Mazda Owner Car Reviews

2005 Mazda 3 Neo review

The car wasn't made to break any sort of land speed records and with that in mind, the little 2L LF-DE engine was just what it needed. Making 104Kw at 6500rpm it wasn't the fastest car around. But for the punch you got, the fuel economy wasn't too bad either. Using 8.5L/100km in the manual and around 9L/100km in the auto, the Mazda 3 was a nice balance of speed and economy...

2017 Mazda CX-5 GT review

When buying the Mazda we were also looking at the Jeep Cherokee Limited, the Volkswagen Tiguan Highline, the Hyundai Tucson Highlander and the Kia Sportage Platinum. The three that really stood out to us were the Mazda, the Jeep and the Volkswagen. They seemed like the best quality and looked as if they were built a little better than the other rivals...

2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami (FWD) review

After reading Will's owner review of his parents' X5, and listening to him on the CarAdvice Podcast, I was tempted to write up a little owner review. I'm 13 and have a strong interest in cars, but have been relatively quiet in the corner reading/watching the news, reviews and comments present on CarAdvice, YouTube and various magazines...

2003 Mazda 323 Astina SP20 review

The white dials with race red backlight behind the leather wrapped Nardi Torini steering wheel give this car a distinctively sporty feel when you get in...

2016 Mazda CX-9 GT (FWD) Review

I purchased this car to support our growing family, having had 5 years of good service from our Ford Territory TS Diesel. The ability to 50:50 split the third row seats, over the Ford, seems a small feature, but a necessity for our family of 4 children. When looking for a replacement SUV we had the Mazda, Ford Everest (RWD), Kia Sorento and Mitsubishi Pajero Sports on our list...

2014 Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport (4x2) Review

I knew a lot about the CX-5 from reading many reviews and articles about about them on CarAdvice.com and other websites. I test drove a few cars before picking this one and do not regret it. We decided on the Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport  4X2, which cost around $34,000. I like the CX-5’s exterior design.  It has a really stylish body compared to its competitors in the category...

2016 Mazda CX-3 S Touring (AWD) review

I love the look of my white Mazda CX-3. I find it economical and a pleasure to drive. I travel approximately 60kms a day, and it costs me about $40 to $50 a week to fill it it up, depending on the price of unleaded fuel and I alway put in 95 RON and above. I do find it disappointing however, in that there is no middle console and only a single CD player, my previous Mazda had a 6 stacker and I do miss this feature...

2016 Mazda CX-5 Akera (4x4) Review

Performance and economy of the diesel engine is very impressive and well worth the price premium over the petrol variant. The automatic transmission and drivetrain are silky smooth. Servicing cost to date has been reasonable. Reliability has been excellent with no faults, either major or minor, to report to date although the vehicle has travelled less than 40,000km...

2016 Mazda MX-5 GT Review

Mazda has put a lot of thought into this car and the end result is a very useable car that has an aura of quality about it. Great fun to drive and everything is easy to use. Seats are comfortable with a good driving position. The soft top is quick and easy to use. I am 1.8 metres tall and have not had any issues at all...

2016 Mazda 6 Touring Review

I have just completed 1500km in my new car received two weeks ago. The diesel has bags of torque once car is rolling but suffers from turbo lag when taking off from a stand still. this is particularly bad when trying to get away from a stop sign on tee intersections which lack clear visibility and demand quick getaways...

1990 Mazda 323 Astina Review

I bought one of these recently, and it had very low kilometres on the clock. It's a great-looking car for its era, and I dare say an SP model in good condition may well attract decent money in a few years. Japan was at the height of its economic bubble when this car was developed, and as such Mazda made a stunning-looking, high-quality hatch for its time...
