    2010 Mazda MAZDA3

    first car purchase.. not happy

    Pros: interior and great pickup

    Cons: power steering noise and the dealership service.

    this is my first car purchase with my hard earn money. three months of owning this car, i had to take it to the shop three times. my power steering light came on and lost my steering while i was driving. the dealership could not find anything wrong and now i hear very loud hissing/humming noise. they said its a normal sound but i hear it inside the car and outside. it is so loud and annoying. i am planning to sale this car in several months. only had the car for five months now. not happy

    2008 Mazda MAZDA3

    Pros: handling, 33-35 mpg, and excellent looks

    Cons: carpet, seats need updated to better quality

    Great looks. Paint is excellent quality/ Holds up great in Arizona sun where most paints fade quickly. Excellent gas mileage. Consistently 33 - 35 mpg on freeway. Handling is surprisingly precise with little to no body roll. No mechanical issues at all with 61,000 on odometer. Interior carpet and seats are of fair quality but for price of vehicle I thought they seem a little 'cheap'. Overall I would buy another.

    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.
