problem #3

MAZDA3 GS Hatchback 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,010 miles


We purchased 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback and the car is currently under warranty. In the month of Aug 2016 car suddenly stopped on the highway due to engine malfunction. This incidence has put our family`s life in danger. We towed in the car to dealership and they diagnosed it as faulty engine and they replaced the engine of the car.

After replacing the engines same engine malfunction light came up again in Dec 2016.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles

Today I was driving in some stop and go on 95, when the traffic let up I tried to accelerate up to highway speeds and my Mazda would not accelerate over 38 mph and began vibrating. Thinking it may be flat tire I pulled off the highway, The car continued to vibrate even at a stop. I turned the vehicle off and waited a few minutes and turned the car back on, it immediately began vibrating, no warning lights appeared on the dash.

I will let you know what the status is once the dealership takes a look at it.

problem #1

Sep 272014


  • Automatic transmission
  • 932 miles

My car engine was making a clicking sound after approx ten minutes of running.

Upon pressing the Mazda dealership for a full investigation they found my engine was not performing as it should be.

This resulted in a diagnosis of a defective engine and my whole engine was replaced after only two weeks of ownership.
