problem #3

CX-3 GT XA 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Yet again the car did not start after leaving work. Co-worker jump started and I headed straight to Mazda in Lakewood. It was nice that they were expecting me, but after I asked for a loaner they were not so nice. Service rep said cranks were good, but didn't let me take the car...waiting to hear back.

Update from Jul 26, 2017: Vehicle was repurchased by the manufacturer as it met Colorado Lemon Law. Was informed that it would be put up for sale for other dealerships to pick it up for resale. Good luck to the new owner!

First snow storm in Colorado and CX3 would not start in the morning. After about three tries it finally started. Only 12k miles and the temperature wasn't even in the negatives. SMH

did not start after being repaired at dealership

Went in to pick up CX3 after repairs to transmission seal. CX3 would not start. Service at the Broomfield dealership had to jump start it. Rep said it was not the battery that the engine sounded as if it was flooded. Asked that I leave it, but had no loaner car nor offered a rental. Took the car as is to work. I wish they could understand that one works and can't have the luxury to be without a car. I bought a new car so I wouldn't deal with this back and forth.
