Very happy with the lovely 3
By ylli on
2010 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I leased this mazda 3 August 2010. I really love the brilliant handling and the comfort seat and ride. Steering is very fast and precise.
I guess for the price, you can't find other car in the class with better driving experience.
I did do some autocross with this car. Even on all season tire, it can still shine.
I also did a few 800 mile journey, it is comfortable enough that I can drive 13 hrs straight in the car.
The down side would be so so fuel economy, I normally average 23-24 mpg in town, barely 30 mpg driving on highway.
Also the build quality could be slightly improved. My car did develop a slight rattle at the back of the car at around 5000 miles.
Overall, i am very happy.
