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.
I am always so surprised at how well thought out the car is. I never find my self wishing something was easier to reach or use.
It really is just a nice car. Looks nice, feels nice, drives nice, great gas mileage with plenty of power. Will definitely be buying Mazda again.
Simplified and perfect,

Mazdas have always been amazing cars to me. It doesn't have a lot of fancy features, but if you prefer simplicity and reliability over flash, this is the car you should get. Before this one, I had another Mazda 3 which was unfortunately totaled, but the side airbags deployed quickly and prevented me from getting seriously hurt. These cars have never given me any problems mechanically and continue to be reliable!
