YearBody/PowertrainComment
20114dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Well priced, very reasonable, plus they often have 0% financing.
20104dr Hatch turbocharged 263hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Compared to the Rallyart Sportback and the WRX wagon, you get a lot for your money.

20124dr Hatch 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The price difference between this and the Elantra is a few thousand dollars when looking at features. When adding extended warranties, the gap widens.
20104dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Another dealership would not even consider discounting the 2010 Mazda 3, only offering incentives on remaining 2009 models.
20104dr Hatch 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Decent value, but too expensive considering the drivetrain problems I have experienced.
20094dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Discounts are harder to come by than other brands, particularly domestic automakers due to the popularity of the 3.

high price of car and interest

I think this car is slightly overpriced. Though depending on when and where you buy, there is potential for a good deal.
20074dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
CVT FWD
To get the essential features, you are forced to buy overpriced bundles with trivial value features.

seems like for 25k fully loaded yu shld get leather and a little bit more thoughtfully tuned suspension
