Re: Mazda 3... are they just for kids??

I think your question about the age group for 3 owners has been answered by a poll buried a thousand pages back (I can't find it! lol) but I think the general consensus was that though the largest age group was comprised of ppl in their early to late 20s, this result is appreciably skewed by the fact that this same age group tends to be more "internet savvy", and therefore more likely to be on this forum.

That being said, I don't think the car is "just for kids". It's a classy looking car that's reliable and safe, and really, who wouldn't that appeal to? It's got that look that befits an individual of any age, like a 3 series BMW [that it suspiciously looks very similar to]. Hell my dad who's in his 50s loves the styling, and he's said of just about every new car since the '90s that "it looks like a toy car".

Re: Mazda 3... are they just for kids??

I have to agree with XO2... This forum is loaded with kids from 16 to 18, and some are still riding their bikes.. As far as the mazda3 being a kids car, well that just isn't so. I got rid of a 2000 BMW 3 Series and bought a '04 3s sedan. I sold the BMW for 20k and bought the Mazda cash... BTW, I just turned 60 last month..

Re: Mazda 3... are they just for kids??

you'll be surprised what the age range of people on this forum are--i know people in their teens, 20's, 30's etc etc even a few in their 60's

so no, the 3 isn't just for the kids--
