2010 Mazda Mazda3 Problems

A Loose rear stabilizer bar link can cause a rattling noise from the rear suspension while driving on rough roads. Our technicians tell us if the rear stabilizer bar and links are not found to be loose, there are updated sway bar bushings available which should correct this problem.

A vibration felt at 55 mph may not be a tire problem. Mazda has revised motor mounts available which may help remedy this problem.

The rear brakes can squeak because the rear brake pad may be contacting the brake rotor. A burr on the backing plate of the brake pad can prevent the pad from seating in the bracket properly causing the contact with the rotor. The backing plate and the pad support hardware can be deburred in the contact areas. Mazda has also released revised brake pads.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 Recalls

The engine wiring harness may be routed too close to the starter, resulting in damage to the harness caused by normal engine vibration. If the harness is damaged, engine control and/or transmission shift malfunctions may occur. In some cases, the main fuse could blow, causing the engine to stall and not restart, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair the harness. In addition, a protector clip will be installed to prevent future damage. This recall is expected to begin by May 6, 2009. The Mazda recall number is 5409D.

Second time Mazda 3 owner. First was 2006, this one 2010. Major heater issue!!! I am unable to control heat, it is super hot on all settings. Mazda will not honor warranty and fix the heat and sadly left car with coolant smell trying to fix. Now I have too hot heat and coolant smell. If only I had known that Mazda's new car warranty is only words on a piece of paper. Corporate Mazda no help, ju...

They said we need to have a mazda rep come and look and then they...

Hi, I purchased the Mazda 2010 over a year ago. Recently, my dog went "crazy" over a sound she heard in the garage for over a day. She was a frantic, distressed and panting, clinging, unhappy little dog. I tried to resolve the problem and found that the sound was related to the trunk being partially open. That was taken care of but the trunk icon is still flashing on the screen, How do I t...
