Already Rusting???
By Nae on


2005 Mazda 3 i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased my 2005 Mazda the winter of 2004 love everything about the car, the feel of the car on the road, the suspension is tight, it has great get up and go for 2.0 and great gas mileage. It could use better interior lighting i.e. the window controls need more lighting and the my cigarette lighter light went out already? In 2007 I noticed my 2005 mazda 3i was beginning to rust around rear wheel wells and the undercarriage. I have taken my car into numerous Mazda dealerships for rust problem and have been told due to environmental factors they will not fix the corrosion? I highly doubt I will purchase another due to exterior quality it sad everything else is great about this little car.

Best Features

Great gas mileage, great preformance, seems reliable.

Worst Features

Better lighting controls around window and power locks on the door panels.
