2013 Mazda3 Grand Touring Review part 3


Even a two year old knows that the 2013 Mazda3 is a FUN car!! I know... I'm shameless and I will use any excuse to put a picture of Alice on the blog.  I can't help it!!  Look at that face!! (Don't worry Josh she drove very carefully and only once around the block!)




Trunk space in the 2013 Mazda3 Grand Touring. This is a mom/grandma's dream trunk with plenty of space!! Not only large enough for a stroller and all your groceries, but enough room to stick a Grandki never mind. Anyway, plenty of trunk space!! Spare tire under the mat along with all the tools.




Rear view mirror has 3 home links. LOVE that feature!
Compass in the mirror as well.


One of my favorite features! The blindspot indicator. Not only does it light up on the correct side mirror there is also a beep.
With the Mazda3 you can also set the volume for your turn signal indicator! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?



Plenty of room for carseat and a passenger in the backseat.
Another feature I am IN LOVE with is the door and trunk keyless entry. As long as you have the key fob on you (or in your purse) just push that little button and voila..... you're in!!
Zachary was a little worried about my safety with the keyless entry so I opened the front driver side and Zac tried the passenger side and was not able to open the car.  (Such a great son!! and a smart car!!)

Okay, seriously last one of Alice in the car. I promise... at least for the 2013 Mazda3

Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda3 Grand Touring for the purpose of my review. (They aren't letting me keep this one either I checked) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way

  3. Looks like the baby girl is ready for her car keys. She is really getting into this.

    Not only do you get to review cars, but you have your very own car model to point out the features you are talking about. DH

  4. Adorable! So easy a baby could drive it? I really like all that trunk space, I wouldn't have thought it was that roomy.

  6. Boy, I need the Blond Spot Indicator. I hate cars with limited visibility, and the feature helps so much. Love the pics of your Alice :)

  7. I love the The blind spot indicator! My daughter is just learning how to drive and she could really use this feature. I have never seen a car with this. What a beautiful car. Thanks for the review!

  17. There are a lot of nice features on this car. I like the fact that you can not open the passenger door when you have opened the car with the keyless entry. The most handy I think is the blind spot indicator. Nice car

  18. I currently drive a Mitsubishi but a Mazda has always been on my radar. I really like all the features this car offers. And the price is great. When I finally decide or am able to geta new car I am definately going to test dribe a Mazda!

  19. Alice looks like such a cutie! I think maybe she could use a booster seat though, since it does not look like she's able to view where she's going! lol
    Oh, the car looks nice too and I've heard many great things about Mazda. Thanks for your review and sharing your photo's :)

  21. I am looking for a newer used vehicle. This Mazda sounds good and I plan to research it more. Looking for a 2005 to 2008 model.

  22. What a sweet little car! I love the extra touches...being able to pop the trunk from your key fob would be such a plus when your hands are full...or it's raining and you are trying to load groceries as fast as possible!

  23. Looks like Alice was loving the Mazda 3 as well!
