For the average college student this car perfect. Great gas mileage without the cost of feeling sluggish. the CVT transmission makes it a smooth ride, and the car's acceleration is enough for people who want to feel quick. Trunk and cargo space allows you to haul around 3 other people and have plenty of comfortable space.
This year of Mazda 3's are easily maintained, and have very few recalls. The ones that exist are minor blemishes.
Great little sports car. Good sport suspension, confortable bucket seats, great sports 6 speed manual transmission. Love the engine sound and the dual exhaust system. You can really feel that turbo kick in!
Caution: If you're looking for a smooth, confortable and quiet ride and great gas mileage, this car is not for you...!
The Only Right Choice for this Segment
2014 Mazda Mazda3Will - St. Louis, MO03/30/2015
This is the best handling and best looking car in the segment. It has an adequate amount of power but another 20 horsepower would go a long way. Although the trade off is the exceptional fuel economy. The stock tires create a little too much road noise on rough surfaces but nicer tires can always be installed. The fact of the matter is that if you enjoy driving and need a good commuter than this is the only choice.
