Want style and a fun car here it is...

Mazda is not your first choice when you think about cars, but it should be. The Mazda 3 is the best choice I have ever made next to marrying my spouse.


Excellent car for the money

Seats are not the most comfortable for a larger person, but it is extremely fun to drive. It gets great gas mileage and looks great!


Great car but riddled with blind spots

Lost her during Hurricane Harvey but before that I rarely had any problems with it during the five years she was with me.


Sporty Look, great price

To tell you the truth, I wanted a reliable car, so I thought "get a Toyota corolla" but those cars are not very appealing image wise, so I started looking for an alternative, then I found this Mazda3 S Sport Hatch that were so good looking, sporty, and with about the same quality than Toyotas, after all they are both made in Japan, so I went for it. Boy I love this car, it's very quick, very stylish, and very good quality, it rides very nice but it also has the sport handling that you'd spect from a sporty looking car, the interior are very durable and the Bose sound system is just great! The rims are to die for and these cars keep the alignment very good, which saves on tire costs, I've got 50k on mine and I can see I can go probably another 20k on those tires. I most positively recommend this car, is not too big like a Camry, not too small, like a Yaris, it seats right in the middle and it just flys. Love the airplane like cabin with all the controls on the steering wheel too! you'll get bluetooth, multiple disc CD and more. If you have a chance to get one of these, don't let it go by, you won't be disappointed.


Bang for the buck

This is a nice car, good gas mileage, nice design inside & out but does lack a little room in back for older kids.. Road noise is not bad and knock on wood this car has been very dependable...


Super reliable, quick & smooth

This car is the ideal car. Great value for money. Very peppy, comfortable and tight. No noises at all. Good on gas (24 mpg city; 30 highway. Great AC. Very nice and firm steering. Good handling. Nice interior. Great radio (good bass). So far, with 85,000 miles on it, no issues whatsoever. Recommended.


Greatest Valued Car Ever

This car was so great to me. It never once gave me any problems. For what we paid when we purchased it new it was a great value for the quality. My favorite thing about the car was the tight steering. I will always love my first car. I have no complaints.


Great car!!

This car was great to me!! Never had any major problems til the end, and that wasn't major. Drove great, great gas mileage and an overall wonderful car!


Very safe and reliable first car

Mazda is a very reliable and safe brand. The mazda3 has great mpg's and a reliable engine. The handling is great for a 4dr sedan, and is great for commuting.


Very reliable!

It's amazing in gas and very reliable. The seat are a bit on the firm side but if you like that then the car is practically perfect. It can fit 5 people comfortably (depending on size and weight.) It is kind of small but it's an overall great vehicle.
