Great size, inside & out. Good features on the Sport trim. Great steering & handling. Really like the increased power from the 2.5L versus the 2.0L.

All Around Great Car — Love the look of the car. Sporty. It performs that way as well. Super fun to drive. It's nimble and responsive in traffic. Easy to park, has held up really well with my two sons. The leather is nice everything wears really well. It still looks new and it's 5 years old. Good gas mileage.Oh man, I HATE the navigation system. So worthless. You'll spend more time trying to sort it out than it will take to drive to your destination. Grr Also, I did have to replace the shift assembly and drive belt recently but from what I hear that is not the norm. Been easy on maintenance otherwise. Back seat is very small. almost no leg room.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive. Low maintenance, good gas mileage. Adaptive headlights, also easy to maneuver in traffic

Cons: Nav system, little to no leg room in the back seat

Black 2008 Mazda3 Hatch — Great car! Bought it new and have never had an issue with it! Would highly recommend Mazda! Have added an aftermarket head unit with Nav and Bluetooth and tinted the windows. Has the 2.3L in it and has plenty of power. Handles incredibly well!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great hatchback, very reliable and roomy.  Would take it anywhere!

Cons: Some road noise and you can hear the intake.

Awesome Looks, Great Interior, Good Power, Mediocre Gas Mileage — This car looks great, handles well, has way more storage capacity than it looks like it would, excellent visibility, but only so-so on the gas mileage. It's something that I'm alright with, I would trade the few mpg to be able to punch the gas and instantly go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: With the rear seats folded down, this car is able to hold something the full length of a queen sized mattress (like the boxes to build a Queen sized bed frame from Ikea)

Cons: Being a non-skyactive model, in the city it will only get 17 mpg.  You have to use almost exclusively long-trip highway miles to get anywhere near 30mpg.

Good Car, Fun To Drive, Hatch Back Has A Lot Of Space — Purchased at the end of Feb 2011 with 28 miles, now at the end of Dec 2011 I have over 20,000 miles.

Performance - Plenty of power for passing on the highway Build Quality - The car has no noticable squeeks or rattles as of yet Cost of Ownership - I get about 27 mpg mostly highway Fun Factor - 6 speed manual is a lot of fun

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The cars handling is great

Cons: After 20,000 miles my tires are in no condition for winter in Chicago.

Way More Fun Than A Corolla Or A Civic — Best-in-class engine performance that harms fuel economy. Mazda is resolving that detriment in the next generation of engines. Firm but not punishing ride with handling that stands up to my A4's. Clean and functional inside and out. Build quality is very good and it is a very fun car to drive. I care nothing for prestige or size so this is a great car for me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Bang for buck.

Cons: Can't seem to get more than 26 mpgs when driving angelically.

Great Car, Comfortable And Performant — My wife and I share this car. We've had it for 3 months, and it's been great so far. It's comfortable, handles well, and it zooms. The backseat legroom isn't wonderful, and the mileage - well, did I mention the zoom? We don't drive that many miles because we commute to work on public transit, so mileage ended up being a secondary concern for us. The hatchback is great for moving stuff.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great handling/power. Comfortable interior

Cons: The fuel economy
