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.

I have been getting my car regularly maintenanced (and tired rotated and balanced) every six months and I have all the receipts to prove this. Dates as follows: November 14, 2007, March 6, 2008, August 25, 2008, April 9, 2009 and Sept 4, 2009. I was informed that my tires were ┐cuppling┐ and that I need all 4 tires now as well as a 4 wheel alignment. There are toyo tires and I have one 34,000 miles on them. I was hearing rattling sound coming from the console, dashboard and passenger side door while I drive. I was told it was wires lose and they fixed it....but in fact they did not. I have also had problems with the power-train (reflashing) and battery died before the car was even 6 months old. They changed the battery and supposely fixed the power train.

I recently purchased a 2007 Mazda3. The air conditioning vent above the pedals is close enough to where one's foot will get caught on it when trying to move one's foot between the brake and gas pedals. This creates a potentially hazardous situation where the driver may be unable to apply the brakes because his foot is caught on the air vent.
