My Mazda3 is excellent on gas. I get about 35 miles to a gallon!

My Mazda 3 is awesome! It's loaded! I chose an electric blue color. It has leather seats, power windows, power seats, heated seats, heated steering wheel, and front and rear defrost. It has navigation, and I love that it has a sunroof! It has a flip plate that comes up that you can customize. I set it to show the actual speed limit and how fast I'm driving. When it's started up you can barely hear it's even on. It's push button start, which is so convenient. I leased my 2018 Mazda3 for 36 months, and I have just over 2000 miles on it. I've had zero problems with it thus far.

Gas efficient car, unique features.

It is a smooth riding car that is great on mileage. It has a unique touch screen feature that is enabled only when you are in park, and has a control panel below the gear shift for whenever you need to navigate the screen while driving. The controls on the steering wheel are easy to find when you want to set cruise control or skip a song on your music (if not on the radio). It is a very reliable car that will get you where you need to be.

- Meagan N

Mazda- one of the best brands hands down.

I really like the size and features of my car. It is compact and in an affordable price range, but comes with nice features for the price. Compared to other cars in a similar size (Civic, Corolla, etc. ) I like the overall look of my car and quality and features much better. My family has had Mazda's for several years now and we have absolutely no complaints about reliability, durability and overall satisfaction with the brand.
