Hello all,

I have lurked here for a few weeks now before and since getting my lovely 2018 Mazda 3. I fell in love with her straight away. They way it handles and the way it looks, the comfort, its perfect for me. Its a 1.5 Diesel though and I havent seen many of them on here.

Now the mystery issue....
I was driving with on the motorway, about 60km into the journey and then a thud, and it just revved but made no wheel power. Pulling over I found it would go into gear fine, clutch would engage, it could pull itself along. However, when I would go to acellerate it was as if it was in neutral or the clutch was slipping and it would go nowhere, except sometimes it would for a few seconds.

It was under warrenty as I have had it litreally one week, bought from a dealer so I brought it back for them to look at. They say its a flywheel issue and it will be a week at least till the part arrives.... Something about thats not sitting right with me.

If anyone has any ideas please do let me know. I dont have the car to go looking at the parts myself.

Otherwise, glad to be here and hello from Ireland

Turns out the last owner rode the clutch so much the dealer said they had never seen it that bad, resulting in a whole new clutch assembly and fly wheel
