Re: MAZDA 3 SEDAN ROAD NOISE!
I have a new 2010 mazda3 and i love it, there is mild roadnoise but no more than any other compact car in this segment.The ride is solid and comfortable. the road noise i do experience is on highways and badly paved roads but you can't fault the car for this ,in my case its the tires(bridgestone turanzas) but this is the OEM tire for many cars such as the honda civic and toyota matrix.The engine is very refined and the Mazda 3 is the best handling car in its class.I test drove the civic,corolla and sentra and this car is way ahead in my opinion the best car.It really preforms on the highway,plenty of power and good fuel economy.The Corolla i test drove had door panel rattles and had a steering problem on the highway(tend to pull to the right).I guess you will have to test drive the car yourself to see if the mazda3 is the car for you.Good luck in your search for a new car
Thanks for the info! I have an 05 Corolla S and the road noise is a bit obnoxious but I do just turn the stereo up! Im headed out for some test drives today, near a freeway, so I'll report back!
