Only bad thing I can say, is that you will need winter tires if you live in Canada, as the car is very light, and the stock tires aren't meant for snow or ice. Dealer checked and stated it was normal!! Poor reflection on quality and company responsibility! Mazda only recalls specific vehicles and not all. Clunking noise when I hit bumps. After taking the car back I was told that the tech probably bumped the needle when repairing the gas gauge. Replaced thermostat and engine cooling temperature sensor. The first two the car was immediately undrivable.
If the engine vibration is felt with the shifter in Drive, the is could be bad, although it's not very expensive. The failure mileage was 50,000. The contact noticed that the vehicle had excessively consumed all the oil in the engine. It only has roughly 55K miles on it. However, the valves were replaced.
Dealer was ultimately unable to diagnose the cause for the code. New features include a rear-seat center armrest with built-in cup holders, an audio auxiliary input jack and an additional 12-volt power outlet. The repair is very simple and inexpensive. I am now having to look outside of my means in order to pay for this issue. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired.
The Mazda3 is available in two body styles, with the four-door sedan offering two four-cylinder engine choices: A 2. The steering failure was not repaired. The car's exterior was very straight other than a slightly wonky bumper skin where it attaches to the right fender. Had to order part and will need to bring car back again 16000 km The car continued to have a ruff idle at certain times. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic for diagnosis and the contact was informed that the fuel pump would need to be replaced.
Both models are wildly popular with drivers young and old, poking a big hole in the commonly-held belief that Americans won't buy hatchbacks. Demand for the Mazda3 remains high, so you'll need to be on your toes when negotiating the best price. Please look into this and force Mazda to recall this defect as it is a danger to public safety if one were to break while driving. Provided my memory wasn't suffering from Mandela effect, it seemed the first gen 3 had held up well. Car shows no sign of any issues.
Let the manufacturer know but they did nothing to help. I took it in to get it checked and was informed there was a safety recall for power steering issues on Mazda 3 2007-2009. Once weather gets better, will take car to another dealer. Two features missing from an otherwise well-planned interior are a remote hatch release switch and a retained power feature, the latter necessary to operate the power windows after the key is removed from the ignition. Upper engine mount was replaced. The dealer performed a diagnostic, which located a failure code at the purge valve.
Evap leak detection pump replaced. I was told the problem was fixed but it wasn't. Mechanic told us it was the compressor. It is comfortable, roomy, practical, can use it for just about anything whether it be road trip, snowboarding, hauling wood, furniture, dogs. Though it has only 12 more horsepower than the 2. See if the struts and shock absorbers look dry.
The bracket needs to be bent away from the harness. Greatly reduced highway-speed 50mph+ vibration issues. That is unacceptable, that is a very real concern. Although, the engine code is coming up as an issue with the thermostat, there's actually never an issue. Warranty covered parts and labour. After a couple fruitless excursions and one painfully disappointing test drive of an '06 350Z, I saw a little blue Mazda3 S crouched in the corner of a small car lot. Had the compressor repaired replaced? The five-door hatchback is available only with the larger engine.
Cooling system was flushed problem seems to be ok now. Diagnosed as a problem with the variable-valve adjustment mechanism. Both times it got so bad that I was told by Mazda that it was unsafe to drive the car. Check engine light has not returned. Had part replaced by dealer as a part of this oil and filter change.
It is a comfortable car up front, in the back, not so much. Left front power window switch didn't work. . I saw the power steering light on, as well as a couple of other lights which I do not recall. Timing chain tensioner, guide, crank case gasket replaced.
