Great Car for the right driver
By Tom on


2008 Mazda Mazda3 New i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Overall, excellent choice and I'm very happy. I decided between this and the 2008 Toyota Corolla...my last car was a 1996 Toyota Corolla, which did the job, and got great mileage; was ready to move on though, and the Mazda3 had always caught my eye. Fun to drive, handles great, easy on the eyes; My 3 is blue with a beige interior. If you want a car to get you from point A to B that will never fail, with great mileage, get a corolla. The Mazda3 mileage isn't great (26 comb). I was getting 32 combined in my corolla. But...if you want a more all around package, go with the 3; no problems with it at all, and have gotten a lot of compliments on it; definitely feels a lot more expensive it is.

Favorite Features

1) Fun to Drive! 2) Great Looks! 3) Cloth interior nice! 4) Radio Instruments are sleek 5) Handling is spectacular 6) Comfortable 7) Reliability great to this point 8) Steering Wheel very sport and feels good to grip 9) Standard Rims are nice looking 10) has a quality build feel to it

Suggested Improvements

1) Center console too wide and gas pedal too close to it; my leg pushes up against the console while I'm driving; no big deal, I'm used to it. 2) Mileage not great; go easy on the gas pedal,makes a big difference 3) no keyless trunk opener 4) A/C weak 5) Floor mats seem cheap, wear easily
