The 2010 Mazda 3 rides firm, but that's because the responsive suspension is tuned for agile driving. The optional dynamic stability control serves to further smooth or sharpen the ride characteristics. A nice contribution to the genre of "driver's cars" pretending to be family sedans.
I would actually recommend this car for someone who won't have people in the backseat very often. It is a small car and exactly what I was looking for (and more) for our second vehicle, but it would be too small for a family car unless everyone is under 5'5". My 6'2" honey can squeeze in fairly comfortably in the driver's seat, but only the dogs can fit in the seat behind him. It's perfect for zipping around the city and squeezing in small parking spots.
The 2011 Mazda 3 is the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned! Not only does it have a sleek, attractive appearance, it handles well on the road, good on gas and can handle a rough situation or 2 (potholes, driving in the snow, bumps and bruises) and still come out shining without breaking or bending. Just keep this baby regularly maintained with oil changes and you will be good.
