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.

The contact owns a 2007 Mazda 3. while driving 40 mph, the xenon headlights provided poor visibility. The 12 volt,35 watt lights do not reflect the eyes of animals and, as a result, the contact was unable to see a deer running across two lanes before it struck her vehicle. The vehicle sustained $800 worth of damage. The low beams were illuminated at the time of the crash. The current mileage was 13,000 and failure mileage was 11,000. Updated 12/12/2007 the consumer stated took the vehicle to dealer and dealer adjusted lights but still poor visibility. The consumer provided an estimate for repairs. Updated 12/12/07
