    I've had it for exactly two months and right under 2000 miles. So far, very impressed but with a few minor complaints. The engine (2.5) and transmission seem to be sorted well with excellent power and smooth operation. I'm easy on the gas pedal, so I'm getting around 34.5 MPG in mixed...

    When I was searching for my next car, reliability was a major factor in my decision making. I found the True Delta site to be very helpful because it shows by model and year the reported repairs for a car and uses it as an indicator of reliability. It also breaks down repair types (e.g...

    Just completed a round trip road trip from Los Angeles to Seattle in my SGT. Great long distance cruiser. Averaged about 35mpg with a few tanks in the 38's. Plenty of power in the mountain passes with 3 people and luggage. Negatives: Instrument panel information can be difficult to read in...

Do you think the car deserves it? 2014 Mazda3 | First Drive - Consumer Reports News As a result of...
