Mazda 3 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 3 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What car should I buy that is reliable and safe?
You’ve got a limited budget, which will determine the car you can buy. It will be a relatively old car, so buy one in the best condition you can find, with the lowest odometer reading, a good service history, and the best safety rating. Try a Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Kia Rio, and Hyundai i30 from 2008/2009.
Best first car options?
Do not buy a Cruze, or buy a European brand. They will prove costly. It's best to go for the cars that are well proven over many years. The Lancer is a good one, but so too is the Toyota Yaris or Corolla, Suzuki Swift, Mazda2 or 3, or Mitsubishi Colt.
Mazda 3 2009: ABS light always on
There's no option but to fix whatever is wrong with the ABS system, without doing that the system won't be working and your braking is affected. Without knowing what is wrong with it it's hard to comment on the quoted cost of repairs. To save some money you could go to an independent mechanic, or a brake specialist.
2009 Mazda 3 struggling aircon
It's definitely not normal, based on the dozens of Mazdas I have driven. Get along to an aircon expert for a diagnosis as it could be something as simple as needing extra coolant gas.
Mazda 3 2009 Towing capacity
The Mazda 3 has maximum towing capacity of 900kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.
