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


I have owned my Mazda 3 for three months now. I noticed immediately that the paint chips off very easily. Today, I have more than 20 large paint chips on the side panels with no explanation. The dealer examined it and has told me it is simply from road debris. I have owned many new cars and have never had one lost its paint so easily. The paint used is not a quality paint. The dealer will tell you after the purchase that you need to buy a costly paint protection package to keep the paint in good shape. $22000 later, I have a car that looks pretty bad and has lost value because of the chips. Also, the dealer is having to replace the dash because it was black, but turned milky white.

Best Features

Cute car. Like the bluetooth feature. That is about all the good I can say.

Worst Features

Quality paint should be used. Better quality materials inside would be nice.
