Re: How is TPMS affected by new tyres and valves?

That's interesting Steve. My car was registered in January 2019 and I'm sure it has standard valves. I will check again in the morning, do the special valves look any different? I only have a copy of a July 2018 Owner's Manual so that's why I picked that date in my original post. I thought special ...

Re: passenger seat belt rattle

Mine rattles when the belt sometimes hasn't retracted fully when the passenger releases it. Reaching across to pull it up before setting off stops the buckle catching against the seat adjustment lever. Or ask the passenger to do it :)

Re: How is TPMS affected by new tyres and valves?

I don't understand the technicalities of TPMS , but I do know that some systems rely on special valves. Most tyre suppliers automatically fit standard valves with new tyres, so do I need to specify a particular type of valve when ordering my tyres? If so, which one? I realise of course that the TPM...

I was unaware the 120 was a detuned 150!... So that's how they can get a 50% gain.
The 2.0 Skyactiv-G MX-5 has 184PS so it would be interesting to know what the difference is that gets another 64PS in that engine!!!

Re: Smart City Braking System

According to the Oct 2016 brochure, the SCBS system was standard on the SE-L Nav and Sport Nav models. By the time of the Sep 2018 brochure, the SCBS system had become part of the optional Safety Pack only available on the Sport Nav model so somewhere between those dates it changed. If your model ha...

Re: Hello, Everybody!

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your excellent choice of new car. You've still got time between now and the 4th September to download the user manual from the Mazda site and read it from cover to cover :) That and rip plenty of your old CDs to a USB stick

Re: Aircon failures

There were 3 different problems with the air con system in the cars produced up to various dates finishing 1st Nov 2016. They were evaporator leakage, condenser leakage and control unit logic problems. These shouldn't affect a car first registered in April 2017. As the car is still under the initial...

Re: It's here!!!

Congratulations on collecting your CX-3 this afternoon. Hope you rack up many miles of carefree motoring. According to the last brochure I downloaded back in Sep 2018, neither the SE Nav+ or SE-L Nav+ came with the digital speedometer - it was still only on the Sport Nav+ (and presumably other Sport...
