This a great car. Was surprised by the luxurious interior on my skyactiv 2.5. Lots of extras. Heated seats, gos, back up Cameras, leather, auto headlights, wipers, blindspot and many other. Drive it more than my Camry le
Fantastic first car!
Great first car. I only had my 2014 for about 2 years before I wrecked it but in that time but almost 80k miles on it, driving it hard, from Florida to Maine to Montana and just about everywhere in between. She did me so well that whole time, only having some fairly minor transmission issues a couple months after I purchased her used. Acceleration/shifting could be a litttttle janky sometimes too but it was nothing I ever worried about and it wasn’t much worse than most used cars I’ve driven. Super comfortable with amazing fuel economy and great tech for the year, and handled like a dream.
Great Combo: Practical, Good Handling, Economy
I've owned my Mazda 3 hatchback for 2 years and have used it for a combination of daily commute + trips to the mountains for hiking and fishing. It's fun to drive, well-designed, solid, and reliable - and gets 30 mpg on the highway. I've owned a lot of sports cars of the years, and, even though this is NOT a sports car, it is very well-balanced in terms of power, handling, and responsiveness. A lot of fun and very adaptable with the hatchback.
very reliable and fuel effeceint.
I used the car for commuting. It is fun to drive and very reliable. It has an amazing factory stereo with a hands-free and media Bluetooth system. It also has a blind-spot monitoring system and drives smoothly.
Does the job.
I bought this car with 75k miles on it and I now have 90k miles on it. Good styling, nice interior with nice infotainment system. No mechanical issues so far. The only complaint I have is the engine is quite load when you start it, and it takes a while for the oil to run through the car. Other than that, it has been a great reliable daily driver!
Favorite car, super reliable
This car has been incredible. No issues. Maintenance for the car was very straightforward. I always felt very safe driving this car for my commute and even on road trips.
Will not buy another Mazda
No need for a long, winded explanation. To the point: 1. Driver seat leather is tearing at seams after less than six years and 50,000 miles. No abnormal wear and tear, just poor materials and/or workmanship. 2. The car will not downshift. I come out of taking a corner or makIng a turn, and the car is in third or fourth gear. Flooring it does nothing. I have to manually downshift with the paddle shifters. 3. Mysterious, unknown knocking in the engine or drivetrain that randomly comes and goes. No mechanic, Mazda or otherwise, has been able to locate the source. 4. The nav/entertainment system is horrid. Features work, then stop working. Bluetooth music is hit-and-miss. I have to disconnect and reconnect my phone to get it working again. Six years of complaining about this!
Had the 2.0 Manual Sedan for 80,000+ Miles
This has been a terrific car. The back seats are a little tight and interior storage could be better, but otherwise a reliable, fun car. Too bad Mazda stopped offering the manual in the 3 sedan.
Beautiful and good as new
This car is reliable and drives very well. It is fully upgraded with lather sets and USB adapters. I highly recommend this car and I am glad I purchased it even for it being 2014 in 2020. You can’t tell the difference.
