I thought I would follow-up on my original review. My 2005 Mazda 3 now has 175,000 miles and is still driven everyday to work. The drivers side wheel bearing went bad again so I had both front wheel bearings replaced. At around 150,000 miles I replaced the original shocks and struts with KYB aftermarket units. The body has started to rust in a few spots around the rear fenders and I think its worth getting those spots fixed. The ignition switch needs to be replaced as it thinks the key is inserted all the time which renders the wireless remote useless. The interior still looks good and shows very little wear. Overall I have been very happy with my 3 and when it comes time to retire this car I may very well be looking at a 2014 Mazda 3.Report it
