2011 Mazda Mazda3 Problems

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.

This was my second Mazda3 and I love them. Very fun little car that is actually pretty fuel efficient. I never had any problems with it, granted it only had 20k on it before someone ran into me and totaled it. But there was not a single thing I could complain about that car. I highly recommend Mazda's because They're quick, fuel efficient, fun, reliable, good looking, and VERY safe. Mazda has...
