Unbelievable quality and price and paint job

Eric Singer was VERY knowledgeable and excited about finding me the right vehicle. The entire dealership team treated us with the best customer service I’ve encountered. Luis Serna, Business Manager, was kind on working out a very reasonable price. I will forever be a customer of Mazda City!! Sincerely, Jennifer


Mazda3 is sharp and fun to drive!

The car is fantastic, it is just a fine looking ride and has all the safety features you could want + I got the premium package ! The white leather is sharp!


Very nice car.

This car actually has too much stuff. It gets overwhelming trying to figure out all of the options and how to use them. Very pleased so far.


Has all the features of a Mercedes

A pure luxury car without the luxury price in a perfect size for what I need. The interior looks right out of a car at 5 times the price. The seats are so comfortable. My daughter even commented from the back seat that it was really comfortable. With 187 HP this car can get out of its own way in a hurry. And all the safety features are amazing.


Best small performance 4-passenger AWD hatchback

So, I've previously owned two Mazdas: a Miata and a CX-5, both are fine handling, well made, well designed cars. But I wanted the 250hp Turbo engine this time, yet keeping AWD and costing less than $32,000. The Mazda3 Turbo Hatch is also 300 lbs lighter than the CX-30 Turbo, which costs $2000 more. And it's 0-60 is 5.9 sec!


Smooth drive!

I came from a 2010 Toyota and I’m so glad I switched to Mazda. The amenities, the drive, and the comfort is far superior. 10/10!



Love my new Mazda3 Turbo. So much fun to drive with so much pep when you step on the gas. ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM. Safety features galore which was of top importance to me and the Mazda3 is rated a top safety pick. Check out any on-line YouTube video of professional test drivers and this great little car and see how impressed they all are with the handling, price, and looks of this top pick for 2021.


Not as Good as Previous Mazda's I've Owned

Have had problems from the day i purchased.. have had 4 front headlight assemblies installed.. crazy !!! I think COVID has affected quality of factory production.. Dealership has been great but product below par...


My New Mazda 3 Sedan Turbo Premium + Is Fantastic!

The car has great performance, yet is very low key. It has the interior that would be more comparable to an Audi or BMW. Just got it, but so far I am extremely happy I did!


Sweet ride!

Own the 2021 Hatchback W/Premium Package. This car has all the bells and whistles. Smooth ride, awesome styling. The interior feels and look luxurious. Mine has the red leather which really adds to the sophistication inside. 12 speaker Bose stereo is incredible. Easy to use navigation system with apple car play. Love this car!
