Overall Good Buy — Great car loved using it. Great both on surface streets and just hate it cost more to insure than either my yukon or tahoe. very expensive to repair. great gas milage and nice size trunk too, I would probably upgrade to a cx-7 or 9 too be able to have great fun and power and still carry more people.

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.

Pros

Interior and exterior are decent to look at. Cheap and good gas mileage.

Cons

Not powerful, not a muscle, not anything to brag about or show off.

Average But Nice — This is just a basic car. Nothing special. It runs fine, it looks fine, but it isn't a car that anyone would buy because it has potential to be as badass as a charger or something. Average for a car.

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

the Mazda is a great on fuel economy, Especially highway mile. much of the miles have been highway. it is a nice looking Hatchback, The best handling car I have ever owned. the engine is spunky and quick. Very low maintenance, other than regular maintenance and tires. Has good Bridgestone performance tires, and handles well in snow and wet.  Comfortable car for travel nsd great handling

Cons

Not a family car and our family is growing, we hate to get rid of it it is to small for out growing family

Clean — Really no dislikes. I did a lot of research before buying it most of the review i saw were complimentary , not only the Mazda 3 sport hatchback but this individual automobile. Great handling, acceleration and braking. The gas mileage is excellent plus a very attractive car, just to small for our needs right now.

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!

Good Looker, No Substance. — It may look like a fast car, but don't be fooled! It is severly underpowered! Great example of all show and no go.
