Where is the Mazda 3 Made ?

I heard JAPAN is that true ?

If so that increases my chances of getting the car by a LOT.

I wonder where the other 10-20 % of the remaining parts come from?

Mexico?

Why does the sedan seem to have 90% Japan parts, and the hatch have 80%. What's the big difference?

I was thinking they were taking parts from the bottom of the ocean...

Possibly the Titanic.

Well on the Mazda6, maybe they did take the door frames from the bottom of the ocean since they have had the rust ( uhh staining) problem. Cheap shot, sorry all MZ6 owners Great car otherwise.

Actually, I think it says 0% North America, so that cancel's out Mexico... though not Brazil and SA
