2011 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
To the person that wants rims and not hubcaps--buy ANY trim level except the very cheapest and you have alloys? That's a no brainer - The 2011 is near exactly the same as the 10 but the rear headrests tilt and they added a Moonroof/Bose pac as standard on all GT trims so the only upgrade it the tech which they toyed with by trading the aforementioned for the Xenons, Leds and rain sense wipers + auto headlight. Also switched to Synthetic 0W-20 oil! good move! Great car others pale, a honda fit? please 15" rims -zzz , I love the design as its grown on me and quite frankly I'm sick of insecure people that need mean looking cars , the smile is great! as is the car!
Road Manners, Price , Smile ,Synthetic Oil 0W-20 opposed to 2010 model had mineral oil was 5W-20. Great Power for the mileage . Maintenance is the lowest of possibly any gas car on the market -add it up 100K-coolant,Plat plugs-100K oil-10K timing chain never needs replacement! super duper.
They added a warm-up light thats blue til the car is at running temp but dang it Mazda please give us a temp gauge -please- Guy above was right dipstick stinks like rotted clams - you couldn't read it if you knew Sanskrit. Useless. And I tried everything- IT cannot be accurately read -
