Mazda 3 2008 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 3 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mazda 3 2008: Clogged DPF

    I don't think you have a claim against Mazda at all; they rejected your claims because you hadn't followed the recommended servicing schedule and the DPF wasn't reset. They have every right to reject your claim when the filter became clogged. The sales people were not to know you would be doing some of the servicing yourself when they sold you the car, the service people had no knowledge of what you were doing, the parts people who sold you the oils and filters didn't know and couldn't be expected to know, so I don't believe you could blame anyone else for having a problem.

  • Mazda 3 2008: LPG surging

    Our LPG industry specialist says there is no reason that the normal Mazda scheduled maintenance of your car can't be carried out by a regular dealership mechanic. The only time an accredited LPG technician is required is when the high-pressure side of the gas system is to be opened for some reason. The dealer's behaviour is strange given that they are normally quite happy to sublet the LPG work to an accredited LPG business. Your vehicle would have been fitted with an AAFRB compliance plate when the system was installed, and the very presence of that plate is confirmation that the system on your car has been approved. If you are concerned about its approval check for the plate or you could contact the AAFRB at http://  www.aafrb.com.au to seek advice.

  • Mazda 3 2008: Grinding gearbox noises

    It's obviously concerning you, so you should get it resolved. I would suspect that the dealer has driven around the block and when it hasn't happened he's declared it checked out. Dealers today aren't really equipped to investigate problems and resolve them, if it doesn't show up on their diagnostic equipment or happen all the time they're stumped. You could try an independent mechanic who specializes in Mazdas, or if you prefer to stick with your dealer sit down with him and find out what action they already taken to find the problem and then map out a plan of attack to fix it going forward.
