Mazda Owner Car Reviews

2010 Mazda 3 Neo review

I bought this car a bit over a month ago from its original owner with 72,000km indicated. It's my first car that I bought for $7000 but after 12 months rego and title transfer it came to a bit over $8000. The previous owner had the windows tinted front and rear. I specifically looked for a Mazda 3 after the year 2010, as a few of the base models from 2009 were not equipped with side or curtain airbags...

2017 Mazda CX-3 Akari (FWD) review

I was looking to replace my 2012 Mazda 2 and was searching for something slightly larger but still akin to what I was used to. I was also looking for a technology upgrade and the Mazda CX-3 Akari certainly does not disappoint there! The MZD Connectivity is very easy to use – love the fact I can use my phone hands-free and receive texts and have them read out...

1974 Mazda Savanna RX3 Super Deluxe review

After decades of reading every issue of Fast Fours and Rotaries magazine, I finally saved enough to buy my teenage poster car. Most of my friends had the Lamborghini Countach LP5000 or the Ferrari Testarossa poster. I, on the other hand, had a lineup of Mazda R100s, RX2s, 3s and 4s. After searching for years I found a close to factory original RX3 sedan...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Safety review

I bought this good-looking Mazda 6 GT Wagon diesel last July 2016. I have had this car for just over a year now and thought I’d share my experience. Why the GT and Diesel? Well, glad you asked! Personally, I believe the GT is worth every penny with its head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, moonroof, nice comfortable leather seats, the beautiful 19-inch wheels and other extras you get when compared to the Touring variant...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Safety review

Bought this brand new in 2016 to replace an increasingly unreliable Peugeot 407 coupe. I decided on a wagon for the extra versatility. It certainly looks good – slightly aggressive and imposing but with a rakish rear. Space-wise, it is large enough for the three of us in my family. As many testers have said, the noise suppression is not as good as it should be for a 'premium' car...

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...
