My Mazda 3 is not only fun to drive, but is safe and incredibly reliable.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

My Mazda 3 has been incredibly reliable over the life of the car. The only major work I have had to do was replace the clutch. It was worn out through regular wear and tear. I love the look and sound of it, and it is a joy to drive. It is a 6 speed, which is something that I look for in a car. It also has a Bose surround sound system in it, which puts out incredible sound. It gets great gas mileage, a mixed average of about 30 mpg, and a highway of around 35 mpg.

My Mazda 3 will definitely last me I couldn't be any happier with this car

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

This car drives so well and smooth. Great first car that has not given me problems since I've gotten the car. It has hands free Bluetooth which has helped me a lot. No wires needed to play music and answer phone calls. Any purchases for the car have not been overly expensive. I have done many road trips and the car has always ran perfectly fine and is still running extremely well. I will definitely stick to this style vehicle.

Mazda 3 2010: Review Answer to issue with sound system failure: AKA blown amp

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

Bose amp has blown... waiting for a replacement. No sound system currently. The good part was when I researched the error, I found out it was covered for free through Bose. The only tricky part is that I had to remove the seat to get at it. Other than that, I have not had many serious issues, other than the battery life, which is pretty typical. The car has pretty decent gas mileage and is pretty comfy inside.

Fun to drive, easy to learn

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

This car has been very reliable. The worst part of the car is the tires. I feel like we go through tires way too quickly. The clutch went out at about 70,000 miles which was earlier than expected, but a lot of people learned to drive clutch on this car, so that probably explains it. The speakers have gone out after about 9 years, but it's just getting old at this point.

2010 Mazda 3 is a stand-up little car

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

It runs well!! I very rarely have any issues. As long as I keep up with it in reference to oil changes, I normally don't have any problems. Lately I've had a problem with starting my Mazda 3. It would choke on the first ignite, but the second start would rarely fail. The paint got a bit damaged living in the Texas summer heat for 9 years.

Great car except too low to the ground

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

I'm the engine itself has been very reliable. I have few complaints. Two drawbacks are that the car is very low to the ground, which makes it very speedy but also means that I hit potholes and cause damage to the car. I have had to replace the bumper because of this. It also uses minimum 91 octane gas which is expensive.

- Mary P

It gets very Good gas mileage and very reliable car to have

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

It is Reliable. It is Long lasting. It gets Good gas mileage. It is durable. It is comfortable. It has Bluetooth. It has cloth seats. It was easily fixed after an accident. It is spacious. It has a big trunk. The air and heat both work very well. It has very small mirrors so hard to see surrounding areas.

- Megan S

Great get up and go with good sounds system.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

The dash has dried and is cracking in places. Did have to have something in the engine changed but it was a recall thing so I didn't have to pay for it. Love the Bluetooth feature, great get up and go speed. Sound system is pretty nice too. And the feature to switch over to partial manual is fun.

- Jessie C

Love my Mazda. Race car feel and great sound system

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

My Mazda3 has excellent acceleration and handling. The Bose sound system is great. Inside it has a race car feel with luxury comfort. I do wish it came with a telescopic steering wheel so that I would not have to lean so far forward when driving. It was not a deal breaker for me though.

- Andy C

Third time Mazda owner here

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

The Mazda is an all around reliable and solid vehicle. This is my 3rd Mazda I have owned. They are sustainable. Interior is comfortable and cool. Gas mileage is very good and fits my lifestyle. No major problems in my history. My only complaint is I wish the vehicle was AWD.

- Amy G

Stylish and cozy with a little bit of sports fun for a guy or girl

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

When in idle mode or vibrates very hard also Shifts hard from 1st to second gear. It gets good gas mileage but the front seats are a little to compact. The trunk is a nice size but the air conditioning is weak even at 4 setting overall it's a good car if maintained properly

- Alexa N

Great car! Money well spent.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

I keep up with routine maintenance and I have had no problems with the car. I bought it with almost 24,000 miles on it and it now has over 200,000 miles and it is still going strong! It still gets great city/highway mileage and has enough room for my four dogs.

- Kelly B

Like my car except for...

2010 Mazda Mazda3 s Sport

It is reliable. Seat not adjustable or as comfortable as I would like. No place to put my cell phone and see the GPS. No a/c in backseat. 3 seatbelts for the back, but only small people or kids fit with any kind of comfort. Rearview mirror too small.
