2015 Mazda Mazda3Trapper MA - The Treasure Coast, FL10/16/2016
Because the car gets great gas mileage, and drives very comfortable. I am used to power seats. With the 6 position driver seat and adjustable lumbar support, I found my seat position with the 6 position adjustable driver seat, I was lucky to have a positon or two that fits. Otherwise, the car is so much fun drive. I also notice with the dimensions of the car, the I Touring Mazda 3 gets few if any dings from other car doors because if you center the car in the parking space, You are as far from other cars.
the grand touring model has everything. The only thing I don't like is the power. It feels really weak. I'm always dragging behind in traffic. And I love the thrill of power. But aside from that this car is fantastic. Above average steering and handling. And I know first hand how well a Mazda 3 will handle a crash (very well). And it does get really good gas mileage. I get about 400 miles a tank or more, half city, half country. If this car just had a little more hp, it has 155hp, if it had just 180 i would give it 5 stars. If it had 200 or more then i wouldn't want anything else.
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.
