I'm probably going to do that. I contacted a reputable lemon law attorney in my area on how to best proceed. Yesterday, my gas gauge stopped working correctly. It went drastically low for no reason and has now stayed at "full tank" after driving over 50 miles.Try a different dealership,
I previously wrote a thread about my car starting hard. It started after I began working from home due to the pandemic, but has continued. I initially thought it was due to driving less or bad gas.
Dealer Trip #1: Mazda dealer updated modules (?) that were drawing too much power. (3 weeks ago). Problem continued.
Dealer Trip #2: Mazda dealer tested the battery, said it was failing. They replaced it under the warranty. (last week) Problem continued the day after.
After sitting overnight, my car starts hard in the morning still. It hesitates and then finally turns over- I don't see any flickering lights on the dashboard or headlight dimming. I just returned from a 500 miles trip to PA, no issues while driving, only starting the car each day.
Before I head to the dealer again, any general idea on the cause of this?
I had the same issue. My car sat for days without being driven and I had to jump start it. I took it to 2 places for diagnostic and they sid it was low voltage. Took it to Mazda and they kept the car for almost a week (gave me a loaner) fully charged the battery and ran several tests and it passed. Haven't had a problem since
Wait and see if your problem is solved- the O rings could be a shot in the dark.Dealer Update:
Apparently my car had leaking O-rings, which caused my issues. They replaced them and my car should be ready for pick up tomorrow, after they test everything again.
Is this a common issue with Mazda 3s?
