Mazda 323 2003 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 323 2003 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mazda 323 brake pad/rotor issues

    Most mechanics would skim the rotors when changing pads, and at 52,000 km I would expect that's all you would need to do. On heavier cars I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the rotors were worn, but on a light car like that I would expect longer life. While I can only speculate on your case, I can say that some dealers simply prefer to replace parts rather than repair, or in your case, machine them. They can make more money out of supplying and fitting the new parts than be doing what an old time mechanic might do.

  • Trade or sell

    There are only two ways -- privately or by trading the car in with a dealer. You will get more for it by selling it, up to $19,000, but you will have to advertise it and sit by the phone at weekends. You may wait quite a while for a buyer. I would recommend you trade it in on the car you want. You will get about $16,000, but it's the easiest and quickest way to go.
