Why the 2010 Mazda Mazda3?

Handling

excellent steering feel (not the steering wheel though), good cornering, great straight road tracking

Safety & braking

AWESOME brakes, good safety ratings

Materials & workmanship

Almost as good as a VW rabbit/jetta, otherwise better than all others in this semi-economy class. More thoughtful in design and materials than other Asian vehicles. Ford focus is the only American vehicle that comes close.

Reliability & durability

I have been impressed with previous Mazdas I have owned. The 3 was well rated with CR and other automotive sites.

Brand reputation & image

Zoom Zoom is an effective marketing strategy. The original Rx7 (which I owned) put real go-cart style sports car performance in an affordable bracket. They continue to do so with the RX8, as well as the 3 and 6

Why Not the 2010 Mazda Mazda3?

Exterior styling

the 2010 remake takes time to get used to. However, the interior is so much better in the 10 vs. the 09, that I was willing to learn to love to exterior. The 09 interior kept me from looking at one of those.
