So enjoyable. Gas mileage was fantastic even for city driving.


Good engine but terrible rust

I've owned this car for twelve years and it is a lot of fun to drive. It is reliable and sporty. The major drawback is cheap body materials. I have terrible rust and hail damage. My Mom owned a Ford for a similar length of time that had little rust and showed no hail damage while experiencing the same conditions.


Great car!

Reliable daily driver. Fast and fun to drive. Never had any issues with this car. For the year it is, it doesn't look outdated which is awesome!


Gets you where you need to go

This is a small compact car. Only 2 car seats can fit in the back . Small interior . Very easy on the eyes. Great starter car
