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


6000 miles and 2 oil changes in and the car is still a blast to drive. The 2.5L is more than adequate for any driving style; averaging 29-30mpg with some fairly spirited driving city/hwy mix. The car has fairly large blind spots which you have to keep in mind when driving; However, I haven't found it that much of a bother. If you do your own oil changes, you will love the drain/ filter setup mazda uses. The materials in the cabin feel like what you would expect in vehicles in higher price brackets; Much better that what i've seen in the vehicles in this class. The seats are excellent; I don't mind staying in the drivers seat for a few hours at a time. Overall a great choice.
