You'll never want to buy another car!

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


I owned my 2005 Mazda3i for just over a year before it was totaled. I'm still mourning the loss of this car & with any luck will purchase another soon. I bought my mazdda3 used with 100,000 miles and drove it for 22,000 more. This car is extremely reliable, never had any problems with it (which is great since it had been in 2 minor accidents before I got it). Gas mileage was excellent -mostly highway driving usually got around 30 mpg which is great for a college student's budget! My only complaint (aside from the lack of any real space needed when I was moving) was that around 110,000 miles it began to shake when it idled, before that it was smooth sailing. You can't go wrong buying this car

Best Features

My mazda3 was a shiftable automatic, which is a fun feature I havn't seen in other cars that I looked at.

Worst Features

This car could use more back seat leg room, or more room in general. Definitely not a car for anyone who has frequent backseat riders.
