Reviews for Mazda Mazda3
Great with one twist
It is a great car overall, but as someone allergic to pets, after purchasing the vehicle I started noticing I was getting itchy every time I got in the vehicle, only to find the back seats were riddled with pet hair. needless to say, lots of work in front of me!
Excellent Fuel Efficient Budget Driver's Car
If this car is purchased with the 5-speed manual transmission, This little compact will surely bring smiles. I have the 2.3 liter motor. The car will not win any drag races or any other types of 'crazy' aggressive street driving. But in everyday real life, I greatly appreciate it's balance of USEABLE performance, straight tracking, crisp handling, and it's ability to make normal commutes and boring drives fun and interesting. This car, like most small engine non-turbo cars comes to life around 3k RPM and surges well up to about 60 miles an hour. 2nd Gear for me has been the most fun! The clutch is light and easy to modulate and pickup is predictable and linear. The shifter is smooth but you still feel a tiny little "snick" as you put it in gear. My only complaint, if any, is that there is a little play and vagueness going into 5th gear. (but mind you this is NOT sports car). When going around corners, the car has a surprising willingness to turn and there is little body roll with such a factory setup. At times, I even find myself bracing my body to keep up with the car and often times, the car wins as i feel myself slid out the seat. That's the only indicator that I may be pushing things a little bit much ;) With this car and my somewhat constant aggressive driving, I average 24mpg in mixed commute traffic daily. On the highway cruising in 5th (around 70-75mph) I get about 26-27 depending on hills and traffic conditions. I'm going by my trip computer calculations. My only complaint about this car is that it is soooo quiet at low rpm. I constantly have to monitor the tachometer to see where the engine is, and I really don't hear the motor until I reach 3.5K rpm..but once again, it's just my personal preference. Also, I have noticed a little bit of corrosion on some metal parts around the door hinges and hood latch. I addressed that with some WD-40. Other than that, this car is an excellent purchase and if it is well maintained, will give you smiles well past 100k miles. To have the most fun and use most of the engine's midrange power, I highly recommend shifting for yourself and not letting a fancy hydraulic slush box sap all this motor's power!
Most Reliable Car
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.
