Re: What has gone wrong with Mazda dealers?

Perhaps I have been fortunate with Eden Mazda Taunton, who have been helpful and efficient with sales and service.

Re: tyres

Mazda didn't put much soundproofing in the early CX-3 models which saved weight (and money). You might consider fitting a kit diy or professionally - e.g. https://www.nkgroup.co.uk/product-category/vehicles/cars/ ? At last the truth comes out! I have complained about the CX-3's noisy ride ever sinc...

Re: Air Con fail and fix

Unfortunately the car also had the mechanical crudity of a transmission which required me to select the gears myself and engage the drive with a friction clutch. "real men drive cars with manual transmissions" ;-) https://www.askmen.com/top_10/cars/top10-reasons-real-men-drive-stick.html Just the s...

Re: Air Con fail and fix

Well there were no problems found during the second annual service yesterday, and the a/c is working hard in the current heatwave. I was lent a 2018 CX-3 demonstrator as a courtesy car, and it had a lot of toys. Leather upholstery, climate control, reversing camera and a tiny display instead of a pr...

Re: Air Con fail and fix

Had our condenser replaced for the second time on Wednesday. It went in the first year we had the car and then again a few weeks ago. I really hope they've sorted it this time. :roll: I hope so too. My condenser was found to be leaking at the first service last year, and was replaced under warranty...

Re: Sat Nav Again

The more I read about Mazda's sat nav, the more relieved I am that I bought a CX-3 SE without it. My trusty Garmin does the job without undue drama, getting me across Plymouth city centre last week, and can even be used in my 1970 Rover 3.5 Litre Coupe should the need ever arise.

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. It might be possible to insure cheaper elsewhere, but I want the best cover, not the cheapest.

For those with a Sports Nav .....TURN UP THE VOLUME on your Bose system and you won't hear the road noise, 😎
Follow that advice and all you will do is mask the problem while risking permanent hearing damage.

Re: Tyre noise and hard ride

Tyre noise and a firm ride are not matters which can or should be laughed off. They are serious problems with the CX-3. My test drive included a motorway, an A road and an urban dual carriageway. Having read all the reviews I was prepared for a firm ride. On the road surfaces of the test drive the c...
