Mazda3 Hatchback very accessible and reliable

I have the hatchback version of the Mazda3. I absolutely love the car. It's good on gas, but I'm sure it would've been even better with Skyactiv Technology had it been a 2012 model. My only complaint is the tint is peeling off, when I rarely open my windows and the car completely shakes if windows are open while driving fast on the highway. The shaking is very loud and rumbles hard, so the aerodynamics of the car isn't that great. It's best with the windows up. It's small, but can hold so much when the back seats are put down. It's helped me with moving countless times, and it's easy to park.

The Mazda 3 is the new fad for new teen drivers!

The 2011 Mazda 3 is a strong working vehicle. The performance is a 10. It has great ratings. The reliability is fairly high and the car is safe to drive. The gas mileage could be better, depending if one lives in the city vs suburban area. I have loved driving the mid-size sedan for 7 years and I will continue to drive the car for a long while. The Mazda has various features, but each model has their own. Since this model was a base model, it has standard features. I recommend looking at Mazda's in general if you have a teen who's looking at their first cars. It is a great first starter car.

2011 Mazda 3 overall review- 5 year ownership.

Comfortable compact perfect size for someone under 5’4, my sister who is slightly taller feels and looks funny when driving such small car. Mazda 3 is great on gas. Be sure to get upgrades when available. No major issues in the last 5 years of owning besides oil changes, battery replacement, tires. Be sure to purchase good quality tires as I learn the cheap ones tend to last only a few months before thread is low and tire flat. Great highway mileage. The overhead interior light buttons fall off easily. Ac is strong and works great in the Florida heat.
