Re: And So It Begins ...

My car was registered in July 2016, and the leak from the condenser was discovered during the first annual service. As the a/c was working I had no idea that anything was wrong until the service manager told me. When the replacement condenser was fitted they assured me that it was an improved versio...

Re: And So It Begins ...

The condenser on mine was found to be leaking at the first service and was replaced under warranty. The part took six weeks to arrive, but meanwhile the a/c continued to work although not 100% efficiently. When the warranty expires next year I will not extend it unless it specifically includes the a...

Re: Mazda recalls 2.2 million cars over tailgate issue

Do we know the VIN number range of the CX-3's affected?
Mine was registered new in July 2016, so do I need to mention it when booking the second annual service?

Re: Air Con fail and fix

Eden Mazda Taunton is on an out of town business park about 15 miles from my home, which is not well served by public transport and my wife does not drive. They have never had a courtesy car available, either for servicing or for the a/c condenser replacement. Although my CX-3 is an automatic, I wou...

Re: Next car

If I was changing cars in the near future I would look seriously at one of the new Citroens with their advanced comfort suspension and seating, possibly a C4 Cactus or a C3 Aircross, but as my annual mileage is low it would be a waste of money to change for several years. For a fraction of the cost ...

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

For me the electronic parking brake is a deal breaker. I will not buy a car with one, so my CX-3 will be my last.

Re: CX-3 horn improvement

The horn is so pathetic as to sound apologetic. I have heard louder horns on my grandchildren's bicycles.
A couple of Lucas Wind Tones as fitted to my 1970 Rover would be impressive, but I doubt that there is room under the bonnet.
