My first Mazda: the review.

I do not like the way when I turn it takes a while to shift gears from r to d but besides that the performance is pretty good. The seats are comfortable to an extent, long drives are kind of uncomfortable. It has a touch screen with a mechanical knob which I love as its super handy when you want to move around the screen quickly. You get a lot of safety features with this car, this is the main reason I purchased this car. It also has blind spot monitors, rear view camera, and its safety features are customizable. I personally do not mind it for now because I intend to trade in for a model 3, as gas on this car is incredibly expensive. I was under the impression Mazda is supposed to be a gas saving vehicle but unfortunately not. In the end, the Mazda3 is beautiful and it gets the job done. It is not a horrible car, just not the best in my personal opinion. I have my first maintenance appointment coming up so we will see how it goes.

The Mazda 3's safety auto.

The sedan has plenty of leg and seating room. The gas mileage is wonderful and it uses regular. Great sound system and it has a sporty look and feel to it. Quite a few gadgets which are useful if one is driving a lot and also in cold weather like seat warmers and a dial and push button control system in the center part of the car so one can keep their eyes on the road if one has to change the system without looking away from the road to use the main entertainment system. Two of the best features are the backup camera and the side view warning lights with warning beeps that lets the driver know that a car is driving next to your vehicle in a blind spot. The same warning beeps lets you know that you are driving out of your lane.

A decent car with reasonably high in-city mileage, affordable and reliable.

I bought a used 2015 Mazda3 touring, 4 door sedan from gem Mazda in Tallahassee. It was in reasonably good shape when I got it, and the car handles very well. Suited very well for short distances, and I am sure it will deliver even if I took it for a longer drive. The brakes are always something to watch out for, mostly because they are the later paddle brakes and tend to need frequent maintenance and checks. Otherwise, it is a very comfortable car, and affordable to a student such as myself. The mileage is also much higher than my previous car (an ancient 2004 Hyundai Elantra) and has been saving me a good amount of money since I bought it. I would definitely recommend this model to anyone looking to buy it.
