"Drives like it did the day we bought it, and it was six years old 3 years ago. Normal wear and tear and service is all I've had to do to it in terms of service and repairs. The only thing wrong with it is my exhusband's aftermarket door locks stopped working and my dad's cheap aftermarket lights are no good.Surprise surprise. I am having the factory lights re-installed. Love this car. You will pry it from my cold dead hands. Maybe."

"I purchased the car used and have put about 100k miles on it, and have had very few complaints. The Mazda3 is fun to drive, fuel efficient, sporty, and still looks good at 11 years old. Reliability is above average. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely still have purchased this vehicle."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Bought with 22,000 miles from original owner. Now at 117,000. Replace one motor mount and a fuel/oxygen sensor plus normal things that wear out. Great handling, heated seats work well, Bose system is great and factory navigation is nice. With dedicated snow tires it does well in snow. I've had 5 Mazda 3 cars and they have all been top notch. Got two friends to by them as well and they love them."
