I have owned Toyota Celica's, a Honda CRX, and a couple of Subaru wagons. This car is the best one that I've ever owned.
When looking to buy a new car a couple of years ago, I researched the Honda Fit, the Toyota Corolla and Matrix, Subaru Impreza. This car was the most fun to drive by far, and my father has had excellent reliability with his Mazda's. Nothing but oil changes through 150k miles.
After a bunch of research and test driving, what finally sold me on the car was the combination of reliability, decent fuel economy, and pleasure when driving. I thought it interesting that among the drivers for Car and Driver magazine, a majority owned a newer Mazda3, because it is the best car for people who enjoy driving for the relatively low price.

Looks great. Drives and handles great. You will feel some bumps because of the sports suspension and stiff chassis. Lots of creature comoforts. Nav screen is small, but the system is easy to use and works very well. The blutooth through the audio system allows for voice dialing, which is convenient (and safe). The only things I don't like are minor and has nothing to do with build quality or how it drives: 1) No USB connection to play music from a flash drive; 2) No dedicated IPod connection...have to buy and install special adapter; 3) No heated mirrors. I bought it knowing about the lack of heated mirrors, but assumed it would have IPod and USB, like most cars do these days.
Overall, love the car. Get lots of compliments on it. The fit and finish are top notch, the car is well built. Lots of fun to drive. If you like sporty, fast cars, this is a great, inexpensive car.
