My mazda meets all my needs.

My car is small and cute. It handles rally well and is very easy to maneuver in tight spaces. It has excellent gas mileage. It has require very little maintenance in the 8 years since I bought it used at carmax. It is micah Blue laser which is a very attractive color. Mostly oil changed is all that it needs regularly. It has lasted a longitud time and is still in great working condition. It has a pretty good sized backseat even though it's a small car. It fits my twins car seats easily. The trunk is Also a good size as well and I can usually fit all my groceries inside. It is a very attractive car and appeals to both men and women. I love it and would definitely purchase another mazda if I were looking to buy another vehicle.

The Mazda 3 has been dependable and reliable. The most important thing you can ask from a car.

The Mazda 3 has been a very reliable and dependable car. I have not had to get any major work done except for replacing my shocks and replacing the fan for the air conditioning. The interior is very decent. For a car from 2004, it gets great gas mileage. It's a 4 cylinder, so power is not its strongest asset, but one of my number one priorities for a car is dependability. The 2 Mazda's I've owned in my life have been some of the most reliable cars I've owned and the least amount of issues and work to maintain. The only thing is I'm 6'4 and now that I got kids and car seats, I don't have a lot of room anymore, but your average person won't have to worry about that.

The check engine light in the Mazda 3 series mostly turns out to be more air in the gas tank. Make sure the gas cap is screwed on tight every time you fill up!

I love the look of my vehicle. It's cute and sporty, plus it's a stick shift, so I feel like I'm driving around a small sports car! It drives and handles well, but there are 2 things I dislike about the car. The check engine light likes to come on and go off randomly for no reason. I've had it checked and there's no real reason why it turns on except that there's more oxygen in the gas and that the gas tank cover needs to be screwed on tighter, which it is Everytime. Second is the electrical box malfunctions from time to time, causing my tail lights to not work. I give it a whack and they turn back on though! Other than that, I am happy with my car.
