Mazda 3 2015 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mazda 3 2015 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Mazda 3 2015: Transmission replacement
We have heard reports of problems with shift solenoids in the auto. It's not a big problem and I wouldn't be worried about the general reliability of the car once it's been fixed.
Mazda 3: Is the safety pack worth it?
You should always go to the max on safety and auto emergency braking is a big breakthrough that's worth the extra on its own. Sell the Corolla privately to make better than $250.
What's a good small car for $20,000?
Of those you have been looking at I would rule out the Cruze on the basis of its transmission troubles. The Focus and the Hyundai are good cars and would do what you want nicely. Others to consider would be the Mazda3 and the Kia Rio.
Mazda 3: Sat-nav won't work
I don't have any argument with preventing the driver from using the system while the car is in motion, but also preventing the passenger from using it does seem over the top. Talk to your dealer about how you might have the system changed.
Note that touchscreen inputs in the Mazda 3 are bypassed once the car sets off. This is a safety feature.
Which hatch for retirement?
The Golf is great but questionable beyond the warranty, which rules it out for you. The A3 is a Golf under the skin, so that makes the Mazda3 the safe choice but you should also crunch the numbers on an A-Class and test drive to see if it makes you feel more special than the Mazda for your retirement.
Which is better: Mazda 3 or CX-3?
The most important thing to remember is that the CX-3 is based on the Mazda2, which means it is considerably smaller than the Mazda3. If it has enough space for your needs then go ahead, as it's best of the new baby SUVs, gets The Tick, and leads the class on value.
What's the best $10,000 second-hand small car?
I would not buy a Golf in the second-hand $10,000 range. The Mazda3 is the best car but he'll probably get better value in a Swift, as it's a size smaller. Buying private will mean better value, but ensure he gets an independent mechanical check.
Mazda 3: What's a good replacement car?
The CX-3 is noticeably smaller than your current car, even thought it gets The Tick. So does the stablemate, which is why I would steer you towards a new Mazda3.
