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.

Any time I proceed to make a turn, my wheel stiffens. Every light in my dashboard lights up. My radio cuts off and car stalls. This is very dangerous. There is a recall for this exact problem with this exact model of car but my VIN is not covered.

I have been having issues with this vehicle ever since I purchased it from a dealership in woodbridge, va. The car's gears does not shift correctly and the engine continuously stalls. If I'm at a traffic light and the light switches from red to green the vehicle jumps as if it's going to cut off. My at light also came on and my check engine light comes on and off. Every time the vehicle's engine light is checked, it's because of "the thermostat" which I've seen many complaints from owners of the same type of vehicle. Although, the engine code is coming up as an issue with the thermostat, there's actually never an issue. I searched my VIN and its stating there are no open recalls for my vehicle, but I'm having the same issues as the open recalls for this particular make and model for 2007. I bought the vehicle October 2013 so there's no way Mazda could've sent me information pertaining to the recall and the dealership did not inform me of this either.

There is an issue with the rear brake light assembly, the red plastic assembly melted into the break light bulbs causing both rear brake lights to burn out. Currently, both assembly have holes where the red plastic melted, this is a potential fire hazard. There is an issue with the front passenger side engine mount, it has been replaced three times and continues to fail, might an engineering defect on the engine mount. Finally, dashboard airbag indicator has turned on unexpectedly and has remained on ever since, might be defective part in the SRS airbag system.

The brake light housing (amber lens) was heated by the bulb to such a degree that the lens itself melted onto the bulb. We are not entirely sure when this happened and may have been ongoing for quite some time. Upon inspection by an experienced automotive technician, it was confirmed that the bulbs were the correct model and had been installed correctly. Some of the plastic had melted down onto the bulb itself and could potentially become a fire hazard. This problem impacted both driver and passenger sides, with the driver side appearing more significantly melted. After a quick search on Mazda forums, this appears to be an issue experienced by many owners of 2007 Mazda 3 models, but only those in the hatchback configuration.

I have constantly replaced my driver window motor. The driver window switch/motor stops working for no reason. In addition the entire headunit stops working. It shuts on and off while in the middle of driving. Sometimes to powers right back on and other times it can take days for it to turn back on.

Power window control issue on driver's side only - the driver's power window button will work for awhile and then intermittently stop working for a day or so. It will randomly start working again. Not sure if it happens more when it rains. I did see that GM just put a recall describing the exact same thing I'm experiencing and was wondering if it might be the same issue...they describe it as moisture entering the driver's window resulting in the power control not working intermittently. It first started happening in my car about back in may, but it might have been even longer.

In March 2008, my vehicle had warning lights turn on for both the seat belt and ABS system. The dealer cleared the code and checked the system for errors. No codes re-occurred and the car was returned to me. Subsequently in December 2008, the airbag light came on again. The dealer adjusted some wiring and cleared the light/code. Now in September 2011, the airbag light is on again.
