Re: Range on Tankful

Mine overall has done 41.1mpg (UK) which I think converts to 6.87l/km. Best fill-up has been 47.26mpg (5.98 l/km), worst 35.39mpg (7.98 l/km). Well over 75% of my mileage has been on either motorways or duel carriageways and at or near the national limit, road works permitting :evil:

Re: Luggage / tie hooks - are there any?

I did check this evening and found those 2 rear ones are the same type of hoops. Strange they weren't shown on that page in the manual. Will try the front ones out in the next couple of days to see if they will help tie down a folding bike against the back of the seats. Maybe all 4 with enough bunge...

Re: How much to ask?

A new 18" diamond cut alloy wheel from a Mazda dealer costs £154. A new Toyo Proxy R40 215/50 R18 92V tyre from an online retailer can cost £110. Add to that maybe £40 for tyre fitting and the cost of the scissor jack, fixing bolts and the underlay felt would bring the total cost to say £300. So £20...

Re: Luggage / tie hooks - are there any?

Thanks for that jtonline. Searching an electronic version of the Owners Manual doesn't help when person(s) writing the manual refer to them as tie hooks in one section of the manual then in two sections later call them Cargo Securing Loops - blooming "Americanism", we call stuff luggage in the car b...

Luggage / tie hooks - are there any?

I've had a quick look in the boot, and tried checking the Owners Manual, but can't see any obvious sign of these. The only reference to tie hooks - couldn't find one for luggage hooks - in the manual is the sentence "Tie down all heavy objects, whether luggage or cargo, using the tie down hooks" on ...

Re: Fob batteries

My local Mazda Dealer includes a fob battery status check as part of their "free" healthcheck carried out when the annual service is done. However, if a new battery is required they charge around £20!!! I decline and it costs me around 50p for a battery plus less than 3 minutes to carry out a DIY ch...

Re: Sat Nav question plse

............. The Sat Nav can also use the free TMC radio data to route you around road blocks and traffic jams depending on your Traffic settings........ Unless Mazda changed things in recent year(s) - e.g. they paid some kind of subscription - the free to user TMC radio data traffic detour featur...

Re: Yet another newbie!

Unfortunately this - like some others I've tried in recent years - doesn't work for my car's VIN. I just get an answer "This VIN does not appear to be valid". I did find one once that didn't reject the VIN and came back with some basic details telling me it was a 4 door hatchback and not much else!

Re: UPDATING MAPS WITH MAZDA TOOLBOX

Well done. It does seem to take an age and makes you wonder if it is going to fully install. Once your 3 year period is up - since the card was first installed in the car and had done 60 miles or so - then you'll have to pay Mazda for further updates. Personally - at the high price they charge and t...

Re: emergency braking

................... or standing trees." Who in Mazda wrote this I wonder? I'd hate to think how much worse it would be driving on country roads if there were moving trees, especially if they were ignoring speed limits and wandering all over the road. Perhaps they were referring to sleeping trees la...
