Sporty, Nimble, Comfortable, Gas Efficient Beauty — Overall, a great car, I would definitely get another one in the future. Considering how sporty it is with it's 2.5 liter engine, it gets great gas milage. The interior is roomy and the seats are comfortable. So far it has been very reliable, I've never had to take it to the shop.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fun to drive, lots of pep and great handling. Very compfy adjustable driver's seat. With the back seats folded down there's lots of cargo room. Very nice Bose sound system.

Cons: There is a little more road noise than I would like.

A Great First Car. — The handling before I installed my lowering springs has to be best in class of the segment. After the lowering springs of course the handling was even better. A great car to start autocross in. Its also a great car to just take people around in and runabout town. I got mine with an automatic as opposed to the manual, but I do not regret it. The sequential gearbox is satisfying and the automatic is fine if I have another car. The power is adequate for the car, but when hauling more people around it becomes sluggish. The style is on the feminine side, but its really all about the comfort. The seats are average. Fuel economy could be better, but Mazda has already fixed this with the new Skyactiv.

Pros: Handling, quality

Cons: Brakes, fuel economy

Buy It--you Won't Regret It! — The 2010 Mazda3 S Grand Touring Hatchback excels at most everything it tries. Performance is good, with ample acceleration and power when you want it. The 4-disc ABS brakes provide ample stopping power, and the handling is superb save the fact it should come with Falken performance tires to add better grip and stability in corners. Build quality is superb as to be expected from Mazda. The aggressive styling is also a plus, especially with the Aero package. The only thing I would change are those front fenders. Cost of ownership is good: fuel economy mainly highway ranges from 315-380 mpg, and maintenance is reasonable. Just plan for servicing 4 brakes instead of two. The best part is that it's really fun to drive, especially in the automatic with manual sport mode.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A diamond in the rough--fun to drive, aggressive styling, excellent quality, great gas mileage, low maintenance cost, with the functionality of a hatchback to boot.

Cons: The *only* thing I can complain about is it needs more power stock, an in-between for the base M3 and the Mazdaspeed3.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very good handling, quick, reliable, good looking interiors.

Cons: road noise

Fun To Drive In City And On Highway — This car is nice and fun to drive with acceleration of 0-60 mph in 11 sec, not much but gets to job done. The 2L engine gives you 150hp @ 6500 rpm and 170 ft-lb of torque @ 6000rpm. The interior look is one of the bests in its class. Fuel economy is great with 8L/100KM in the city and 6L/100KM on the highway. Costs you about $1500/year on gas, if gasoline is at a $1 per liter.

Pros: interior look & styling

Cons: no torque power (no low end power)

Good Value & Excellent Utility — Performance- It's not the Speed3 but it is fun to drive & there is plenty of get up & go in the 4 banger. Fairly quite except under hard excelleration. Build Quality - Outside was a 5 out of 5. The inside is a 4 out of 5. The seats are a little to stiff & while material quality is good, there is room for improvement. Appearance - Let's just say the front grows on you. It looks best in all black as it reduces the impact of the smile. Personally I liked the old front end. The back is fine, but the tail light housing sticks out & could be a costly replacement. Fun Factor - 4 out of 5

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive, very useful & decent MPG

Cons: Appearance has to grow on you

Mazda Keeps The Tradition. — Everything outstanding, maybe a little better plastic supports. Strong 2.5l engine may need intake and exhaust to put it where I wanted. Comfortable seats, very good handling in corners, upgrade short shift 6 speed makes it ideal, and fun, to go to work.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The six speed tranny is fun to drive.

Cons: nothing significant.
