2013 Mazda3 Review

WAAAAAAAA???????????  Yes, you read that correctly!! I have been driving this cute little Mazda3 since Thursday and I’m getting 40.8 MPG!!!!!  I live in Southern California I do a LOT of stop and go driving. 40.8 MPG is amazing!
Alice and I took a nice long drive today to the San Diego Zoo.  I love everything about the driver seat. The seat itself is comfy!! It hugs you! The seats are heated, with 5 levels of heat (heaven!). LOVE that!! The steering wheel has it all, phone, radio, cruise, entertainment controls all easily accessible! LOVE that!! I never had to take my hands off the wheel. Off to the right of the steering wheel is a crescent moon that’s where you can see MPG, temperature, radio you name it the information is there.

More than anything I am IN LOVE with the BLIND SPOT monitoring System.  Are you ready for this?? The car knows when someone is in your blind spot!!  You can’t always see every car on the road. That’s why the available class-leading Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) System is here to help. It utilizes motion sensor technology to automatically warn you when a vehicle enters your blind spot by illuminating an icon in the corresponding side-view mirror. The icon blinks and a warning chime sounds when the driver initiates the turn signal.
Talk about a safety PLUS!!!!  WOW!! 

When you get in the car that area lights up with Zoom Zoom and when you turn off the car?
Such a polite little car!

Check back for more information on the Mazda3! 

Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda3 Grand Touring for the purpose of my review. (They aren’t letting me keep this one either I checked) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way.

    Nice gas mileage! Especially if you’re going stop and go a lot! I really like the navigational and communication screen feature, it seems all the new cars have them. And the blind spot detector! AMAZING! It probably prevents a lot of accidents and this way you don’t have to risk extending the neck too far to check. Loving this Mazda 3 already!
