Mazda 3 2013 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 3 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What's a good sedan under $17,000?
I wouldn’t recommend the Cruze, there have been too many problems with them. The Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and Hyundai Elantra are all good, reliable cars with plenty of performance for the class. Any one of them would be a good choice.
Broken 2013 Mazda3 navigation
I agree that Mazda's response is unsatisfactory. It remains Mazda's responsibility to carry out repairs on your car. I can only suggest you persist to the extent the dealer and Mazda know that you won't go away until they give you a satisfactory response.
Tips for a first car-buyer
You've chosen a good brand in Mazda, and good models in the 2 and 3. Both are good cars and give little trouble, so you can't go far wrong with either one. There are other brands as well, but I would recommend that you stick with Japanese brands and not be tempted by European cars, which can be expensive to service and repair. Look for a car in good condition and well presented both inside and out, a car that drives smoothly, and doesn't have any odd noises or vibrations. Don't take any notice of the salesmen trying to sell you a car; they're just trying to relieve you of your money and some will tell you anything to make that happen. If you can't take a trusted friend along to help you assess a car, consider getting the NRMA to check it for you.
