2010 Mazda 3 Hatchback s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

6000 mi update. I have this car for almost 7 month now, and I can’t get tired of it. Drives very well. Bluetooth is awesome. Just bought a roof rack and bike rack. Car looks even better. So far only one small issue, a loose rear stabilizer bar at 5000 mi, fixed quickly and without hassle. Previously own 07 Subaru impreza 2.5i and I can say that My Mazda 3 is much better car.


Best Features

Bluetooth, 6 speed manual, handling, interior.


Worst Features

Temperature gauge please.

2010 Mazda 3 Hatchback s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Overall a good value, Great styling and sporty, just hate the road noise, keep the radio up loud. very noisy on uneven pavement. Suspension on bumps is horrible. Would rather have bought German, vw or bmw, this car very light and tinny. Paint quality not great, chips easy. Had an 08 sedan, salesman told me it would be quieter? oh well, will have to live with it for a few years.Yes, there are many features that you will love. If they put in more insulation and better suspension they will have a superior product.


Best Features

Bluetooth, styling, interior illumination


Worst Features

More insulation, suspension, (road noise), paint quality

Review

I have had my Mazda 3 for a little over a year now. Since day 1, it has average around 15mpg. The car quivers at high speeds, has too much oversteer, and there has been a rattling sound coming from the steering column. After taking it in for service (at University Mazda in Seattle), they said that the fuel economy is due to the 'break in period' for the engine; they said it takes 15k miles for this to happen, which is total BS. The whole Mazda experience has been terrible, and I cant wait until my lease is up to get rid of this car.

Review

After four months I have finally found something to complain about. Watch out for the 17" low profile tires. Lots of construction this summer/fall around here, and as careful as I try to be, raised manhole covers on stripped streets waiting for resurfacing have already claimed 3 tires. And these tires are not cheap - $200 per pop! I've been driving for more than 30 years and this has never happened before, so I can only put it down to the low profile tires. On the plus side they do give amazing grip, and help the tremendous road holding of the 3.


Best Features

Performance, handling


Worst Features

Are the tires fragile, or have I just had a string of bad luck?

Review

Two words: Simply amazing! You aren't going to find anything out there that compares in performance, fun, and quality for the price. Take my word for it. I've spent a LOT of time driving everything possible within a 16000-21000 range. Get to your nearest dealer and drive one. You will love it!


Best Features

Interior, quickness, handling


Worst Features

Front end and rear end styling.
