    Amazing. — I love my car, great pickup, and it's extremely pretty. Runs well, not too many problems with it. Apparently in our family we love them so much, that we bought 3 of the same cars. I love Mazdas. I'll definitely buy in the future.

    Pros: Pep, Looks, Overall quality

    Cons: Sluggish acceleration with ac on, Power steering problems with low battery

    It's A Great Young-family Car. — Gizmos galore - kind of pricey, but everyone drooled over the tawny leather interior and the integrated navigation. Performance: eeh. Cornering: not so much. I like our CX7 better for performance and handling. Strangely cheap interior carpeting. Dash lighting colors are kind of gimmicky.

    Pros: Beautiful inside and out. Deceptively large cargo capacity.

    Cons: Slow off the line - corners like it's on stilts.

    Not What You Would Think. — Most people would not call a Mazda3 fun and exciting, but they probably have not driven one. This car is very quick and the handling is acceptable. With the right upgrades this car can be more then one would think!

    Pros: Looks, Power, Upgrades

    Cons: Handling (tilts too much when going into corners)

    My New Car — 1.6 engine, good acceleration, good brakes and good handling. Good shape and looks good and the outside, nice and comfortable on the inside. Quite cheap to run at least it has been so far. Definitely a fun car to drive.

    Pros: It's lush

    Cons: Atm I don't know

    Mazda 3 — Although it's probably the most common model in Israel nowadays, I still find my blue Mazda 3 unique. It's very good on the road and despite the fact I don't drive as much as I used to, the total experience with it is excellent.

    Pros: Great car.

    Cons: Perhaps a bit too common.

    Mazda 3 — My baby is reliable, cute and excellent value for money for a single person household. One person feels comfortable in using it and it rather nicely accommodates 4 people and luggage. Handles nicely, unfortunately slightly noicy inside. Maintenance cost is ok and as a Japanese car Mazda 3 is very good quality. Fun factor reasonable... could be better. Nevertheless, realiable and good value for money.

    Pros: Excellent value for money, appearance is modern, maintenance costs reasonable

    Cons: Noice inside the car is quite high

    Guppie's Mazda3 — I picked up the Mazda3 after coming from a WRX and a Protege primarily as a commuter (around 40kms each way). So far, it's been a fantastic car. Performance is pretty good for a 4cyl - really likes to rev. It's very quiet on the highway, gets reasonable milage and has a rather comfy cabin. Build quality so far has been excellent. Good panel gaps, solid doors, well finished interior. Bottom line - I'd buy another

    Pros: low price, fun to drive, excellent interior, low cost of ownership

    Cons: Could be a little better on milage
