2009 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This car is 9 years old now, so review maybe not relevant. I've owned since New, has been very reliable and all maintenance has been standard as the car ages. Love this car and will be sorry to replace it.

2009 Mazda 3 s Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Love the car, have owned it since new. 2.3L engine plenty powerful for hills and highway. Manual 5 speed provides plenty of control, great handling and acceleration. Did replace a broken spring at 156,000 and struts, shocks at 146,000. Dealer aftermarket leather seats not the most comfortable on long trips. Only complaint on this car has been the TPMS - tire pressure monitor sensors. Have replaced 6 of them starting at 32,000 miles. Clearly a defect but dealer wouldn't stand behind them.

2009 Mazda 3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

That is is fine for a city car but gets uncomfortable quick. The steering wheel is hard, the seats are uncomfortable. Within mos of buying it the visor broke off, the truck interior latch broke. I had a wreck in my neighborhood (a lady pulled away from the curb right into me), I was going no more than 15 MPH and the whole left front end crumpled in. Pretty scary.

Review

Middle-of-the-road in most ways. Would not likely buy again.
