Overall:

It appears that vehicle had been in an accident and the front right fender is damaged. There is no AC, no sunroof/moonroof and other options described (Bluetooth, alloy wheels , steering mount controls). Exhaust needs to be fixed.

Mazda 3 I sport is a nice model but I really wanted the Mazda 3 s Grand touring due to it having leather seats. But I have to say the cloth seats are nicer then expected. They dont feel or look cheap.

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.
