2010 Mazda 3 with spoiler

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

My 2010 Mazda 3 still performs great. I have her 100,000 miles on it, get the oil changed and receive tune-ups as suggested by the mechanics. I really have only had to get new tires and brakes. The seats are pretty comfortable and the trunk is extremely spacious for a small sedan. I love the Bluetooth feature that allows me to make calls and utilize other Bluetooth features through my phone like listening to music.

- Ashley N

Beautiful audio, bad key fob

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I love how the car automatically connects to my phone every time I turn on my car. If I was playing something like music or a podcast, it picks up where it left off within a few seconds. I love it. However, the steering wheel is quite small and the key fob chooses when it wants to work. I've had to unlock the doors manually a few times.

- Riley C

Mazda 3 a great fun and reliable car to drive you.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

My Mazda 3 is by far one of my most favorite cars I have owned. It is reliable, great in gas and never makes me feel like I am going to be stuck somewhere. I would highly recommend this vehicle to family and friends. Features of the car include Bluetooth which I love while I am driving I can connect to my music and phone calls.

- Diane M

2010 Mazda 3. First car for a new driver and never had any issues with it.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I have never really had any problems with my vehicle. It is very reliable and comfortable to drive. The only issue I have ever had is the battery dying but that was most likely due to cold weather. The car was previously owned by my father who gave it to me as a first car when I started driving and it has never given me issues.

- Emma F

Mazda 3 great affordable car.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

This car is roomy and comfortable, gets great gas mileage, and drives smoothly. Great acceleration too. Good for city, highway, and mountain driving. The only issues I have had are battery life and running out of windshield wiper fluid easily. I also had a small problem with the engine flooding once.

- Victoria C

Super reliable and comfortable.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

78,000 miles and currently have had no major issues. Body is starting to rust in a few spots, and the clear coat is fading in areas. Interior is very clean and sleek, and the technology in the vehicle is great. Overall I absolutely love this car and would 100% recommend that other people get a Mazda.

- Tammy S

Mazda is a great car to buy.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Car runs well have had very minor problems over the past 10 years, such as battery and tires. Overall i'd say Mazda is a great make for cars and id buy one again! The model. I have which is the Mazda 3 is not great in the snow... Obviously runs better with snow tires for winter season.

- Jacqueline K

Reliable vehicle for young adults. Great Bose stereo system. Sleek, fun design.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Cheaply made. No power. Easily dented. Dashboard is melting in the sun. Inside knobs and emblems faded. Doors slam loudly. Car horn sounds funny. This is a good starter car for young adults. Not a luxury vehicle by any means. Does have a good stereo system. Seems to be reliable.

- Brandy D

I have a 2010 gray Mazda 3. I think an interesting detail is the cream interior.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Car has been very solid. It just doesn't have quite the engine or bells and whistles I would like in a car. For a base model car, it has everything I would expect, however, including Bluetooth connectivity. For a compact sedan, the trunk is also quite large which is great.

- Michael B

It is my red, smiling car.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I bought this car as a replacement for my Acura which was lost in a flood. I got it because it was a 4 door, was spacious and had less than 100k on the odometer. Seats are quite stiff but it drives well, gets good gas mileage and has required no maintenance as yet.

- Peter C

Nice, small, reliable car.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I enjoy the car. I have had very few issues with it. There was a recall on the airbags. I have taken it on long trips and been comfortable. It is nice for a single person, not much room for hauling a lot but it is good on gas mileage. It has all the basic features.

- Renee F

Fast, safe, and comfortable: a dream car!

2010 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

This car has a lot of space for a sporty sedan, a lot of torque in the engine which makes it fun to drive, and great safety features that make me feel comfortable driving it frequently. I have never had an issue with it and am so glad I chose this car!
