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.

Mazda speed3 2007 has been having problems, with engine mounting failure it seems the engine mount is not bolted correctly or the bolt itself to the engine is defective, I believe Mazda is aware of this three incidents, but has not issue any recalls or recommendations, I provide a forum link mazda3forums as some picture provided by actual consumers who had this happened to their cars. Please helps us.
