OK-just how long DO Mazda key fob batteries actually last?..
Usually around 12 months.
I think it depends on how much you use it. Mine isn't an everyday car as I have the MX5, so I change mine every two years which hasn't caused me a problem as yet.

Re: Question on extended warranty ?

I haven't extended mine because i have now moved to an area which is 50 mins away from a main dealership, my mileage is very small and there are plenty of independent garages reasonably near to hand. HOWEVER- I have £upgraded my standard Breakdown Cover just in case I can't "start" in the...

Re: Question on extended warranty ?

My warranty on my CX-3 runs out next January. and I do not intend to extend it. I really don't know whether you will be able to take out and extended warranty after the end of year four. But why would you unless you thought there was a problem. Apart from the early models suffering from cheap Chines...

Re: beeps on startup 1 long, 4 short

I think MJC is correct. I had a guy roll into the back of me. My wife didn't even notice it but it damaged the sensor. From what I recall it gave one long beep and 4 short ones. I was lucky, because there was no damage to the car the sensor was replaced under warranty. :roll:

Re: Extra Key?

I think it's a key to safe deposit box which is packed full of diamonds worth millions of pounds. All you have to do is find the bank and the box number! :D

Re: Driving experience and quality - any advice

Just to clarify my last post because I was in a bit of a hurry. The early CX-3 was also a harsh ride, but in late 2018 they redesigned the suspension which was a major improvement to the ride. Mazda also introduced additional sound proofing which reduced a lot of road noise that heard in the earlier...
