Detailed review of the performance and features of the Mazda 3.

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

The car is very comfortable and roomy, especially the backseat. I have plenty of space to have my son's car seat and also have two other people fit into the backseat as well, without having other people be uncomfortable or squished. One of the features that I really enjoy is that it automatically connects to my phone's Bluetooth as long as the Bluetooth is on. I didn't have that with my previous car and I had to manually connect it each time which was a huge pain. As far as performance goes, the car rides pretty smoothly. It is also very reliable. I haven't had any major issues since I bought it, and I bought it as a used car. Overall, I love and I am seriously considering staying within the Mazda family when I purchase my new car in the years to come.

Mazda 3 2011 Speed n Tech

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

Given its bump to 263 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, the Mazda 3 is not for the faint of heart. Its proclivity for throttle-induced torque steer can be fatiguing, while its buttoned down suspension borders on punishing. If in doubt, take a good look at the more prosaic - albeit still capable and compelling - Mazda3 4 door with 2.5 liter four and 6-speed manual trans. Having gained new (and controversial) sheet metal in 2010, the Mazdaspeed3 receives only a few minor mods, notably in its all-encompassing Technology package all at a fair price

Comfortable, safe and affordable car

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

This model is very old, yet it has not given me many problems. It is a small car, yet rather comfortable. I do not like how my car does not have an automatic lock system. I have gotten used to it, however, I believe it would improve the vehicle's safety. The interior of my car is black and about 2 years ago, my dashboard popped off of the outside plastic that covers the area where the time and temperature is displayed. I believed this was caused because of the heat. I did not contact Mazda to fix the issue

Great, reliable, comfortable and nice looking car

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

One of my most favorite cars that I've driven. Great gas mileage & handles amazing. I am a big fan of the hatchback and the space this car has. For such a small looking car it provides a great deal of space and comfort to hold groceries or take long drives. My car also has a sunroof which makes driving the vehicle that much more fun and comfortable to be in!

2011 Mazda 3- very little maintenance!

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

My Mazda 3 has been very reliable these past 4 years. I bought it used with low mileage. It is eight years old and still drives like it is brand new and has required very little maintenance. Some features of the vehicle are it is automatic, four door, power locks and windows. Not only has it required little maintenance, the gas mileage is awesome!

Comfortable, sporty, and above all, reliable.

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

My 2011 Mazda 3 has been very reliable and efficient. It has almost 170,000 miles and there has been no mechanical issues. I would recommend this car to others and I plan on purchasing a newer model when I am ready to replace my car. It is sporty, comfortable, and great for long road trips.

Cool kid on the block who is always on the go.

2011 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

It is reliable, comfy, has Bluetooth, it is fast, sleek. I get compliments on how the black is a good color and they like the hatchback feature. The speaker quality is awesome. The ac is really cool and it has different settings. It is not autostart, but that can be installed.
