    Hi guys. So today I found out that the OEM compact sat nav in my 2010Mazda 3 sport has failed and the part is £1800 to supply from Mazda.

    Mazda has just diagnosed a noise we've been hearing while manoeuvring at low speeds as a short in the power steering pump. They're quoting $1600 for parts and labour as the car is outside warranty - $900 for the replacement pump and $700 for the installation. As the car is five years old that...

    2015 3sGT HB, less than 2K miles... had our first passenger in the back seat and third time in the car the seat belt would not latch. Of all the complex things that could fail, it's hard to believe something that should be so robust would be problematic. Question: can these things get out of...

    So I'm wondering if I got the lemon. So far, two injectors, pcm, bent wheel, bubbled tire, and now a MAF have put my car officially in the service bin over 30 days in less than a year of ownership. I'm seriously contemplating asking the dealer/mazda for a free detailing at this point...
