- Poor Fuel Milage. I am lucky to get 300 miles per tank!
Purchased As New
Bought this car brand new for a really good price, while comparing it to Honda fit, Toyota Yaris, Matrix, Corrola and Nissan Versa, I find this Mazda3 better looking and fun to drive with standard options that are more then enough at few thousands less.
With only 79 miles on the car, first gas tank got me 411 miles or so.
After that I am lucky to get 300 miles. The low gas light comes on areound 270 or so. I use Premium gas to get the best mileage while with plus and regular gasoline got even worst result. I drive around 70 miles per hour on highway and not hard on the cars.
The dealer tells me the ethenal in gas, but they also say that on the sticker it also says that this car will probably get 18 to 22 miles per gallon in small print in which they are right about that fine print part.
The Good Year summer performacne tires are not so bad, at least they are quite but ride rough wich is normal for any summer performance tires, not to mention I really don't like Good Year tires. During snow, car did very good since it's a front wheel drive car. I am happy with that part as the car handles well.
Maybe there is an updated software for the car that might help it get better gas milage as I think Mazda will soon have to do something about it.
