Re: Occasional 'Clank' on pulling away!

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a can of de-icing spray that had rolled under the front seat. I guess you have checked for anything under the seats or in the boot?

Re: Adrian Flux Insurance Services – up to 15% discount for CX-3 forum members.'.........

My CX-3 is insured with Mazda. Their premiums are competitive, and in the event of an accident the repairs will be carried out by Mazda approved repairers using genuine Mazda parts.

There is no advantage in using high octane petrol with the Skyactiv-G engine. Performance and efficiency will remain the same. However when the new Skyactiv-X becomes available the choice of fuel will affect the engine output. So buy the the 95 now and save the money for the new Skyactiv-X.

Re: CX-3 .Newbie.

I had Toyo on mine, but had a puncture and replaced both front tyres with Falken. The Falken are A rated for grip in the wet, compared with C rated on the Toyo and they generate about one third of the noise of the Toyo. Very happy with the choice. You beat me to it :) I've got Toyo tyres fitted to ...

Re: missing wheel wrench

Only problem in this scenario is - No mobile coverage!... Or not owning a mobile phone at all! I remember the days before mobile phones, we used to have to walk to the nearest house and ask for help! Only ever happened once to me and they were very nice and very helpful. Alternatively you can use t...

It's always possible of course, that systems on my previous, non Mazda, vehicles have automatically "set" to re-circulating mode when I have stabbed the Air Con button!!!
