Poor Build Quality
By Koontz on
2010 Mazda 3 i SV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Had always been a Honda or Toyota person, but bought this due to great finance offers. Delivered with 3 small scratches on bottom of door but dealer insist it was done during the 48 hrs I had it. At 10,800 miles, hubcap comes off on interstate, and -- of course -- I had ran over something. Dealer says "we have 1 for $70!!" Nothing better for your bottom line than to make 8 or 900% profit on parts !! Already has wind noise and squeaks, wish Mazda would buy me out of it so I could get something else. Nowhere near as well built as I expected, and I'll never have another Mazda. Looks nice, runs ok, but that's about it. Gas mileage is very good, great brakes, but NO POWER LOCKS !!!
The audio controls on the steering wheel is a nice touch, ipod input is great
POWER DOOR LOCKS !!! Do without the ipod input and install the door locks. This is 2010, how can you sell a new car without them ??
