2010 Mazda 3 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I just picked the car up yesterday so the relilability rating is a guess. But it has a nice interior design, good gas mileage, and the engine seems to have more pep than the civic ex-l I tested. I love the streaming bluetooth audio feature. With an iphone (or any other that has apps I guess) being able to stream pandora, or ESPN radio app, or AOL radio through the bluetooth it almost negates the need for satellite radio. I like the suspension (a little tight) and the sport shift is nice. A comfy, good gas car, with a little pep and nice enough look. So far so good!


Best Features

streaming bluetooth audio, interior design (everything handy), upgraded stereo and moonroof.


Worst Features

Trip computer should do gas mileage, and miles remaining on tank at this trim level.

2010 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Just bought this little beauty for my wife and we absolutely love it! Drive this, then go drive a BMW 328 and I'm pretty sure you'll find it difficult to justify spending another 15K for little more than luxury brand image. Mazda built one heck of a car. Only complaint is lack of standard IPOD integration -- bluetooth is great though so we just stream music through our iphones (the bose stereo is worth the extra $). For a compact the mileage may not be what most expect, but if you want 4 or 5 more mpg buy a Civic (great car too), but you'll miss out on the great character and the hell this car can raise on the road!


Best Features

Driving Enthusiasts Car, Handles like a great weekend track car and suspension is still surprisingly supple, Solid feel of everything, rich materials and textures, sweet sounding bose stereo, bluetooth, great seats, near perfect ergonomics, cargo space w/hatchback


Worst Features

standard ipod integration -- but bluetooth takes care of this if you have the right type of cell phone. Mazda, change nothing else!

2010 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

The 2008 GT was a good car with luxury items patched on to it. The 2010 GT is an improved car ( Horse Power, Handling , HWY Gas Mileage , Front Lights,Styling ) with the Luxury items designed in from the start. The steering wheel human interface for the Audio / NAV / Driving Metrics are first rate. Dual Zone Temp Control/ Heated Seats / Push Button Start / Bose Sound are all executed in fine fashion. At $25K- $26K you have a BMW Handling / Acura Electronics Sporty- Luxury car. The Acura TSX costs about 32K and is a "floater" in terms of Handling. $25 K might buy you a BMW hub cap. Like the Dodge-Hemi Charger this car makes those who spent lots more for a similar car feel strange.


Best Features

Push Button Start/ Excellent Seats / Exterior Styling. And most importantly the Luxury and Human Interface systems were designed into the car and not patched on. They kept the legendary M3 handling and added a true luxury cabin experience.


Worst Features

The city mpg trends towards 23. 25 mpg city would be nice. Highway road noise improvement. Leave the Radio on until the driver door is opened. Make the upgraded mirror a part of the NAV package Add some type of understated GT badging Add engine temp gauge.

2010 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I love this little mazda 3 GT. It is extremely fun to drive with great handling and decent fuel economy. It never feels like it lacks power and it constantly turns peoples heads. Plus the amount of standard features this car has makes 50,000 dollar luxury cars look mad.


Best Features

The AFS lighting is amazing.


Worst Features

200 HP like in the VW GTI would be nice, or possibly a dual clutch transmission

2010 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Like fine wine, the mazda 3 gets better with age and design. Wow, what a great car. I originally purchased a 2007 model and loved it. I recently traded up for the 2010 model. This is the only make and model I have owned on two separate occasions. It rides like a champ! Mazda is superior to Toyota, Nissan and Honda. The sales team at Cory Fairbanks Mazda made the purchase stress free without the "high pressure" tactics I have experienced in the past. Awesome vehicle!!!


Best Features

Interior seems more spacious. More power and the handling is instant and responsive. The exterior design gives a more robust and sleek look. It is like driving a UFO. It's luxurious and sporty without the luxurious and sporty price.


Worst Features

Mazda should add the "push button start", Bose audio and GPS driving directions as standard equipment.
