2009 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I made the mistake and believed Edmunds when they talked up the Mazda3.
I bought a 2009 Mazda3 with 10K miles.
I am very sorry I did.
The car is covered with very low quality materials.
The carpet and upholstery are of the lowest quality I have ever seen.
The body panels are like aluminum foil.
You do not want to lean on your car.
The trunk latch is all plastic.
The huge irritant I have now is the driver's seat.
It squeaks horribly whenever I adjust my position even a little bit.
Dealer can't fix and Mazda refuses to replace seat.
I am looking for a after-market replacement.
Do not buy any Mazda if you care about quality.
Thanks, Edmunds, for nothing.
