Reliable, fun, bit of a squeeze.

My Mazda is a rebuilt title. I bought it that way. It is been an awesome little car. It has a sunroof that I love. It is easy to modify so it has a new entertainment system with apple carplay and the Mazda accepted it pretty easily. It is reliable as can be. I have never been left stranded and it is been abused in its life. The only downside is it is small. I am tall and it is hard for me to squeeze into the back seat. I am the sole driver so it is not an issue personally but something to keep in mind. I nanny 3 small kids who all have car seats. It is possible but tricky to squeeze 3 car seats back there. overall, it is a great car that gets the job done.

Oldie but goodie with AUX and speed.

My Mazda is my baby, it is my first car and it is the best reliable car for me. It is a Mazda3 that can either be driven as an automatic or manual drive, however I keep it in automatic all the time. It is still very new considering it is a 2009, I am able to play my AUX cord since the car came with an outlet for me to plug one into so I play my Apple music and I am able to answer calls through my car with the AUX cord making it another great feature for the age of my car. The speed on it is great whether I am cruising or need for speed on the freeway it can get me to all places that I need to be at. I love my car.

Mazda 3 great low maintenance car!

The Mazda 3 is a great car if you are looking for a low maintenance reliable car. I have had very little issues with it since purchasing it through a used car dealer about two years ago. The one major (if you can call it major) is the drivers window would get stuck in the down position and I will have to jiggle it up. But honestly it was a pretty fix and didn't have to bring it to a mechanic. It was more of an annoyance than anything as I was still able to drive the car and it runs great!
