    2010 Mazda MAZDA3

    Pros: handling, fit and finish

    Cons: the seat is not comfortable to me

    I sell BMW's and have driven them for many years. I have decided, because I am planning to retire soon, to buy a car and not lease anymore. I drove many cars, and found that the Mazda 3 is a wonderful car for the money. It does not feel like a cheap car, and handles as well as any BMW I have driven. It does not have the power of the 3 series BMW, but it does just fine on the roads. It corners and handles so well. And, the steering is so much easier than the BMW, that cannot turn a corner or make a u turn without two hands on the wheel. And, of course the gas mileage, using regular gas as opposed to high test for the BMW is so much better.

    2009 Mazda MAZDA3

    worst quick pick

    Pros: the outside body

    Cons: drivers seat ergonomics

    my cadilac catera died. i needed a car fast. it was inexpensive. my drive to work one way in an hour. im average 5'10'. i hate the accelerator pedal and how close the center console causes my right leg to lay against very irritating feeling all the road vibrations. lots of road noise. stiff ride. ergonomics uncomfortable need to hunch over to hold the steering wheel after setting the seat for the pedal comfortability. the fix would be a telescope steering wheel. also slow get up and go. alway finding larger cars on my rear wanting to go.

    2010 Mazda MAZDA3

    IT'S AN EXTENTION OF ME

    Pros: MANUAL TRANS

    Cons: NOTHING AT THIS TIME

    BOUGHT A MAZDASPEED3 WITH A MANUAL TRANS AND ITS EVERY THING I HOPED FOR. I ENJOY SHIFTING SMOOTHLY EVEN THOUGH IT IS A CHALLENGE. I HAVE CARS WITH AUTO TRANS AND THEY TAKE YOU TO A TO B, BUT ARE NOT FUN OR ENGAGING. IM 75YRS OLD AND DO NOT GO FAST BUT ENJOY DRIVING THIS CAR.
