Really want to love it, but...

2010 Mazda 3 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


2nd review on this vehicle.
At first I couldn't say enough good things about it, but the good feeling is gone.
Clutch completely destructed at 38K and warranty is only for 12K.
I got over 100K on my pervious honda clutch and it was not a $1350 dealer quote to fix it.
This is not an uncommon occurance with numerous postings on the web with an average malfunction mileage of 28K...on a year old car no less.
Now, my driver side door and hatchback will not unlock with remote, key, or manually.
Needless to say, I am not going to continue to climb into the car from the passanger side and lower the rear seats to gain access to the trunk.

I just cannot recommend this vehicle anymore.

Best Features

Great to drive on twisty roads, nice interior for price.

Worst Features

Better mpg, door locks, and clutch, clutch, clutch. 36K warranty for electronics is not good.
