Mazda 3 2007 Manual. Its taken time for Mazda to build up a reputation in the UK, for producing affordable, reliable and technologically advanced cars. The Mazda 3 is a great example, with newly refurbished alloys in gun metal grey and a fresh paint job. This car lives up to its reputation in every respect. Its ride is reminiscent of a much larger car than it is. You wont be disappointed with economy and the trouble free ownership.
