2010 Mazda 3 Sedan S 1.6 gas
Good, but expensive for the price
Noise from the rear of the vehicle, especially with pavement imperfections. These sounds appeared at 18000 km, and progressively increased until I sold the car.
It is a good car, but not great as you might believe.
The engine of 1.6 is small, and somewhat old for the weight of the car. Overtaking is difficult, the car needs to accelerate hard to get momentum on the highway.
The car is especially stable on corners, and it is very easy to drive.
There are many parts of the car that are totally exposed; it was common to find new paint defects or scratches after a shopping day in the mall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
