In Canada - the 3 is a massive seller for them. Mazda is actually a very meaningful player up here! So it baffles me why they're not stronger in the US.

This said - their success up here is despite themselves. Their sales staff are beyond useless; in fact - they're the reason we DID NOT buy a Mazda 3 for my wife.

Mazda doesn't chase EZ financing deals like Honda does.

The tail of the hatch looks too stubby and awkward - the hatch generally looks like a mess and is one of least attractive and desirable hatches on sale IMO.

I do like the general shape and design of the sedan, but the design is letdown by messy detailing, particularly around the nose, and together with the fact that there are better alternatives, these would be enough for me to discount considering it as a purchase or future lease.

My Euro roots are showing. I like the Hatchback better. More practical. Then I was one of the few back in 1987 who bought a hatchback version of the Chevy Nova.....
