Overall:

Great Buy For The Price, And Fun To Drive. — Great performance for a 2.0L. The fuel economy can average over 40mpg highway. Interior quality is very good for a intro level car. Exterior styling was risky, but it stands out. Very fun to drive. I would've rather gotten the 2.4L turbo.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap & fun

Cons: Not the most powerful

Overall:

Little White Beast — This car is phenomenal. Though it only has 167 Hp this car can beat a Corvette, Mustangs, and even some AMGs and M series. Its fully loaded and has everything that luxury brands have but at a Mazda price. I would say that the closest competitor to this car would have to be a Lexus IS in terms of looks, performance, luxuries, etc. but I would choose this car over the IS any day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything for the most part

Cons: Would love to see this car have 200+ Hp and not have to be a Mazdaspeed version to be so.

Very Good Car With A Very Bad Design!! — What happen with Mazda in this design. The Cars was a good children movie but to put the actual smile on the front of the new Mazda was a big mistake! It's a well done car with nice quality trim. Drive like a cheap BMW ( Keep doing it Mazda ). Nice car but the smile...not a fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very good quality car

Cons: The smile!!! of the front bumper

Test Drive — I test drove the Mazda 3 and I loved the handling, acceleration, dashboard and appearance. I ended up not buying it because of the gas mileage. If I get a car that small, it should get 35 mpg. I guess power has its price, but I figured I would be happier with more room for the same mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

2010 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring HatchbackReview
Appearance:
Performance:
Quality:
Overall:

Good Choice For Someone Looking For A Low Cost, Sporty Ride. — Above average ride quality( sporty and firm) with a properly weighted steering. Accleration could be better on the low end by adding 20 to 30 extra horses.Still manages Low 7 sec 0 to 60MPH. Manual gear is above average with short and direct throw. Gets little balky when it is warmed up. Typical front wheel drive understeer through out tight to long radius turns. Easily modulated with the throttle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Value for bucks

Cons: GPS.....Too small and the voice prompt is too intrusive.

Mazda3 5-door Hatch — Low end torque is immense. Really high revs. Very sturdy car, tight steering. The semi-auto transmission isn't that great. Pretty fuel efficient. The exterior styling..kinda looks like a fish. Inside is great. Even though the seats are cloth, it's still nice. And this car is extremely fun to drive

Pros: Fun to drive, quick, tight

Cons: Styling, 4 cylinders

Yes Fun — She handles great especially country backroads. Hate the bucket seats for long distance (60minutes +) driving. Only places that equip vehicles for handicapped are liscensed to modify the seat. Hips should be as high or higher than your knees. Wish I could reach into backseat from drivers place. 34mpg currently. The black interior needs to come with a lint brush. Pretty picky things, all in all. Fun, yes!
