Fantastic! — The most favorable aspect about is vehicle is the cost to own. Very low maintenance! As of March 2015, I have 78,000 miles and I have put on new front brakes, changed the spark plugs and changed the transmission fluid.

Great Inexpensive Commuter — I've enjoyed this car for some time now. Doesn't need a lot of maintenance and gets great gas mileage on commutes. Would highly recommend, especially for those living in urban areas. May be looking to upgrade to the newer model later this year.

Pros

Fun to drive, handles great, great gas mileage- I do 5 mi over speed limit or less. My friends say I drive like an old man. I ride motorcycles fast, not cars. It has get up and go if need be.

Cons

It's not the truck I want.

Zoom Zoom — Low cost of ownership. awesomely reliable. Comfortable, Sporty. Really good storage space for all my stuff. Stability and traction control has helped avoid accidents more times than I care to mention- it can be tough out there. Safe, Side curtain air bags and crumple zones- never used though, nice to know its available.

Reliable But Slow — The Mazda3 provides great styling and decent interior space for a small sedan. I like the dashboard configuration and the looks of the interior in the evening with interior lights on. The engine (2.0) is a bit sluggish, but otherwise the car is fun to drive.

Pros

Love the handling, the gas mileage, the fact that people love the way it looks (especially older women....not sure what that's about), the reliability and the low cost of maintenance.

Cons

Can't think of any.

Fantastic Looking Car That Holds Its Value — I bought my 2007 Mazda 3 in 2012 with 70,000 miles on it. It is in great shape, runs VERY well, and has been nothing but a joy to drive. I find it amusing that women over the age of 50 LOVE the car and always make of point of complimenting it to me. The best part for me is that I feel like this car is a great investment since it has pretty much held its value for years. It's still a head-turner after 6 years, and it has wonderful gas mileage. This is definitely a keeper.

Pros

Quick, reliable,sporty, and has a ton of storage space. It's a five door!

Cons

Light weight causes it to be pushed around in stiff cross wind.

Great Little Hauler — Nothing I don't like. Reliabllity is awesome! This car has performed every function we have asked of it. It has lugged us to Florida three times and was packed solid. Mazda's are strong, well built cars. You won't be disappointed!

Mazda3 — Handles amazingly and all you need is some nice tires to stop on a dime Good highway miles, and okay miles in the city as long as you don't have a lead foot, else the miles gets a little low.

Highly Recommended Alternative To Your Honda Or Toyota Car. — A very comfortable car to drive everyday. Typical japanese reliability although the suspension feels abit weak and has too much squeaks even the dealer cannot isolate. Fuel economy is fair at around 8kms/liter. This has a 1600 a/t. Not bad for city driving.
