My new 2010 Mazda 3 hatchback was showing signs of unusual high/irregular tire wear. The tires were rotated as per the company recommended schedule. It was found that the rear trailing arms and lower shock bolts were loose. At 22,000 miles the front tires that had been rotated to the rear were also wearing uneven and at a high rate considering this was only more than a 5,000 mile period. The vehicle was taken to Mazda on janurary 17,2012 informing them that I had checked online and this excessive tire wear has been known by Mazda for over (5) years. The service manager confirmed this issue and Mazda has done nothing to repair/recall the vehicle. The service manager also stated that almost all of the Mazda 3 model have the same problem. Looking through other Mazda owners who have had tires wear out at or around the 25,000 mile range that there is a fix for the problem. I.e. an adjustable camber rod which one owner had done and the car went.....60,000 miles on a set of tires. Mazda knows of this problem, has not done anything except produce more vehicles with this problem and there is a damned fix for also is amazing and damning that this adjustable rod is manufactured by...........M a Z D a....I would demand an announcement and recall of these vehicles as the inside of the tire wears at an extremely high rate and for those that do not check the tire condition of their car nor to rotate the tires, this will lead to a tire failure/blowout which will create a high accident risk. Mazda knows the problem and has done nothing, make it public, demand a recall and ensure compliance to this potential serious problem is resolved.

The contact owns a 2010 Mazda, Mazda3. While driving at various speeds, the contact heard a humming noise and the vehicle began to vibrate excessively. The vehicle was taken to two different auto mechanics and they both recommended that the tires not be rotated because of poor tread. Prior to the failure, both rear tires were replaced. The technician also informed the contact that the failure was contributed to the suspension which caused the tires to prematurely wear. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem. The failure mileage was 10,000.
