You'll be surprised then.
Because in the United States, Mazda hasn't done so hot in the last couple years.
The Mazda3 is like the second best selling car in Canada, right?
In the U.S. it isn't even in the Top 15. I have never understood this though. Mazda's cars just don't seem to be doing all that great in the United States. The 3 is doing pretty good, but the Mazda6 hasn't done very well at all.
Mazda themselves have stated that the Mazda6 was a mistake in this country. I have always felt that the Mazda3 was a better car (build quality wise) than the Mazda6 is.
I don't have July's sales data, but here is what Mazda themselves released for the June sales data.
Mazda3 has sold 51,774 units for MY2005 up until this past June.
Mazda6 has sold 37,771 units for MY2005 up until this past June.
Sales for the same time frame for 2004 where 41,972 (3) and 34,444 (6)
July data hasn't been posted yet on Mazda's website.
Not very high numbers compared to Honda, Toyota, Nissan.

If I am reading the Detroit Free Press article http://www.freep.com/news/statewire/sw119289_20050802.htm
correctly Mazda's cars had a great July (up 26%) and good year (up 5%). Compare that to the poor performance of the Honda car lineup.
You're correct that the overall numbers are dwarfed by the big three Japanese brands (Toyota, Honda, and Nissan) and other players, like Hyundai. Kia sells more cars in the US than Mazda, amazing!
July 2005 for Mazda
Car: 19,081 vs. 15,728, up 26 percent
Truck: 5,739 vs. 7,759, down 23 percent
TOTAL: 24,820 vs. 23,487, up 10 percent
Car: 120,447 vs. 116,398, up 5 percent
Truck: 39,361 vs. 47,625, down 16 percent
TOTAL: 159,808 vs. 164,023, down 1 percent

The latest numbers are basically the same for the total vehicle count;
however, the Mazda3 outsold the Honda Civic/SI for the month of July
(this is not the first month this has happened).

The new Civic is coming out soon... we'll see how it stacks up against the Mazda 3. I think it'll do pretty well. I mean the current Civic is near the end of its generation and is still selling well.
"Honda still leads year-to-date light passenger car sales, with 29,367 Civic sedan and coupes sold; it's followed by the Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Echo, Pontiac Sunfire, Ford Focus, Honda Accord, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Camry, and Chrysler Sebring sedan."
This forum is not about Civic or Mazda 3... so lets get back on topic.
