Mazda 3 Sport - poor mileage
By Susan on


2007 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Purchased car in June 2007, has been in the shop for poor mileage and squeaky brakes twice in less than a year. Mazda claims the car will get 31 m/gal city and 41 m/gal highway. The best I've gotten so far is 29 m/gal - this was obtained on an all highway road trip. Worst was 22 m/gal. Response from Mazda is that the mileage is considered normal??!! I will not buy another Mazda, they claim false numbers and will not stand by the product to find out what's wrong even when they agree there's a problem.

Best Features

I do enjoy the sport feel to the car, it's got great handling on corners and is peppy when it needs to be.

Worst Features

Improve the mileage, or post realistic numbers on the cars so new purchasers know what to expect.
