I bought a 2004 Mazda 3 unexpectedly. Thought I liked the Mazda Protege,and test drove their new model. I liked it more than the Protege. I have it over a year, no problems, no complaints. A great car for the money. Very reliable. Fun to drive. Cute too!
My car says "Hello" when I turn it on.
back seat legroom isn't great. Trunk could be a little roomier, but it usually meets my needs.
