Beautiful car

Amazing condition and had all the features my daughter wanted interior and exterior c o lor and sunroof.I wanted to keep it for myself.I have never seen a cleaner interior.Very happy!


Good car

Very good car and it gets great gas milage. For it being a small car it did have a lot of roo. For someone who is 6 feet 5 inches tall


One of the most fun to drive cars I've owned!

This car is the perfect blend of sportiness and practicality. Great style inside and out in a sporty 4 door sedan. Fun to drive and the perfect size for me!


The 2011 Mazda 3 hatch S model

I owned this car from 2011 to 2018 and it only had 29500 miles on it when I traded it in. The Mazda is a fantastic vehicle. Performance, handling, fuel mileage were excellent. Much like a compact sports car. The only things I did to this car, beside normal maintenance, was a new battery and 4 tires. Great car.


The best regular car on the market

If all you want is a regular car that's reliable, holds 4/5 people and some luggage, is good on gas, has enough power, looks OK, doesn't break down, is safe, and handles well enough to keep you out of trouble, then this is your car. You won't impress people, you won't beat a Corvette around a track, you can't haul 6 horses, or carry a soccer team, or climb a mountain. If you don't need to do any of those things, why bother? You'd need to spend a lot of money to get something better, and there's nothing better than this for the money.


The most reliable car that I have ever owned!

This car has great features and is very comfortable. The car still looks good on both the inside and out. It is all very reliable!


Reliable, Safe, well-built, excellent handling.

i purchased my 2011 mazda 3 with about 70 thousand miles on it and so far i have never had a single issue with it. it is very refined when you compare it to any other small car of the era. it is quiet and smooth on the highway, and feel substantial and stable even in snow conditions. I especially love the compliments that i have gotten on the car?s stylish and unique looks, particularly because here in michigan very few people have mazda?s. taking this car onto a twisty road is the most fun thing and i look forward to driving my 3 every day. i have driven many other compact cars and not even the Honda civic of that era could compare to the level of sophistication of the mazda3 and it?s independent rear suspension. my brother drives a ford focus, and it feels so cheap. i am planning on getting a new mazda3 very soon becuse of my good experience.


easy to drive and relaible

This car could satisfy all my daily needs and never let me down, also it was economic in fuel , good car to own


The best car I ever had!

I love this car so much. It's really good in gas, and mechanically it's great. Affordable for a tight budget.


Simple, Reliable Car

This is a simple reliable car. It is a small car perfect for the city, but it has enough space in the trunk for a road trip. I have 2 mazda 3's and they are both great, cheap cars. Maintenance is easy and repairs are very inexpensive compared to other imports.
