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.

  • 50,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Mazda 3. the contact stated that the vehicle failed to start when the fuel tank was filled. The dealer performed a diagnostic, which located a failure code at the purge valve. The valve was replaced, but the vehicle experienced additional failures. The front end vibrated and the engine stalled while driving 65 mph. The dealer performed diagnostic testing, which indicated that the engine mount was worn, the struts leaked, and the evap system failed. However, the valves were replaced. The engine mount, struts, and evaporating system were not replaced. The rotor also wore prematurely and could not be resurfaced. The front bumper clips failed due to defective plastic. The clips were replaced several times; however, the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 07V295000 (engine and engine cooling). The failure mileage was 50,000.

The contact owns a 2007 Mazda 3. while the contact was driving approximately 45 mph the steering wheel began to shake. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on two separate occasions for the identical failure. The failure was contributed to warped brake rotors which were resurfaced twice at the dealers expense. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on a third occasion where the technician stated the brake rotors required replacement and could not be resurfaced. The manufacturer was notified and they advised that there was not a recall defect related to the problem and the defect was not under the service warranty. The failure mileage was 10,000. The current mileage was 30,000.
