Overall:

This car is amazing, the clutch feels very smooth. MPG is great too, on highway I get around 41mpg and street feels about 33-34mpg. It came with 9 premium Bose speakers that make your car feel like you’re in a concert. The back seats move down, so i can put my surfboard in the back. It feels very comfortable and sporty at the same time with the black leather seats, red stitching and carbon fiber accents. The sun roof and rain guard is also great for wanting a little bit of a fresh breeze without having a loud windy noise above the car. I plan to add a few modifications, change out the headlights with white LED’s, add a rear diffuser and thats really it. Great car overall, I highly recommend.

Overall:

Very responsive car. Handles great and is well appointed on the interior. Suspension is fairly stiff over low speed choppy surfaces but comes alive at higher speeds. Electronics and controls ergonomic and easy to use. Body lines create slight blind spot but is more than compensated for through mirror lighted monitoring light.

Overall:

I bought a 2014 Mazda 3s Grand touring I absolutely love it. I feel like the engineers at Mazda make cars to drive and not only that enjoyable to drive. The 184 horsepower engine has enough pep to get you moving, but also 37 miles per gallon helps you on the highway. The car is also very lightweight and maneuverable and is just a pleasure to drive. I think the tech package in the Mazda 3 is the best Ive seen at any car of that level. I prefer the hatchback because of the ease of loading things and out of the back. This is my second Mazda 3 and Ill most likely be buying another one in the future. This is by far the best hatchback on the market.

Its a great car overall that is far better tea I expected. I compared it to a friends Honda Civic and he was jealous of my vehicle. I truly do love the performance, style and handling.

"Minimal difference,more personal preference than anything else."
Value Ranked 2014 Nissan Sentra worse.
"Quality first and foremost.Followed closely by Reliability.Who wants to purchase a new vehicle and start encountering problems within 6 months due to poor design and subpar assembly techniques?.....NOT me,Especially when all you get from the manufacturer is Too Bad,So Sad,despite their never ending empty rhetoric of what a valued customer you are."

Overall:

Great Car, Fun To Drive, Excellent Fuel Economy — I wish I had gotten the next model up with rear view camera and fog lights. The light colored seat fabric shows stains easily. Wishing for leather too. All wheel drive would be nice but it would be more expensive and cost mileage to suffer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The 3 is a great practical economy car with sporty styling, great quality, and fun driving experience. I bought a manual which is a bit more fun to drive. Fuel average overall has been over 36. We did get well over 40 on a couple of highway trips.

Cons: It's an economy car so it's tough to fit luggage, the kids, and the dogs.
As fun as a manual transmission is it is also a pain if you don't use the Bluetooth.
