Re: Expensive!

I want the best cover, not the cheapest.
My CX-3 is insured with LV through Mazda, so that in the event of a claim I only have to deal with Mazda.
For my classic car insurance I use a specialist broker.

Re: The end of the CX3?

When a model goes out of production, it's secondhand value usually decreases. I see no reason why the CX-3 should be an exception.

Re: New car from outside my dealers own stock. Questions to ask.

To get the colour and specification I wanted, Eden Mazda Taunton had to source mine from elsewhere, but it must have been delivered to them by transporter as their pre-delivery check showed only five miles recorded.

Re: How good is the auto 'box?

Although I have been a persistent critic of the CX-3's noisy unforgiving ride, allegedly improved with the 2019 face lifted version, the automatic gearbox is the best I have ever experienced. I am an avid follower of the motoring journalist "Honest John", and according to his website there has not b...

Re: Low washer fluid warning light

Have we reached a time when owners no longer carry out even the most basic under bonnet checks?

Re: Turn off i-Stop Permanently?

I am old enough to remember "Clunk click, every trip". Turning i-Stop off has become as natural as putting on my seat belt.

Re: Tyre Rotation.

Unable to stand the noise and vibration from the original Bridgestone Turanzas any longer, even though they still had 4/5mm of tread remaining at 15,000 miles, I have replaced them with Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2's. They were not cheap. I could have recouped a few pounds by selling the Bridgesto...

Re: 2nd Service

The service plan covers lubricants, brake fluid, oil air and cabin filters. Mot's and fair wear & tear items are not included. As the car is dealer serviced and then MoT'd on the same day, I would not expect any unforeseen expenses. At my age (72) peace of mind is more important than shopping around...

Re: Rear ended today!!! GRRRR!!!!!

I have had two accidents in 53 years driving, and each time I was rear ended whilst stationary, so I feel your pain.
At least if it ever happens to my CX-3 there will be no problems between Mazda and my insurers, as Mazda are my insurers.
