    Great Car For The Money Probably Nothing Better — i really like the handling of this car and the fuel economy as well, loved the manual transmission as it made the car fun to drive. Only draw back i have come to notice is the car can be a little loud on the highway but that's to be somewhat expected for the price range

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: excellent fuel economy, excellent value, great all around commuter car

    Cons: little loud

    Great Small Car With Bigger Car Features And Performance — First of all, the gas mileage is incredible. Having owned a Prius (that felt like a brick compared to this Mazda3), I do drive in a conservative manner that yields 35-36 mpg in my mixed highway/city driving. Two trips of around 200 miles each way gave me 39-40 mpg, depending on the wind.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This Mazda3i Grand Touring is fun to drive, riding well and handling competently

    Cons: Visibility could be better. Tom-Tom GPS is less intuitive than my portable Garmin unit.

    This Car Is Outstanding In Every Way! — I love the gas mileage and handling of this car. I was surprised by the amount of room and the great sound system. It has the convenience package which is nice for keyless entry and locking as well as an alarm mode.

    Pros: Great looking Mazda 3.  Excellent gas mileage and lots of room.  Very quick.

    Cons: It is very quick and may surprise you when you step on the gas.

    Zoom-zoom — Still have a lot to learn about the new car, but I am pleased with the technology like the screen that shows you current gas mileage and integrated bluetooth. Love the keyless entry buttons on the doors and push to start without use of the key.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice upgrade from the 1998 Ford I used to have, still learning about the new Mazda, but I love the technology. Bluetooth integrated into the car is a must! Love the grill that smiles :)

    Cons: Not as much "pick up and go" as my V6 :/
