Piece of junk!!!
High fuel costs.
Car looks like a pond whenever it rains (yes seals have been replaced).
Mass air flow sensor replaced twice.
Water pump replaced twice.
Ball joints gone after 30000ks.
Transmission is loud and clunky.
Revs are all over the place whether driving or idle.
I am not and erratic driver or a lead foot. Just a mum with 4 kids to get from A to B.
My list goes on and on.
Do not waste your hard earned cash on this.
And we had owned it from new.
Mazda- Never Again
Got our 2005 MPV brand new from the dealership. Over the past 9 years is has been nothing but trouble. A few months after getting the car, the immobiliser didn't recognise the key, resulting in towing to the dealerships service centre. A few years later, there was electrical malfunctions, the HOLD light was flashing so Mazda replaced the gearbox. No difference. Replaced gearbox again as the light didn't go away. Turns out the radiator had split and coolant leaked on to the battery terminals. The right side sliding door is unusable as it jams. T...he central locking system is an abhorrent failure, doors won't lock/unlock. Lights behind gear position indicator/odometer burnt out while the car was new, one of the tail lights was smashed on the side when we picked up the car. Our air conditioning doesn't work, makes a loud fan screeching noise. Water pump had been changed numerous times as have the ignition coils, for an unknown reason the car shudders and misfires. Loud grinding noise when coming to a stop. If I could help one person- DONT BUY ONE!!!!! Fuel economy Wear and tear. Lack of attention to detail.
Questions & Answers
I was just wondering if it is expensive to replace parts
Depends on the parts. All genuine Mazda parts will be expensive but if you shop around and get second hand parts or parts from Supercheap, they would be reasonable. Labour charge is always the biggest cost if you decide to get parts replaced by a Mazda dealer.
The above reply from charles jamed is spot my mechanic always tries to use genetic parts as in most cases they are no different
