Mazda cx-3 problems and highlights!

I really like that it is very touchy with the accelerator. If you push it just a little bit the car will go very fast, but drive very smoothly! I also really like that the seats are very comfy. They provide enough support so that you feel comfortable while driving, but they never get super hard or uncomfortable, even on very long drives! Overall, it handles very well and I don't really have any complaints about it! The one problem it has is occasionally it will lurch forward on the highway all of the sudden and then make a "clunk" sound. I have taken it to multiple dealerships and auto shops and they haven't been able to fix the problem or even understand what the problem is. It sometimes gets so often it is terrifying to drive. I really like this car, so I may try to test drive another one and see if it has the same problem. If it does not, I'll buy that car instead as long as it runs better. It is most likely just a manufacturing problem. It is very reliable but this problem has become more and more frequent with the time I have had it. One thing that I especially like about the car is the amazing speaker system. I can drone out sounds around me without turning it up high. And I can turn it up high enough for me, but not high enough for the people outside my car in their own cars to hear the music. I couldn't do this with my last car, which was a 2010 Mazda 3, so I am very excited and happy that I can do it with this car! Overall I would definitely recommend this car to anyone and everyone, just be completely sure it has no manufacturing defects before buying the car!

The sturdiest little car and best gas mileage.

My car is amazing, great on gas super comfortable, the back is super spacious, I love all the thought out placement of the buttons on the car, love putting my back seats all the way down for my two dogs, we live in the middle of nowhere so we have to make a drive for pretty much anything and this car gets us two and from with ease, I cannot say enough good things, the built in “Siri” is great as well, I love all the hands free things, easy to make a call or even texts, answer incoming calls it is all so easy with this car.

My car is incredibly reliable and safe feeling. While small, it's mighty.

The car's performance is amazing. It handles great in all weather, makes me feel safe. The seats are comfortable, and the heated seat is great. The touch screen is unintuitive and very confusing- especially the navigation feature. The adaptive cruise control hurts my mileage which is annoying. The gas tank seems to easily get air bubbles resulting in frustration while gassing my vehicle. Overall I love my car despite its annoyances.

SAFE AND RESPONSIVE AND FUN.

I HAVE ONLY HAD THIS CAR FOR ABOUT 4 WEEKS AND SO FAR IT'S BEEN GREAT. IT HAS A SMOOTH RIDE, PRETTY GOOD TORQUE, A GOOD AMOUNT OF FEATURES. I HAVE NOT DRIVEN IT IN THE WINTER (SNOW CONDITIONS) SO I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT WILL BE BUT IT IS AN AWD CAR. ALTHOUGH IT HAS MANY FEATURES, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A FEW MORE THINGS, LIKE THE CAR TELLING ME HOW MANY MILES I CAN DRIVE WITH MY TANK AND AUTO WINDOWS OTHER THAN THE PASSENGER.

The best car that ever existed.

A little slow to start. It takes a while to get from 0-60 which is troublesome sometimes. Disconnects from Bluetooth. Love the gas mileage and style of the car. Love the stereo and the way they have the entertainment system set up. I like that it is small and low to the ground but also can withhold rough terrain like gravel and bumps.

Mazda are the best car to own.

Best vehicle ever. Never had a problem with the car. Easy on gas. Very reliable and feel very safe driving in a Mazda. I have had other Mazda in the best. Had a car accident in 2015 which wasn't my fault. Someone ran a red light hitting me on the drivers side door speeding. Mazda has saved my life so I will always be a Mazda fan.

Overall review of the Mazda cx-3.

It is amazing all around. It gets great gas mileage. It just lacks a built in armrest. One does come after market. The car has a fair amount of space but the back room is kind of small. There is not amount time for a bag of golf clubs unless the back room of seats are down. The ride is smooth.

- Troy J

Hate counsel controllers, dislike radio display, too small, no arm rest, performs well, powers up easily, relatively fast, good gas mileage, but truly dislike features. The color is nice. I do not love the hatchback style. The seats look cheap. The interior is undesirable.

- Sara B

Super fun and comfortable Mazda!

By far my favorite of any car I have ever purchased! The cx-3 provides a great ride! Superior handling for it is class. Great gas mileage! Love features such as back-up camera, Bluetooth, etc. It also provides superior cargo space for the size and a comfortable ride.

Sleek, compact, easy on the eyes. A/C is cold in less than a minute. Nav is awesome!

Love how many miles per gallon! It's compact but a hatchback so I can easily travel with good space for storage. Very easy to park. I'm not a big fan all the time of the fish eye camera for reverse... makes it difficult sometimes when trying to park backwards.

- Benjamin P

Sport car like with the black leather seats and red piping detail.

I have just recently leased the Mazda and so far have had no problems. Really reliable and very good gas mileage. Service is easy to obtain and I love the look of it. When sold to me all salespeople most accommodating.

The navigation system isn't as good as others I've see in cars.

I love the interior leather, the blind spot monitor, and the design of the car. I like how it can be driven in two modes both economical and sport. Sport is needed if you drive on highways!

- Sybil S

Beautiful angles. Amazing interior. Overall a gorgeous car

So fun to drive. Amazing responses. I feel as though the car is a continuation of myself when I drive. It is an amazing car. I recommend it to everyone I know who is car shopping

- Huda J

It's a great small size car! And is easy to handle.

I love the size of my vehicle. I wanted a hatchback so I don't have to lift my luggage into a trunk. It could use a little more cargo space. And faster acceleration.

- Paz G

It's a great subcompact vehicle that handles well in adverse weather.

Love the size, AWD and the aesthetics. The pick-up could definitely be better and there is no covered coin tray or arm rest for the driver (that comes standard)

- Justina S

It is not too big and has connecting trunk and has a lot of space in the back.

The only thing I dislike is that it does not show which tire is low. I love how smooth the ride is in the car. I also like that it is great one gas per mileage.

- Kirsten S

Its safe and comfortable to drive.

I like the safety features. I like how it handles. I dislike that it doesn't have remote locking mechanism. It's not fuel efficient.

- Nancy W

Awesome car! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a car.

This car is perfect for my long commutes to and from work. The only problem I have is the low air comes on for the tire.

- Renee C

Have to pay extra for navigation system

Easy to drive but back seat space very confining - because it's All Wheel Drive, mileage isn't what I was hoping for

- Anthony T

Great value! One of the best cars out there

Runs and is always a great ride. Smooth and never feel the bumps like in other cars

- kristi g

Small trunk space but lots of legroom for passengers.

Like how it handles, love the blue tooth and AC. No complaints

- Anonymous A

Economical fuel efficiency vehicle

Needs more cargo space, legroom could be larger
