Won’t go wrong with a Mazda

I purchased the Mazda 3 2014 touring model with all the extras and I’m not disappointed at all. My previous car was a Mazda 3 2006 and had it for 11 years never broke down on me once. I think they are one of the best cars around on the road for the price

Nifty all-rounder

I've had my Mazda 3 for the past 7 years, using it nearly daily. What it lacks in acceleration, it makes up in a smooth, easy ride. Some don't like the centre console but for mine, it's a great feature that makes it easy to flip between functions while keeping my eye on the road. It certainly looks a hell of a lot nicer than rival models too. Show details

Great car but has problems with the automatic transmission due to faulty TCU

Bought a Mazda 3 2010 model. Was running great till 140000ks then the AT warning light came on and the car would stall and shudder. Took it to Mazda dealership twice they could not find the problem. I looked up Mazda forums and found all Mazda3 models from 2006-2013 have a problem with Transmission Control Module failure which cause the car to stall shudder and gear to get stuck. Finally had to pay 1050 to replace the TCU. There should be a recall on these models as it is a serious safety issue. Show details

People who have had problems with their automatic transmission should submit their reviews for Mazda to take corrective action.

Think carefully before buying

* Wheels are over $1300 each to buy new.
* The key shell when dropped may fall apart. If you lose one side, such as an accidental dropping of the key, Mazda parts will sell you the single piece for around $168. (There’s no badge on that side, no electronics. It’s an almost flat piece of plastic worth a couple of dollars at best). As a cheaper option, they will offer you the accessory replacement (in silver, rose gold or fake carbon) for around $80.
*. The mirrors often don’t open (e.g 3 times out of 10) despite the dealer not being able to replicate the fault.

So despite the car being nice to drive, cheap to service, economical and good dealer relations, I would think seriously about buying another one. Show details
