If You Dont Get In Accidents With This Car Or Drive Like A Jerk....this Car Is Awesome! — I honestly think my car is junk. Everyone else thinks its a good car cuz its only 4 years old but it needs a lot of repairs done to it cuz i have been neglecting her. She has over 50,000 miles on her cuz i drive ALOT! But i love to drive her cuz she is manual and pretty quick. Looking to do some repairs along with adding some horsepower by putting on a cold air intake when the weather breaks....super excited. Kinda glad she needs some work done cuz it gives me something to do! By the way...her name is Lola, thats why i refer to her as "she".

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its a manual trans and fun to drive and awesome gas mileage

Cons: Ya....the struts and the cv axles dont hold up in the car. already had to replace everything on the right side.

This Car Is Really Fun To Drive — this car is a great little car handles well. i only have this car 10 months but all that was needed since i bought her is a couple of oil changes. both interior is neat looking and exterior is ver nice as well although i think spoilers should be on every car. This car is a standard so gas milage is great i get 700km on a full tank This car is very fun to drive the only complaint is the radio is not loud enough..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: easy on gas and a sporty little car

Cons: factory speakers suck

Mazda3 Rev.. — Its quick responsive, the handling is exceptional, too bad its a 1.6L instead of a 2.0L, cheap for the details it has included, although a lot of rattles, but the quality of the materials seems good. The car has a sporty yet traditional look. Maintenance is a bit high, but its affordable and the gas mileage is above average. Sure is a fun to drive car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Zoom Zoom FTD = Fun to Drive

Cons: The noises it has everywhere

Best Deal I Could Have Gotten For 10k — The handling balance is the best I have encountered in anything this size - I even liked it better than the Pontiac Solstice. The 2.0 won't stop any hearts, but I average 35 mpg in the city, so I can't complain. A mild upgrade on the tires really brings out the aggressive side of the suspension tuning.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy, handling precision

Cons: If need a silent or limo-like ride

2006 Winning Blue Mazda 3 Sport — This car was great! Winning blue Sport. Lots of modifications available. I was able to install a Mazdaspeed grill with very little difficulty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Sporty, great room, great colour

Cons: Lots of tire and Road Noise.
