2011 Mazda 3 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5A)


Bought this last month and has put on 600 miles. Had to say goodbye to our 2000 year Ford Taurus, it's working fine but we relocated to SF bay area and parking was a headache. My wife is the main driver and she feels happy to make this "size" change: enough acceleration, relative spacious interior and trunk, stylish inside and out, and the parking can never be easier. The first two tanks averaged ~25MPG, mostly local with heavy traffics. Looking to keep this car for long time and we expect it to be no less reliable as the previous taurus. Good car for a budget-limited young couple!

Best Features

Manual switch is fantastic for such small engine, if you have the basic skills for manual transmission. Stylish layout and exterior. Comfortable seats. Relatively spacious trunk.

Worst Features

Auto-lighting and keyless entry should be standard on all sports trims.
