Notes: Except for a minor issue with cracked motor mounts, the 2007 MAZDA3 is a fantastic vehicle with a great reputation.

If you need to replace the motor mounts, first ask your dealer if they'll cover it -- the motor mounts were dealt with in a TSB & were recalled for some model years. Otherwise buy aftermarket motor mounts -- owners report this solves the problem. If you use the same OEM parts, they may just crack again.

MAZDA3 4-cyl

I was rear ended by a city transit bus going approx. 30mph. At the point of impact my seat dislodged from it's position and flew back to the furthest position, then locking in place. I was unable to hit the brakes - therefore, pushing me into another vehicle of which I rear ended. My brand new car was considered a total loss. I did severe damage to the car I rear ended. The airbags also failed to deploy.

I have sustained a painful ergonomic injury to my right achilles tendon from the poor design of the accelerator/brake area and the limited seat adjustment in this car (2007 Mazda speed 3). I have to ice my ankle every night. When driving it is painful and can become numb, reducing my ability to do emergency braking. I am concerned that this will lead to an accident. The issue started in early January with less than 100 miles on the car - now I have 1300 on the car and experience this every day I drive the vehicle.
