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.

Driver side curtain airbag deployment while driving aprox 55miles/hr on the freeway. No collision. After inspection, manufacturer said it was insurance issue not theirs. Conducted my own investigation and hired specialists, results were that edr (event data recovery system) downloaded codes for short circuit to the driver side curtain. Case is in court. Car has less then 25000 miles on it.
