Re: What updates for the New 2019 CX3 would you like.

The infotainment screen is so ugly; it realy should fold/slide out of the way when not in use or required. I see it has received good reviews with much talk about the interior, but alas the big ugly screen remains a permanent fixture https://inews.co.uk/essentials/lifestyle/cars/car-reviews/mazda-c...

Re: Traffic sign recognition (TSR)

Just to prove the point, seemingly, I drove through a village with clearly marked, large variety, speed limit signs this morning, but presumably there were no speed limit details on the mapping. There was no speed limit display, at all, just blank, on the HUD. It didn't pick up the national speed l...

I won’t tell you what else it can do, you’ll have palpitations :D :lol:

Re: Automatic speed adjustment according to traffic signs shown in the Sat Nav and HUD

Oh dear Gus, that is really scary. Only two days ago I had to accelerate hard as a driver started to pull out when I was alongside him. If this system was operational he would have hit the back of my car. And only a couple of weeks back I had to do the same when a deer ran at me from the side. Like ...

Re: Automatic speed adjustment according to traffic signs shown in the Sat Nav and HUD

Hi Batcave and welcome to the forums.
No this technology isn't available as yet. I guess it will be something that could be linked to the cruise control in the future. Who knows, maybe one day it will be compulsory!

Re: blue coolant light

No you don't have to wait. The light will stay on until the engine is warm enough to to show it is up to its optimum efficiency. When the engine is cold it will automatically increase the petrol to air mix until it warms up and then produce a more efficient mix. It doesn't stop you driving it. It ju...

Re: blue temperature light

It's bizarre that the temperature light wasn't blue on a cold day when my new Mazda CX-3 had been sitting outside overnight. Yet after a night in the underground with warmer temperatures the blue light came on. Glad to have found this forum as I just picked up my car a few days ago and did not expe...

Re: Washing/cleaning a CX3 is easy!

I actually enjoy driving my car, so I take it to a car wash if it gets dirty and then clean off the bits the car wash misses. Looks lovely when it's clean and saves a lot of elbow grease.

Re: Time flies - now three years old.

I had a silver Jag that attracted flies like that. It must be something to do with the colour. Or maybe the paint gives off an odour that attracts them.
