The Mazda3 is among the most well-rounded models in the small car category. It is quieter, rides more comfortably, and is more agile and fuel efficient than its Protegé predeccesor. Moreover, it returned very impressive fuel economy, especially for a conventional gasoline-powered vehicle with an automatic transmission. The Madza3's very good interior quality stands out in a category where many vehicles are cheaply finished.

What Owners Say

"Car shook when at highway speeds. Mechanic drove it and could not find the problem (he did not drive at highway speeds). I took it to another mechanic who took the wheels off and he found two problems right away, the caliper on the passenger side front wheel and the ball joint"

Douglas Y., ON (2009 Mazda 3 Unsure 2.0-L 4 Cyl)

"WORN BALL JOINTS"

Anonymous, IL (2009 Mazda 3 Touring 2.3-L 4 Cyl)

"Dealer recommends replacing some steering bushings. I'll wait until they get worse. Getting near 100,000 miles, but I would expect these to have lasted a few more years before going (almost) bad"

Anonymous, TX (2009 Mazda 3 Unsure 2.3-L 4 Cyl)

Anonymous, OR (2009 Mazda 3 Unsure 2.3-L 4 Cyl)

"When driving over small imperfections in the road the car felt as if it were floating, drifting a few inches sideways. Larger bumps were fine, and there was no problem with steering in general. But over small things the shocks and struts couldn't compensate"

Dave R., MA (2009 Mazda 3 Mazdaspeed 2.3-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Right rear strut leaked all hydraulic oil not as a result of damage to strut"

"The EGR valve periodically forces the "Check Engine" light to come on, as diagnosed by a scanner at the auto parts store.

Anonymous, MI (2009 Mazda 3 Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
Transmission computer

"We had to replace the transmission control module (TCM) with about 125,000 miles on it. This is considered minor by your classification but the cost normally runs between $900 - $1,300, so it's major to us. The dealerships were too costly, so I located an independent supplier of an OEM module, picked it up myself, and took it to an independent mechanic to install. My total cost came to $725 plus a rental car for several days. I consider this a premature failure of the part"
