I bought the 3i to get the price a
little lower. I did have the Power
package and 16" alloy wheels added.
Aside from the slightly bigger engine
and fog lights, the 3i is no different
than the 3s. Its a fun car with great
handling and performance.
Steering wheel controls for radio and
cruise are standard as well as cd
player. Car looks good inside and out.
Unsure how the glove box will hold up.
It has enough room for an extra person
but its craftmanship seems to be
The mazda3 s is my first car. I've had
experiance driving my brothers Corolla
S and after he had a chance to drive my
Mazda he sold his car and got a Mazda3
as well. I think it's safe to say that
my whole family is happy with the
mazda3. My father also owns a Mazda
Miata, in which he is also happy with.
My favorite features include the
moonroof and 6 disk cd player which i
have controls for on my stearing
wheel. They come in handy for a new
The interior fabric seems to catch
every peice of dirt and the doors tend

Bought this car after extensive research. I was
looking for a compact Japanese car after all the
troubles I had with my German engineered Golf. I
didn't like the styling of the Civic or the Corolla-
too bland. After looking at the reviews on Edmunds
I decided to take the Mazda 3 for a testdrive.
Driving dynamics are excellent. Handles very well
and the interior quality and styling is excellent.
Good pickup (2.3L engine). I bougt my car 6 weeks
ago and so far no problems. Very happy with my
decision. Highly recommended if you are in the
market for a compact car.
Steering wheel controls, Handling, Love the xenons,
very comfortable seats- go for the leather.
Daytime driving lights, Auto lock feature on door
locks, low fuel warning alarm rather than just the
light, one touch autoup feature on drivers window.
Fun car to drive. Some things can be
fixed for the 2005's but for the price
I payed i can't complain to much.
Overall the I love the car. Great
craftsmanship both inside and out. Not
many people have discovered the Mazda
3 so their are not many on the road
just yet and thats one thing i like as
I like the overall safety feel I have
with airbags all around me. slick
disign of the car looks good. Great
The AC needs to be a bit colder, its
constantly on high during the day and
can't seem to overcome the hot sun
while driving. The trunk is also hard
to open because it doesn't have
anthing to grab to open it. Car attena
is to long and looks goofy on the
highway with it wiggling fast.
This beautiful new Mazda might as well
be a trojan horse of horror in a pretty
package. After 3 attempts to fix my
car, I had to have it replaced for
being a lemon. 4 days after acquiring
my replacement I was being towed
because my clutch broke. So as hot
looking as this new Mazda is& as
fun& exciting it is to drive; my
question is, how long will the fun last
Good Pick up, curbs well, great audio
