Hey guys,
Just a short intro here. Recently purchased a mazda hybrid and found this forum while looking for info.
Nice i am looking to buy same mazda 3 hybrid 2014 model. I just wanted to ask you if it is a reliable car and did you have to spend too much for maintainance and how is the mileage? Company says it goes 100 kms on 3.2 litres?

Could you pls advice because i am looking to get same car.

I brought a 2013 axela hybrid, right now I am struggling on translating the Japanese manual to English. Also Im trying to update the infotainment firmware and install android auto.
There aren't much of detailed specification of this model, does anyone know how good the CVT on this model? reliability or any well-known issues??

I will just answer my own questions, I have been digging information from Japanese websites. Apparently, Axela hybrid uses the 3rd gen Prius hybrids system, (THS II), so the cvt is an ecvt, 2 electrical motor and planetary gear system from speed change, this system proven to be very reliable. The average battery replacement is around 200k to 250k miles, in many cases the battery last over 300k 400k miles, the earlier failure rate is 1%. The only difference is this system connect to the mazda skyactiv engine.
