Sporty, Great gas mileage, Great for single drivers or small families

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

Let me start by saying we wanted a small car that would have excellent gas mileage and would save us money on a the payment. We got exactly what we were looking for in this car! When we fill up (usually around $30) we get over 500 miles until empty! The miles per gallon usually stays around 35-45 (on the register inside the car) I haven't actually tallied these number myself but it gets incredible gas mileage!! I love that it's a sporty look but after purchasing we realized when my husband who is 6'4 is in the car he has to have the seat pushed all the way back so no one can sit behind him. That's fine for us we only have one child but if you have are a taller person keep that in mind. It is super small. The electronics are not as up to date as other cars I have driven but it does have the hands free calling and Bluetooth so that is a huge plus. Overall it is a nice, sporty, inexpensive vehicle that also does not break the bank on gas!

Love my car.. but it�s time for another one.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I purchased my vehicle used and with a pretty good amount of miles on it but loved it right away since it was my very first car out of high school. (Totaled the first one) since the car was used, I noticed a sort of 'knocking' noise the more I drove it. Since I got the car with extremely low payments, I decided to apply for a credit card and fix the car. The brakes were an issue in which I had to really push down almost to the bottom to get the car to stop. The fixed the knocking noise but the brakes seemed like nothing was fixed. Fast forward about 9 months and one morning the ABS, brake light, and the swerving car light came on all at once. I was told that everything looked fine but it could just be the sensors which I know isn't cheap. I feel like I put in all this work for a car that's slowly giving up on me so time for a new car soon!

Incredible car with great dependability.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I absolutely love my Mazda! I bought it used, but it was only about four years old, although it did have roughly 75,000 miles on it. Even still, I have had zero problems in the 2 1/2 years that I have been driving it. The seats are comfortable and fabric, so no killing of cows was required to make the seats. Both the air conditioning and heating work wonderfully, and the car accelerates quickly but you are able to break with a moments notice. Both the trunk and back seat is spacious considering the overall size of the car, and the glove compartment and storage between the driver and passenger seats are large, as well. As of right now, I have no complaints about this incredible car!

- Marie D

It is a very reliable car for someone who just needs a basic car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This was my first car and I would say it is a great first car. It has the basic features, no Bluetooth, GPS, or high-end technology. The size of the car is just right, it is not very spacious in the backseat but can fit five people comfortably. Haven't had any major car issues so it has been extremely reliable to get to everyday destinations. The only concerns I have had with the car is that the steering wheel is not very sturdy, it shakes a lot and is sensitive. Other than the sensitivity, the car works fine for someone who does not care for fast performing cars for the fast acceleration.

- Alexis O

Great car, very efficient.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

I really like my car because it is compact but also has great trunk space. The back seat is large enough for a baby car seat without feeling cramped. It is very efficient and great for long car rides and for driving to and from work everyday and if you want an easy park in the city. Haven't really had any problems with it except for some clips that were replaced. The hatchback is perfect for seeing out the back window and it comes with a window wiper for the back window. I wish my car had a sunroof and it was leather, but that will be for another time. I would recommend this car to anyone.

2012 Mazda 3, starter or finisher car!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love this car. It is a great starter car, the seats are very comfortable, the design is fairly intuitive, it is easy to drive, etc. My only complaints are that it can be a bit heavy on the tires and does not accelerate very quickly. The engine does not have a lot of power, but it gets incredible gas mileage. Right now, I am getting 32 mpg in the city. The trunk is also huge, you can fit a surprising amount of things inside. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is a somewhat loud car as it is relatively low to the road. Overall, I love this car and would recommend it to anyone.

- Madison B

Fantastic commuter car — and then some!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have put tens of thousands of miles on this car since I bought it in 2013 and it still runs like a champ! I love this as a commuter vehicle, however, it is on the small side. While I have fit myself and three men, over 6’ tall in for several cross country road trips, it is not the most comfortable ride with a full backseat. Other than that, I get great gas mileage (average of 33 mpg with mostly city driving) and this car has just the right amount of bells and whistles for me, including Bluetooth. I really love this car.

- Ariana F

All about a 2013 Mazda 3. Pros and cons.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had my car for 4 years and have only had to change the breaks one time, and my tires twice. It is a small care so it does get frustrating. Frame seems cheap in the front. On bump and it popped out a little bit. Volume control is nice. Is not Bluetooth which is not the greatest. No touch screen. Navigation. Power seats. Glove box is small. AUX cord and USB port is in center console which is small and can get frustrating. Gas is about 30 dollars to fill. Which lasts me about a week and I. Do quite a bit of driving.

- Dominique H

My Mazda 3 is a pretty good vehicle.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The Mazda 3 is a reliable 6 speed manual vehicle that is very good on gas mileage. I get about thirty to thirty five miles per gallon, and overall fill up my gas tank two or three times a month. I do about 2 hour on commuting five days a week. One of the only issue that I have with it, as a tall man, is that there is not quite enough room for my legs. I am comfortable, but I cannot stretch out if I am the passenger. I do not need to stretch out when I am driving, but cannot do so comfortably when I am the passenger.

- Joshua B

This is a great vehicle that is sporty and comfortable to drive.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

The Mazda 3 has quite a bit of zip for a 4 cylinder vehicle. It has cruise control and can be driven in 'manual mode' for a little extra control. It has been very reliable and has been on several short road trips. This particular trim style is lacking some of the more comfortable features, but it is great for everyday commute. It has Bluetooth, so can be connected to the phone for music and GPS. It handles really well on turns and has good visibility for a low vehicle. It has been a really reliable vehicle overall.

- Danielle M

Simple, reliable, and fun to drive!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had no major reliability issues, having stuck to the manufacturer's service plan. My only complaint is that the road noises at high speed are louder in this vehicle than others I have driven. It is as comfortable ad you can get for an entry-level sedan, and it has basic features. I am easy to please, so the driving dynamics is what I look at. My Mazda performs exceptionally well. It only had a four-cylinder, but it gets things done. The handling is beautiful as well.

- Nick M

Mazda 3 vehicle is great!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Mazda vehicles are great! The car is very comfortable, and drives very smooth. I currently am driving a Mazda 3 and the only issues I have had so far is the tensioner pulley that is worn down, and it creates a squeaking noise. Keep in mind that this is the first time something like this has happened, and the people that are letting me drive the vehicle for school purposes, have had it since 2013, brand new! I highly recommend this car to anyone interested in buying a Mazda!

- Michaela S

The perfect balanced car!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring

The car has been very reliable. I bought it with 72k and it now has 100k. No mechanical issues so far. It is manual. Great for a beginner. The car has moderate power, very consistent and linear. Car is spacious, at least for a college student. Gas mileage is acceptable. Bluetooth is fantastic. I really do enjoy this car. I can drive it spiritedly and feel in control, then transition to reserved driving with no inconsistencies. Perfect car for a college student.

- Josh H

No monthly maintenance Mazda.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The car runs well. The transmission is starting to give out. I take the car to get regular maintenance and oil changes. The seats are comfortable I wish they were leather. I am actually looking to upgrade my Mazda. I haven't had too many issues as far as reliability. The car runs well. I rarely have to do separate maintenance monthly. I recommend Mazda’s to most people that are in the market to purchase a new car. I would like to upgrade to the Mazda 6 soon.

Mazda3 I sport: compact in size but large in personality

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

My Mazda3 I sport is 7 years old but it's performance has been outstanding. It gets about 40 miles per gallon and is very reliable. So far I haven't had any major issues with my mazda3 I sport. My Mazda is one of the basic models but it has electric windows, locks, and a good sound system. The car itself is rather small but works perfectly for me having no children. The truck is spacious and front seating area doesn't feel cramped.

- Melissa B

The hatchback! Although the car is small it is perfect for a weekend getaway.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I enjoy my Mazda 3 hatchback because of the amazing gas mileage it has. I currently live about 5 hours from my hometown. When I do travel sometimes I able to travel the 350+ miles on a half a tank of gas. One addition we also added to our car was dark tint. During the summer time, I was able to cool down the car pretty quickly. The Mazda company has always been good about fixing any common issues that may arise with the Mazda.

- Melissa G

Gets the job done and wonderful for city parking!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Overall, I love my Mazda 3. I have had very few problems and am able to go far distances with little problems. It makes turns very well and can drive a far distance per mile. The inside is not very modern, but has all needed features. It does not do well in rain or snow and often has trouble with sliding. I love the size - makes it very easy to park, especially in the city. However, this size was then changed in newer models!

- Stephanie S

Affordable low maintenance car which is enjoyable to drive

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

I enjoy driving this vehicle however the shocks are not great and can feel every bump in the road. It is very spacious as well as a large trunk. I have had the vehicle for seven years and haven't had any major issues with it. It's very low maintenance, I get an oil change done on it roughly every 3-4 months. You can adjust the seat however my back tends to hurt after about an hour of driving.

- Krystal D

A reliable car, with great gas mileage, is fun to drive and easy to maintain.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Great car for my long, 50 minute, commute. Good gas mileage on stop and go traffic (~30 mpg). The car has been very reliable and easy to maintain. This car is really fun to drive. It is very responsive and makes maneuvering a breeze. My favorite feature is the easy Bluetooth setup and operation. I am always listening to podcasts while I'm driving and the easy Bluetooth operation is great.

- Josh K

A silver 2012 Mazda 3 that is very reliable and very efficient.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Grand Touring

My Mazda 3 has many great features. 12 Bose speakers, GPS navigation, heated front seats, Bluetooth connection, and many more. Drives well, is safe, and it being 7 years old, it's still in great shape. Some dents on the roof from how I park, but very fixable. Great mileage, very comfortable, and very smooth when out on the road. I bought the car 3 years ago and I still give it a 10/10.

- Matthew N

My 2012 Mazda 3 gets 35-40 miles per gallon.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

My 2012 Mazda 3 is very reliable. Came with an excellent sound system, and rides very smooth. Very comfortable and has lots of great features. My Mazda is a 6 speed and the gears are close together making the shifting process very smooth. My Mazda also gets great gas mileage, around 35 to 40 a gallon. I would recommend this car to anyone, it would make a great first car for a teenager.

- Haley R

Great for adventuring and traveling!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I really like the space my vehicle has. It allows me to travel easily and even sleep in the back when the seats are down. I have used it to move and there is so much room for all of my stuff. The interior is a nice beige color. I haven't had any maintenance issues really. I wish it was a standard but that is more of a personal preference just because it is so convenient for traveling.

- Lea K

This Mazda 3 is really fun and comfortable to drive.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love the comfort of my Mazda3. The seat warmer has to be my favorite feature since we get a lot of cold weather here. The seats are comfortable and easily adjustable. I'm fond of the automatic windows and love the sunroof. It also drives very nicely and gets great gas mileage. The ride isn't as smooth as some because it's a more sporty car, but it takes turns very well!

- Rachael B

It's a good little car that has been dependable with no major issues

2012 Mazda Mazda3 Base

Overall it's a great little car. The center could be redesigned for more convenience. As it is now, the gear shift sits in front of a storage area when in park so you can't get to it. The other problem we've had is the inside driver side handle stopped working. We couldn't open the door from the inside. But it runs well and we haven't had any engine problems.

- Joan F

Fun to drive and easy to maintain.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Grand Touring

Accelerates quickly and handles extremely well. It is actually fun to drive and looks a little sportier than other vehicles of take size and gas mileage range. Cheap to maintain and fill with gas. Synthetic oil requirement makes oil changes a little pricier by necessity. Heated seats are wonderful and the grand touring's default package sound system is top notch.

- Jessica N

Good investment but not a decent family vehicle

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

great on gas, easy to fix, parts are easy to find. Very dependable car, but space is limited to 3 people maximum. Have had this car for about 2 years and have only done routine maintenance on it, which was relatively cost efficient. I have driven this car in al different terrains since it is a smaller car it takes more horsepower to get it up steeper mountains

- Cameo E

This car is great on gas mileage!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

The dash came apart, the mirrors are not heated, the driver's seat almost instantly ripped. I have never had a problem with it starting. It is quiet and has great gas mileage. I love that the seats completely recline and that the seats slide completely back. The rear seats fold down to extend the trunk. This is very helpful since this is a very small car.

- Cora C

Mazda3 is small, for better or worse.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I did not pick it and wouldn't have, but got it used. It is ok, but it is very small. There is very little leg room if you have 4 people. Also it has no pep. From a stop or a slow speed it struggles to accelerate there is very little room in the center console which is bothersome. However it gets good mileage and it is easier to parallel park than my old SUV.

- Kim P

It's an awesome commuter vehicle and gets amazing gas mileage.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Reliability is really awesome, the 4 cylinder Mazda 3s performance really lacks, it shifts late and take a long minute to get up to speed. It's a comfortable car for a shorter person that is single and has no children or large dogs, I don't recommend this car to people on the tall side. The back seat is supper cramped and can barely fit an infant's car seat.

- Martha J

It is a fantastic car that runs really well.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love the Bluetooth connection. The controls on the steering wheel help me to change settings while I am driving and cannot look away from the road. The view over my left shoulder could be better; it is sometimes difficult to see if there is another car next to me. I also really enjoy the ability to see how many miles I have left before I run out of gas.

- Katie R

My highlights of the car would be that I can adjust my seat to go up and down.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Love my vehicle, very comfortable. The only thing I don't like is that the back seat is a little bit small, other than that it's very spacious. The trunk is perfect size not to big not too small. There was a minor defect on the dashboard that later on became a recalled part, but Mazda reached out and replaced the part at no cost and in a timely matter.

- Patty S

It's small and mighty. Keep up with maintenance and it will continue to serve you well.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It's a perfect little car for running around town and carrying people. My husband and I drive across state in it to visit family regularly and it holds up. We had issues with the struts, which is common with this model, and then regular maintenance. The back seat is a little squished for our larger friends, but the small size makes it easier to park!

- Amy N

Mazda 3 highly recommend, great on gas and reliable vehicle.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

No problems great on gas drives smoothly and rarely has any issues beside normal maintenance. I would definitely recommend my car to anyone and if I were going to buy a new vehicle I would buy a new Mazda 3 just because I love all it's features and the new Mazda 3 has even more features such as back up cam and push start. It's overall a great car.

- Christine B

It is a family car that is comfortable to drive and affordable to maintain.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Grand Touring

I love it is reliability, gas mileage, and performance. I bought it certified pre-owned and had to have the engine replaced, but since then I have had no major issues. There is a dash recall that I have had to replace twice, but the dealership is always reliable to point it out and replaces without issue. They're usually the ones to point it out.

- Valerie M

My Mazda will run forever.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

My Mazda 3 is incredible! It is easy to maneuver and parallel park. Things like changing my headlights and wiper blades are very simple. Great gas mileage on the highway and in the city and handles great in the snow and rain. Steering wheel controls make radio play very easy. The backseat and trunk are roomy and large enough to move furniture.

- Alison M

2012 Mazda 3. Works wonderfully for college students. Lasts a lifetime!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

I have had great success with this car. It is my second car and I bought it second hand and it still works wonderfully. The only issues I have is with the keys, the buttons don't work. It has a sunroof and amazing Bose speakers. It also has a navigation system and it works great. Overall I am very happy with this car and it lasts a long time

- Kathryn L

Sporty little car with a kick and attitude.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Has a little bit of a bumpy ride but is speedy and super fun to drive! Handles well on snow and has great gas mileage. Also, really great sound system! I can jam all day to my favorite music! Small enough to be able to park easily, anywhere. Great for inner city living and reliable enough for long distance drives. Huge trunk for luggage!

- Eleanor S

It�s perfect size, not too big not too small

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

When I was looking For a car I wanted to make sure it was small enough yet large enough for me now and in the future. I always liked Mazda as a brand of your cars so when looking for a car that was my top choice. Searching around I stumbled upon Mazda 3 2012 version and fell in love. That's when I knew it was the car of my dreams

- Victoria N

It's a cute, little blue car that can take you pretty far (I drive 2-3 hours out of town regularly when I sold life insurance). And it's pretty fuel efficient, so filling the gas tank doesn't break your bank. The gas pedal and brakes aren't very sensitive, so they require me to press harder on the pedals, plus the issues with the tire pressure being low a lot. Though I'm not sure if these are problems with the car or my terrible driving.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Likes: Small and cute, but sturdy. Has enough storage for what I need, Comfortable. Fuel efficient. Dislikes: Need to press harder for brakes and acceleration. Tire pressure gets low quickly. Alignment and brakes might need checked. I don't dislike it so much as I feel bad for my car. It barely survives my driving habits.

- Michelle Y

Excellent on gas and stylish

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Very reliable, seat needs better lumbar support, excellent gas mileage (especially highway driving), no Bluetooth connectivity capability, low horsepower, looks nice on the outside and inside, manual drive mode is smooth and fun, good suspension, minimal blind spots, lots of cargo space especially if back seats are folded down

- Tessa P

Perfect small car for anybody in your family.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love my Mazda 3. It is a fast and small car, engine is great and save a lot in gas. Seats are comfortable and it is a nice model from inside and outside, I feel it is perfect for anybody since a young person to an elder person. I love driving this car in the highway you cannot even feel how fast you go. It is pretty smooth!

- Karen R

Mazda 3 interior/exterior pros & cons.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The car overall is great. The interior is designed well, and the exterior is very sleek. The car takes synthetic oil, so the oil changes will be more expensive, but you can drive longer between oil changes. The only issue I have had with the car is that the paint is corroding on the rear driver’s side door and wheel well.

- Tori S

Mazda 3�s are the way to go!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Truly haven't had any problems since purchasing new. Besides routine maintenance we've done nothing. It's a great reliable vehicle! We've done all fully synthetic oil changes from the start. It's comfortable, gets decent gas mileage, and handles great. With snow tires, it's also fantastic in the snow even without being AWD.

- Kristen M

It is an extremely reliable vehicle. I haven't had any major issues with it at all, and anything that was an issue, was easily fixed and for good prices from the dealership where I bought it.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like the look of the vehicle. I also like how it drives - very smooth handling. I tried test driving a 2018 Honda Civic, and I disliked the infotainment console in it. I really like my Mazda's easy to use center console and the fact that I can plug in my iPod to play music when I drive. I don't really have any complaints.

- Allie M

Mazda 3. Great sporty yet practical everyday reliable vehicle.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 Mazdaspeed3 Touring

I really like my Mazda 3. It has built in Bluetooth. Built in controls in the steering wheel. You can drive it in automatic or manual. I love the way it hugs the road while going around bends. Its sporty yet practical because its 4 doors. The trunk is a decent size. Great on gas. Reliable car. 90,000 miles no problems yet.

- Amanda S

My Mazda 3 is a perfect fit for anyone who wants a great performing car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I truly love my Mazda so much. It is a very small car, but that is a huge advantage for me. It performs very well, it gets amazing gas mileage and is not expensive to fill up. For having the basic model from 2012, it has held its value and I have not had many problems with it, besides the typical tires issues everyone has.

- Audrey P

Great gas mileage, little to no problems.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This vehicle gets great gas mileage. It drives fairly smooth, however there is quite a bit of road noise. The interior is simple and easy to clean. My dashboard had to be replaced recently due to a separation between the dash and the radio/clock display. Other than that, there have not been any issues with this vehicle.

- Isabelle G

Small, reliable, most efficient car I have ever owned.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had my car for two years now and it is the most reliable car I have ever had. I am not very good with keeping up with maintenance, but even so it still runs amazing. The car is very comfortable and I am very short so I love that it is a small car. I have the basic model but even so, it has everything I need.

- Elizabeth Z

Quality Mazda3 for an affordable price. Great for local driving!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Gas mileage is great, only have 1 concern with a cv boot axle leaking and it was covered under warranty, seats are not comfortable for long road trips though. It accelerates and handles well. The trunk space and back seat are spacious. There’s an AUX outlet in the center console if you want to plug your phone in.

- Elizabeth J

Sporty sedan with an edge

2012 Mazda Mazda3 Base

I have had no problem. It rides smooth and is compact and versatile. It's very good for short drives or long drives. Perfect for a family or a single person. Safe and comfortable. Great mileage! I would recommend this car to anyone who loves an edge but can also rest assured that what they are driving in is safe.

- Nicole T

2012 Mazda 3 - roomier than it looks.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Performance and reliability are good. Decent mileage. Visibility to the sides is obstructed by the side airbags/pillars, so I have to look 3-4 times each way to make sure no one is coming. Comfort is not too bad - plenty of legroom. Back seat leg room is not generous, but it is ok. Trunk could be a little larger.

- Tom M

Nice little car- easy maintenance, child/teen friendly.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I haven't had any issues with this car. It is been a great little commuter car for me. It is on the smaller side when you have a family though. Maintenance is easy for the most part. It has 2 plug in for chargers as well as an AUX plug. Really helpful with teenagers who like to stay on their phones all the time!

- Maria J

Mazda 3: styling and economical.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

If you are looking for a reliable but fun driving car, the Mazda 3 is one to look at. It is gas mileage is great for its sedan size. Comfortable on short or long distances, is great, and the Bose speakers are to die for! I have owned my Mazda for going on 5 years now, and haven't had any reason to get rid of it.

- Shane E

Mazda3 is a good option, but not the best family car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Fuel efficient. Comfortable seating. No reliability issues at this time - car is currently 6 years old and has had regular, routine maintenance. Spacious enough, though the back seat does get cramped if you have rear facing car seats for taller riders. Good variety of features for the price. Decent trunk space.

- Tana D

Love my Mazda only minor flaw is size.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have no problems other than when I first got it the headlights would flash and come to find out the computer needed an update, which the warranty covered and the dealer took care of immediately. On long drives the seats become uncomfortable and my man is a big guy and it is not really a car for large people.

- Wendy S

Reliable Built of good quality fair as mechanics

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

The Mazda 3 is a real reliable car. Have not had any problems with it. I suggest that for more room get the Mazda 6. It is good on gas. Not that great in snow because it is so lightweight. Bought it brand new. 2012. They have really changed since I bought mine for the better. In the future will purchase another

- Kevin K

Fun detail - glove compartment plug. Car does not have to be on for it to work.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

My Mazda3 is extremely comfortable to drive. The seat is very comfortable for both my husband and myself. One of the best features is the gas mileage. We average around 25-30 mph based on traffic - stop/go and speed. The trunk is roomy for a smaller car. Maintenance costs are very reasonable. Just love it!

- Judy J

Mazda 3, white color, year 2012

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

A little slow to increase speed. It sits low so you need to be careful going over bumps to avoid scraping. The seats are very comfortable. It has large storage capacity. Good sound. Air conditioner and heater are very powerful and sets in within seconds. I like the design. Overall a good and reliable car.

- Luz K

Mazda 3: Casual sedan meets Japanese style

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

My Mazda 3 is great. There are no problems. I normally get bored of vehicles but this one is fun. It looks casual but sporty, so it's unique. I have 100,000 miles on it and still runs good. Just do regular maintenance and there will be no issues. Not many people have it near my area so that's a plus.

- Andrew P

This car drives very well and is a great car for college.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

This car drives very well and has great performance. It is very reliable and comfortable. I wish my car had more features, but it just has the basic package. I have been in Mazda 3s with all of the features and they are amazing. I would definitely recommend this car especially to someone in college.

- Sophie A

what I love most about my Mazda 3 is the 6 speed manual transmission.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

The Mazda 3 is an incredible little car. It's quick, fun to drive, and above all, reliable. Anything that has needed work on this vehicle was inexpensive. It is front wheel drive and is not too great in the snow, but it's also not terrible. There is an open recall on this vehicle for the lift gate

- Frank D

The speaker system is really good, with the bass super effective.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like that it's a manual transmission and the sweet spot for the clutch is fairly large. I also like that my car welcomes me (message on the dashboard) when turning in and that it beeps at me if my door is not shut upon alarming it. I dislike that it doesn't beep at me when I leave my lights on.

- Michelle L

Amazing car, just with a small back seat.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I really enjoy my car. There are not many problems, probably my only complaint would be the back seat is not very big so it makes it challenging to carpool with adults. I love the seat warmers, as do my front seat passengers. The back seats fold down giving more space to transport semi big items.

- Emily B

Fun, comfortable and reliable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Really smooth driving, great handling, good gas mileage. It is a comfortable ride and has a great stereo system. There haven't been too many maintenance issues, apparently it is a common problem for the lights to flicker but overall it is a great commuter car that is dependable and fun to drive.

- Belle K

Silver Mazda 3 small and compact good with various conditions.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Nice car. Not too big. Drives well. Good steering. Gets me where I need to go. Drives well in inclement weather. Paint and exterior still look good despite being in constant weather changes. Interior also looks nice despite not being well taken care of. Would recommend car and brand.

- Gillian W

The Mazda 3 is a great little car for students in high school and college.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Great car, gas mileage is great, haven't had any problems ever. Gets up and goes, the seats could be a little comfier, nice sized trunk. Speakers sound good, has AUX set up and Bluetooth if you are into the music. Perfect for a first car or college student. It is small so perfect for town.

- Victoria R

Great gas mileage, great handling but gas issues.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Car does not have comfortable seats for driving long distances. The car has to many blind spots. The car also prematurely wears out tires because of the negative camber. It does not handle well in any snowfall. On the positive side it has great gas mileage and handles well on the highway.

- Lucy D

The Mazda3: A great car for new and experienced drivers.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I got my car used, but it has served me very well even with over 200,000 miles from the previous owner. It is very gas conservative and will get me around 200-230 miles before needing a refill. It's comfortable and pretty roomy for its size; it's a great beginner car (it was my first).

- David A

Reliable car for teen drivers.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The car is great for commuting, it has great gas mileage. It is rather comfortable, however not for extended period of times. The car is not the sports model so it does not accelerate as quickly as other models. Overall the Mazda 3 is very reliable and is a great car for young drivers.

- Amanda K

Sporty 2012 Mazda 3s with keyless entry

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I haven't had any issues with my Mazda. I've only had to replace the battery which was expected, considering I'd had the car 6 yrs. It has a lot of pep to it, takes off very quickly! I also love the keyless entry. I keep the fob in my purse and the key battery last me at least a year.

- Shonda O

I love my Mazda 3 it is a great car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Grand Touring

I've had my car since 2011 and it still runs great. It is extremely reliable. The only work I've had on the car was to replace the battery and tires this past year. The seats are very comfortable. I love everything about it. I just wish it had a backup camera and more safety options.

- Dana B

I love the body shape and the roominess.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It drives really well, smooth ride, very comfortable. Still looks great. It has been reliable the whole time I have had it. I enjoy driving it immensely. I have had no problems with this car whatsoever. I owned a Miata previously and enjoyed that too so I feel Mazdas are great cars.

- Lisa P

Fun, reliable with some caveats.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The Mazda 3 is reliable and fun to drive. The features are great, but I do worry about the long term durability of the accessories. The black leather seats are heated which is nice but in the summer, they are extremely hot and the air conditioning is not up to cooling the cabin.

- Steven M

Mazda 3 2012 still good as new

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

I only encounter a few minor issues when taking off from a stop light in the rain and as I do more highway driving I've noticed it doesn't handle great over 85 miles an hour, but style, comfort, reliability, features, usability are all A+ for 2012 and have held up extremely well

- Kitty H

good fuel efficient touring car

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

It's a dual transmission 6 speed manual/automatic. It gets about 35 mpg city/45 mpg highway. It corners well with a low turning radius. It's not good on snow and ice, it's not heavy enough. There is not much space for luggage but there is enough seating, 5 can sit comfortably.

- John M

Drives great, no road noise, very roomy

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

It drives really smooth. I can quickly get up to speed. Limited road noise. Lots of legroom and trunk storage. Lots of options for music, including, radio, CD, Bluetooth, satellite radio, Aux. The only downside is the headrests are very uncomfortable and tilt your head forward.

- Krystal W

Overall, it is a great mid-sized sedan for $20, 000 and gets 40 miles a gallon.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It is a very reliable vehicle for $20, 000. It has great pickup for a 4-cylinder and gets about 40-miles per gallon on the highway. The comfort is okay, the interior is not my favorite and I have had issues with rattling and some of the molding has come up after too much heat.

- Nick W

Snug for a car seat, but reliable!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The only problem we've encountered is with its size. We bought the car before we knew we were having a baby, and car seats do not fit easily in our car. But it has been reliable, and has cost us almost nothing in maintenance costs. We expect to keep it for several more years.

- Chelsea R

love my Mazda, it's always been a great car

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

great car runs great has never gave me any issues at all, I really enjoy the Mazda it's fast and all around a great car I would highly recommend getting a Mazda,, the parts can sometime become a little pricey but most of the time you don't really have to replace many parts ,

- William C

Faulty warning lights, great comfortability.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had to change the brakes on my vehicle often. Also, the tires deflate very quickly and the low tire pressure light is always on. It has a great turn radius and very comfortable seats. Windshield wipers need some adjustment and I do not like how there is no back wiper.

- Jordan S

Overall review of 2012 Mazda 3i.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Overall decent car - purchased in 2015 used and have not had to replace anything major with the car. Traction could be better, but with good tires, it is okay. Would recommend for a first time car for a new driver. If you have a family, I would get a slightly larger vehicle.

- Bridget S

Love everything about it.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Love it, runs smoothly. I can drive go fast in it, and it's also very safe. My boyfriend is letting me borrow it. Has a great speaker system. Automatic. Love it love it. Runs really well. Can drive fast but safe. Only thing is it is very low so hits dips a lot of the time.

- Karen P

Mazda amazing car is the best car to drive.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Mazda 3 is amazing to drive. Save has too if you just drive from home and work that is the best car to drive in. My kids like it so much they had so much fun when they ride in to my car. And the price is really cheap too if you guys want to buy your next car buy Mazda 3!!

- Maria B

My car is crash test safety approved and tested

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like my pearl white Mazda 3 sedan. It has a moonroof and spoiler so it looks sporty, the interior has a nice design which I like. The upholstery is black which makes it hotter in the summer months. It has been very reliable for me so overall I'm pleased with my vehicle.

- Meagan W

Amazing car 10/10 would buy again.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love my car! It has good control, Bluetooth, heat and air conditioning, and mine is silver, which I love very much. My only issue was getting used to the brake controls, which were very touchy at first. But now I love them, as I do tend to slam on my brakes a few times.

- Sydney M

Not just for 20 somethings!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The Mazda 3 is a sporty mid-sized sedan that is fun to drive and gets great gas mileage. Maneuverability in traffic and during parking makes it a breeze to around town and accomplish your errands. They ecoboost motor has good pickup making highway travel a fun and easy.

- Michelle K

Sleek edgy and reliable with comfort for you and your family and friends!!

2012 Mazda Mazda3 Base

Love this car it drives so smooth and effortless. It is both reliable and quality made.!it gets great mileage and is good for driving long distance as well as for short periodic trips. It is also very comfortable and support fitting. I would recommend this car to anyone

- Nicole T

It is a very comfortable ride that get great gas mileage!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

My car gets great gas mileage. It is a good size and very easy to maneuver. I wish it had more gages on the dash, specifically oil and engine temp. gauges. Also, it's floor panels seem lightly insulated for sound. Hitting a small pothole sounds like I hit a crater.

- Erin P

I would chose differently

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Battery seems to be drained excessively quick. Even with brand new ones being put in they are quick to drain and be problematic in the winter. The tires get worn down quickly and I have had many issues with flats. In retrospect I would've chosen a more reliable option.

- Jack I

Compact great gas mileage starter car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It is good on gas mileage and compact. It has a smaller backseat. It is not super good for car seats, so I would not get it for a family car. It is not a very good winter ca. It rides low so it gets stuck if there is measurable snow. Other than that I am happy with it.

- Lauren B

A very fun at to drive with great fuel economy. Perfect for commuting

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

No problems at all.. regular oil changes.. tire rotations. Will last a long time if you keep up with routine maintenance. Very comfortable and fun to drive. A little cramped in the back seat for longer legs. Good trunk space..tight handling. A pretty fun car to drive.

- Brent G

Perfect condition at 7 years of driving.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

Fine no problems. Mine is 7 years old that is about it. My radio does not really work now. But it starts up and runs perfect still could drive it for many more years! The color is bright green so I named my car Kermit. Typical work done on the car nothing to costly.

- Megan P

On the side windows there are lights that turn on when a car passes you.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

My car is amazing, it is safe and has a lot of room. It may look small on the outside but once you get in you have a lot of legroom in the back. The trunk can fit a lot of stuff and when you put the back seats down it is super big. It is very nice for moving stuff.

- Lily H

A Mazda 3 is an affordable car with modern touches

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

I love my Mazda3! The car drives great and is super cute. It is a perfect first car or a perfect car for a young family. It is quite comfortable and spacious. The reliability great and it is easy to maintain. I really cannot think of anything negative about my car.

- Jackie P

It has been worth the money I spent on it. It continues to get me where I need to go without any hassles.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I basically love my car. It is the highest quality car I have ever had and in the years I've owned it I have only had to replace the battery. Of course, I do wish it had more modern technology, especially GPS. I am forever getting lost and that would really help.

- Nancy A

Pros and cons with a Mazda 3

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

One problem was the mass air flow sensor needed changed. Another problem was the Bluetooth in the dashboard went bad. Which cost $230. But great gas mileage. Overall it is a great car for a first time buyer or college student. Eventually going to buy a newer model

- Matt C

Reliable, practical car for young professional.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had my car for 5 years, and have had no issues with it. I take it in for regular inspections, but other than that my car requires very little maintenance. It drives very well for a small, affordable car, even on highways. The gas mileage is also very good.

- Evelyn C

Great car with some tricks.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

Car drives very nicely, never really had a problem with it besides the fact that engine light turns on quite often. Have taken to mechanic and nothing is wrong just sensors are on. Airbag warning light is on for no reason. But overall it is a good reliable car.

- Steph S

There is extremely limited leg room in the back.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This is my fifth Mazda and the best one yet. And that is saying a lot because I have loved all of them. I am about to have 140, 000 mile service and in the entire time I have owned the car I have spent nothing in addition to regular maintenance. Not one penny!

- Karen P

What driving a mazda 3 is like.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Haven't had any problems. Runs great. Is very reliable. We use it to take trips quite a bit. Pretty decent on gas. Great speaker system. Not very roomy in the back. Great trunk space. My husband uses it for work and it has helped him stay on track and Focused.

- Michaela P

It's a great, reliable car. Gets me from point a to point b with no problems.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

My car does not how power locks, also the cars interior rips easily. However as long as I've had the car I have not had any technical issues. The car runs great, excellent ac. I love how spacious the car is even though it looks small on the outside. Great car.

- Tori V

Fun car to drive with nice features and good gas mileage.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I really like to drive my Mazda 3. It is very dependable and has lots of features that I enjoy. I do wish that it had a backup camera and a GPS. I also wish the seats were a little more comfortable. However, the car gets great gas mileage and is fun to drive.

- Melanie M

Fun car to drive but always needs repairs.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 s Touring

Expensive to repair because transmission needs to be lowered for major repairs like clutch and timing chain. Interior is a little cheap, falls apart easily. Fast car. Ok on gas mileage. The Bose sound system is faulty. Car suspension and alignment is wobbly.

- Michelle A

Mazda 3 review: great family car

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

This car is a great family car. It's really good on gas and mileage. Rarely had any issues with the car besides your typical flat tire. Has a good amount of trunk space if needed for going on trips or hauling certain things. Can seat up to 5 people at once.

- Alyssa R

This vehicle is a great long term vehicle and is very reliable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 Base

My vehicle is approaching 100,000 miles and still runs very smoothly. It is a little outdated, but has an Aux jack, and CD player, automatic windows and cruise control. It is spacious and functional. The hatchback cover can be cumbersome, but is removable.

- Kayla L

Gas mileage is wonderful! Very reliable little car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Touring

Love this car, only problem is not big enough for my family. Love the gas mileage. Sunroof, roomy hatchback. Boss speakers, heated leather seats. Navigator I don't use. But love Bluetooth. Great little car in all. Has never broke down. Reliable for sure.

- Amber B

No issues, good car, very reliable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

I have only had one issue with my car, this year 2019 I had to replaced a module in the computer that burnt out my spark plugs. This is the only issue I have had and I have over 100,000 miles on my vehicle. Very reliable, and sporty. Good on gas mileage.

- Jessica B

Fantastic and fun compact sedan

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i Sport

The Mazda 3 is such a fun car to drive. The 2012 version is no frills, but the sound system is wonderful and has all the necessary outlets (USB, audio jack) to plug your devices in. Really reliable car with great gas mileage - nearly 40 mpg on highway.

- Jay V

An interesting detail is the windshield wiper sensor.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I really like my vehicle. It take good gas mileage and is a very reliable car. The seats are leather, the windshield wipers have a setting where they can sense how fast they need to wipe as well. It is a small car but that is what I personally prefer.

- Taylor H

Economy and reliable car for drive long time

2012 Mazda Mazda3 i SV

Mazda 3 is so reliable car, economy in gas, very nice for drive, nice gadgets indoor , I have polarized it so is make it to look sport car, have clothes seats, no sunroof , automatic System on the locks, very big trunk too, runs so good on expressways

- Angela C

No performance or reliability issues.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

No problems with performance. The vehicle is very reliable. Features include 4 doors, Bluetooth connect enabled, phone charging, auxiliary input cord. Comfort seats. Heating and air conditioning. Never had any problems with performance or reliability.

- Ashley G

Mazda3: take care of it and it'll last a lifetime.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Bought new in 2012, has 135k miles on it. Timing chain (not timing belt) broke at 108k miles, had to replace the engine. Bad wheel bearing at 120k miles. Otherwise, completely reliable, great performance that is been consistent despite the many miles.

- Julie S

My vehicle has always been great to me. I have never had a major issue with it.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Never really had a major issue with my vehicle. It is amazing on gas and it rides smooth. The seats are comfortable and have never had an uncomfortable ride on long road trips. These road trips include 16hr or more trips that I have done three times.

- Ulysses V

Mazda is a WONDERFUL investment

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The gas mileage is amazing! The turn radius is perfect for always getting a parking spot no matter where I go. I do wish that the back seat had a little more legroom for passengers, but for short road-trips, it's perfect. Overall my favorite car!

- Micah J

It is very durable and I anticipate getting at least 250,000 miles from it before I have to get another one.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love that my car has good gas mileage, back seats that lay down so large objects can be carried, and it has a very small turning radius so I can turn around in a street without stopping several times. I wish there was more back seat leg room.

- Jerri H

It's a great commuter car - it gets you where you need to go at an affordable price

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like my car because it's been good to me over the years. I hardly ever have problems with it and the mazda dealership is close and the people there are nice. However, my family has outgrown the car and the size is starting to wear on us all.

- April G

Great gas mileage (roughly 30 miles per gallon in the city).

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Great gas mileage and reliable. Oil is a little expensive, but considering the gas mileage, it is a good trade off. The hatchback with fold down seats means I can treat it almost like a small pickup truck with the amount of stuff I can haul.

- Jared V

Most important is that it is very safe in an accident as I had one.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Love my car! I started with a lease and than I bought it. Drives very comfortably and has all the features that I could want. Gets good gas mileage and is very safe. I have moved a few times in this car and with the hatch down, fits a lot!

- Stacey F

The Mazda three is a reliable vehicle, but not especially comfortable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The vehicle is quite reliable. It doesn't get the kind of gas milage you might expect. The seats are not very comfortable, especially the back seats. The view from the driver's seat seems a little off. It takes getting used to, for sure.

- Patricia M

The engine is bigger than it needs to be so it has great pick-me-up, but doesn't get as good of gas mileage as other cars its size.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The car is spacious for a car, and small enough that it's easy to park and gets decent gas mileage. My only real complaint is that it doesn't get as good of gas mileage as other cars its size. It is also a fashionable looking car.

- Amanda H

It makes even driving to work fun. It is good on gas mileage too.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

My vehicle is fun to drive, you can drive manually or put it in automatic mode. My mazda can get up and go if I need it to. I don't have any dislikes other than I wish my interior wasn't all black, it gets very hot in the summer.

- Stephanie Y

It's so fun to drive, and the turning is amazing!!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love my car. It's sporty but very comfortable. It can accelerate pretty quickly and smoothly, and the turning is amazing. It grips the road well on turns while driving fast, and also the turning radius is great for U-turns!

- Erin B

Very roomy and good on gas!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

While I enjoy having a hatch and the roominess for cargo that that entails, I do not like the compactness and sitting low in this vehicle compared to my previous SUV. It has been very reliable and good on gas however.

- Dana R

I deliver pizzas and it has lasted me a long time. it is a reliable car that I would recommend.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

One day it got really hot and the plastic next to the display screen that shows the time got kind of warped. Other than that it has been a really reliable car. I would recommend it to family and friends I love my car.

- Nichole M

It gets really great gas mileage and it has low maintenance needs.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have over 160,000 miles on it and have had little maintenance. It has been a good little car with great gas mileage and if very comfortable. My only complaint is the suspension has always been a little too stiff.


My car is very sporty and fun to drive and does great with gas mileage and trunk space.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like that the car gets very good gas mileage. It is very comfortable to drive with everything I need at my fingertips. The only complaint I have is the back window slopes a lot and snow sits there blocking my view.

- Garret A

Excellent commuter vehicle.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This car is great on gas. Very economical. Smooth ride. Seats are comfortable. Not much leg room in rear seats for passengers. Love the radio controls on the steering wheel and the hands free Bluetooth connectivity.

- Scott F

It is nice to drive and does not present any big issues.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The car drives well and has no major issues. The gas mileage is decent and is not a concern. Amenities such as air conditioning are good, the only issue is that the radio has occasional problems that require repair.

- Peter Z

My Mazda has some electrical problems.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The biggest problem that bothers me the most is the locks. You have to manually lock each car door before you get out because it will not do it automatically. Just an electrical problem that is not cheap to fix.

- Kelsey S

It's a zippy little car, with a lot of personality and great mileage.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It is a bright blue hatchback. I love that it is easy to spot, and makes a great fashion statement. I also love that it gets great mileage, and has great steering. My only complaint is that it is rough on tires.

- Amanda H

It gets great gas mileage!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

There has not been any major issues with my car since I bought it brand new. It is very reliable. It is definitely not the best car to have if you have kids in car seats. Not a lot of space in the backseat.

- Bridget D

It's easy to park on LA streets.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like that the Mazda 3 gets good fuel economy for a non-hybrid. However, my next vehicle will certainly be either a hybrid or electric vehicle. I like the tight turning radius and satellite radio as well.

- Derek S

It is a great car, it says hello and goodbye every time you turn on the car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love the car. It is very peppy, and easy to handle. The gas mileage is great. The dashboard gets warped from being in the sun, it curves up away from the top screen and creates a gap in the interior.

- Jennifer S

I purchased my car from DriveTime. It was affordable and they worked well with my payments.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love the speed, mileage, accelerating that the car carries. I most definitely like the features, such as Bluetooth, aux, and sunroof. The color is also blue, a metallic blue, not your average color.

- Raven C

Comfortable compact sedan with plenty of storage and great gas mileage if you are not looking for a luxury ride.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like the overall size and the gas mileage is great. It is a fun car to drive. I dislike how loud it is inside the vehicle and wish it had a more powerful engine for quicker acceleration from a stop.


Fair gas mileage. Fits 5 people.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The mazda 3 is a good car to get you from point A to point B. Gas mileage is not too bad. Not the best car if you have more than 5 people and if you are going anywhere not fit for small and low cars.

- Kristal C

So very safe and dependable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love my Mazda as it is safe and gets great gas mileage. I like that even though it is a compact car it's still roomy enough and great trunk space. I do wish it had a little more horsepower though.

- Kelly s

2012 Mazda 3 is a very reliable car.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I have had this vehicle for three years. It's a 2012 and i have not had any problems with it thus far. It has automatic everything, navigation, a sunroof and heated seats. It is very comfortable.

- Samantha S

Cheap, reliable and fun to drive.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

The price is not expensive. Gas mileage is around 30 mpg. Definitely fun to drive. I have it for almost 6 years and so far I only have done oil change and battery change. no major problem at all.

- Jesse W

Fashionable reliability at an affordable price.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It's an absolutely rock solid car that's fun to drive and looks great. I have had absolutely zero issues. The only maintenance expenses have been for routine wear items (brakes, wipers, etc.).

- Derek V

My Mazda 3 gets great gas mileage.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This car is an excellent daily driver. The gas mileage is upward of 34 average and almost 40 hwy. I have had no issues in my years of having it. Just keep up with maintenance and she runs great.

- Benjamin J

Small and sporty without breaking the bank.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Comfortable great on gas and it is a nice size. The Mazda dealer I go to is so helpful and does great work. Has Bluetooth for music and calls while driving and a nice lighted interior at night.

- Brandon I

It is extremely dependable.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It gets really good gas mileage and it is reliable. It is comfortable to drive. It handles really good snow. I wish I had purchased the Mazda CX-5 though. That one will be my next vehicle.

- Terri T

People should know that my car is useful and is aging well

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It is a great hatchback and it drives smoothly. I have had it for over 6 years and it is still in great shape. I think Mazda is a great brand and they make great cars that retain their values

- Christina C

My Mazda 3 is very reliable - I love it.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Sleek styling; fun to drive; good mileage; reliable. The sound system could use some fine tuning, but that is my only negative. Very affordable and very adaptable- would buy a Mazda again.

- Lisa C

Back seat headroom is low if you're trying to put a toddler in a car seat.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Like sedans, it's good on gas and has nice lines. The price was reasonable and it is front wheel drive. The moonroof exploded without any object hitting it so I wonder about It's quality.

- Helen D

It is reliable and spacious.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Overall the car is a great car. Comfortable for my family of 3. Spacious trunk. Great gas mileage. Great back seat space. Extremely reliable. No major fixes after 6 years of ownership.

- Lisa M

It is manual and the sound system is very good.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I got my Mazda 3 brand new in 2012 and it has taken me back and forth across the country more than 5 different times. It is extremely reliable and durable. I am happy with my purchase.

- Andrew R

It gets up to 40 mpg on the highway, 35 in the city.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It drives great, the sound system is phenomenal, and it gets excellent gas mileage. The only thing I do not like is that it is a little tight when there are 3 adults in the backseat.

- Rachel D

How great the gas mileage is.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like the fuel efficiency of my car. What I do not like is how low it sits to the ground the clearance makes it difficult drive on uneven road. The cars stock speakers are great.

- Adam S

It's very small it fits one car seat somewhat comfortably but if you have 2 car seats everyone will be cramped.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I liked the sound system it was very nice. I blew a fuse and can't fix the electrical problem in it so my stereo doesn't work anymore. It is too small for me I need a bigger car.

- Amanda D

It gets very good gas mileage and requires little maintenance.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like my vehicle because it is very reliable. It is compact and gets great gas mileage. I like the way it handles. I have looked at newer same model vehicles, but I prefer mine.

- Rebecca V

This car is stylish and drives well. You would not be disappointed!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This car is fuel efficient. It is easy to drive and very stylish. I have had very few mechanical problems. A cosmetic problem that I had was a recall and was fixed at no expense.

- Cali F

It is more of a sports car than a family vehicle.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love that it has great gas mileage and the back seat folds down for extra trunk space. The Audio speakers are great quality. I do wish there was a little more back seat space.

- Eva H

It does not drive the best in the snow, you'll need to purchase a good set of tires.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I like the reliability, as I have over 50,000 miles and no issues with the car. It' simple and smooth to drive with easy features. It's just a little small and not that flashy.

- Gary F

My Mazda is reliable and fun

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I really like my Mazda 3 because it's sporty and cute. I love the dash interface and it's good on gas. I wish it was better in the snow though. It's got a low 5 yr cost to own

- Lacey C

It is sport while also being practical. It is worth what you pay for it as long as you take care of it by performing routine maintenance etc.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

I love the body style of this year of car and the color. It is a reliable car. Factory tires are not good in the snow, I would recommend at least two snow tires for the front.

- Cheri D

It is a great car that gets fantastic gas mileage.

2012 Mazda Mazda3

It is a nice standard sedan that is good for small families. I like the use of technology in the car but dislike how small the back seat is. I would purchase this car again.

- Kyle F

Great miles per gallon for gas mileage!

2012 Mazda Mazda3

This car gets great gas mileage. It is very comfortable and drives extremely well. There is enough room for a car seat and two people to sit comfortably in the backseat.
