2008 Mazda 3 New i Touring Value 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this Mazda3 based mainly on previous professional reviews for its reliability, agility and fuel mileage. Plus, I really liked the exterior styling. After driving some 6000 miles I've found that the ride is jittery, choppy and generally unrefined. It always feel like there is a wheel out of balance or tire out of round. Both motor mounts where replaced and a 4 wheel road force balance but there is still a lot of engine shake felt through the steering wheel and chassis. I wouldn't buy again.

Best Features

Exterior styling, handling/agility, fuel mileage

Worst Features

Engine transmits too much shake through steering wheel and chassis. Suspension needs refinement. Standard AM/FM/CD needs better sound quality and improved reception. Offer more than black interiors.
