Great Car for Commuting
Hubby surprised me with a new car and Mazda went above and beyond to deliver the best experience. My hubby and I had never dealt with these guys but after their incredible service and friendly staff we will purchase all our cars from this Dealership. We personally dealt with Colin from Toowong Dealership and he was an absolute blessing, highly recommend speaking with Colin and the guys as they will exceed all your expectations. Mazda are friendly and polite at all times. We had our car serviced through them over the weekend and they smashed our...expectations. The car was cleaned and vacuumed. They went through all the details of the service and made it truly the most stress free experience. Highly recommend these guys and girls. The car is easy to drive, perfect for all driving (except extreme 4x4). It comes with a vast range of accessories, colours and modifications available. Value for money.
Great interior. Drives great. Looks nice with silver chrome on doors and has sunroof. The driver seat is only thing that isn't the best on my sore back but with pillow it helps.
Buy this vehicle and you will be a “winner”
Having driven Corollas for umpteen dozen years I recently decided to move outside my comfort zone and buy something completely different. I purchased a 2019 CX-3 iTouring in September and absolutely love it. It has more oomph than the Corolla and is magic to drive. If you are in the market for a new vehicle you cannot go wrong getting this vehicle.
Purchased in September 2019.
Bought this CX-3 in May 2019. The fuel consumption is a surprise, that's for sure. Steering is so smooth and the suspension is excellent. The material and style of interior are standard. It is gorgeous on mechanic and the respond is so rapid.
Purchased in June 2019.

Bought this car three years ago. Already the aircon does not work any longer. Worked fine last Summer and before that. I feel a 'clunking' now and again when turning the steering wheel more than 45degrees, like the bearings or the CV joint is giving out. I am an older person - over 50 and it's not like I have been mistreating the car or anything. Very, very disappointed in the car. Oh and really jerky at times when it changes gears.
Purchased in May 2016 for $34,000.00.
Bought the car Brand New on 2015 - drive well, love it - never missed the service always garage, only 20k now. once the warranty finished the headlight condensate. I search in the forum, it is a common problems, some owner are lucky to found it out during the warranty period, replaced and no cost involved. If Mazda aware of this problems they could have recall this matter. I hope someone from Mazda Australia read this and do something about it.
Purchased in August 2015 at Liverpool.
This car grabs you
If you are looking for a small SUV this is well worth a look. It drives and feels very positive on the road. It's very economical for a FWD 2 litre. Nothing is lacking in it's performance, even in the Auto. Packed with Safety features, Auto Headlight and Rain-sensing function. Air conditioning, 6 speaker Audio system, and a host of other features that one would expect in a car of this quality. The only problem we had was choosing the colour.

Love my Mazda CX3
I love my Mazda CX3! This is my first mini SUV. I use the car to work or to the station and over weekends. I have had the car for 3 years, travelled to Canberra, Adelaide and looking forward to a long drive to Sydney soon.
The features and style are highly recommended. The reverse camera and maps is a must and should be fitted in all new vehicles. Cannot do without one! The car is serviced annually at a Mazda dealer
Purchased in June 2016 at Essendon Mazda for $27,500.00.
Cutest car in town
Drive my car daily. Upgraded from a CX7. Love the size, ease of parking and fuel economy. Beautiful leather interior makes this a luxurious car to drive. Great safety features, but no retracting wing mirrors which is a shame.
Purchased in March 2017 at Zoopers for $25,000.00.
Have had a few issues but overall not too bad
Nice looking car, good features however have had a few issues with the safety features which are currently being addressed with mazda. This includes the automatic high beams constantly flashing and not functioning properly.

Good petrol consumption
I had this car for almost 3 years now and not a problem so far.
I would probably choose a 4WD than a FWD as I’ve noticed the power isn’t that great when driving up even on small steep

Car is just over a year old and come back from first service. Only done 11,000 so far. The car is automatic S-Touring version of the car. Love the ride, comfort and overall quality feel of this car. No complaints.
Purchased in April 2018 for $29,960.00.
The cx3 is a great car. Had it for three years and it performs flawlessly. We have the top end model with all the bells and whistles and we love it.
Purchased in November 2015 for $32,000.00.

Perfect for city driving
We have been driving our CX-3 for just over a year after purchasing new from Brookvale Mazda and have been thrilled with the performance and high quality of the car. Boot space is limited but that was highlighted to us during purchase. Official Mazda service includes a detailed video blog of the service which is a brilliant way of keeping across how the car is being taken care of. Thoroughly happy with our purchase
CX3 IS A LEMON
Not going to go into a long winded email , but my Mazda CX 3 is a lemon and l want a replacement or a refund .
Brought the car from Caroline Springs Dealership
Have had five issue since l purchased in 2016 only three years ago
have complained before to head office and you guys did not want to do anything about it, well if nothing comes from this email the next step is VCAT and then A current Affair l am so sick of it.
1. Back seat could not be locked in
2. Back seat seat belt would not retract
3. Airconditioner stopped working
4. Phone would not connect
5. phone will not connect again
Purchased in February 2016.
Love the car but wish the fuel tank wasn't tiny.
I have been driving the petrol Akari AWD for a couple of months now.
I mainly use it for my commute and it's not very often I have passengers so the interior dimensions are perfect. The driving seat is comfortable and easy to adjust. The leather trim is good quality. The car is good to drive and I like the way it looks.
Two things I'm not too happy about:
The fuel tank is miniscule, I think 35 litres. It's obviously something I should've checked but it never occurred to me.
The satellite navigation is rubbish. Even after installing the latest update it doesn't recognise places that have existed for years. It's a shame because the display is in a good position and very clear.
Purchased in December 2018 for $36,000.00.
Great Car, nice finish and high quality build

Great Warranty 5-yrs / Unlimited KMs
Love the pop up display that warns you about speeding and road signs ahead, and blind spot monitoring.
Air-Conditioning fault and appalling service
I have the Mazda CX3 Akari it is a 2015 model I purchased from my daughter who never drove for more than 20 mins at a time in it, now I have been driving it for a year, generally for about 50 mins at a time to work and back, ever since I have had it I knew the air conditioning was not right and I took it to a service centre 3 times to try and have fixed, it was never corrected they said they found a different problem on each occasion.
Now obviously the warranty has run out, the Mazda service centre had absolutely no idea what was wrong with it...
I love my car!
I use my car for daily commutes to and from work and gym and whatever I get up too on a weekend.
The only issue I have is that the backseat leg room is basically non-existent. If I do a school run for family friends, the kids dirty school shoes are touching my front seats. Not ideal. I am a tall gal, so I need space. My adult sized friends don't exactly fit too comfortably if there are more then 2 people in the back. Will need to upgrade when I have kids of my own, or more regular passengers.
Wish I had shopped around a little more, otherwise, a great car. Love the sound system, my first car was a 2005 Holden which had a bad sound system in comparison.
Love my car
I use this car daily as my run about car. I have the sport model, wish I’d upgraded to the top model but I still love this car.
The boot is a little small and can’t fit a great deal in, but fold the seats down and the back space is large.
Drives nicely and handles well
The dealers I bought the car from were extremely helpful and are always great when I get it serviced

Questions & Answers
When my air con is on the passenger side vent is blowing warm air
aircon not give cold air
Hi John. You need to contact your Mazda dealer. It is a known fault in the condenser of the A/C. It is only in some models of the CX3. They will fix the issue free of charge, even if the car is no longer under warranty.
I had mine done a couple of months ago. My car was out of warranty. Did not cost me a cent.
Hi MaryFrancis, Thank you for this. The car is actually my daughter's and I have passed on your advice which she will use as soon as the Mazda dealer is back
Hi maryfrancis3, Appears to be the same problem with my 2016 CX3. I had end of warranty check done in late Sept this year, warranty expired late Nov, and now I have no A/C as of last week.
As my car is now out of warranty there could be an issue getting this known problem fixed at no cost. Would you be able to provide any more details that might help with getting Mazda to fix this issue under warranty, e.g. which dealer, how long out of warranty was your car etc. Can perhaps use your experience as a precedent.
