    Hello, I recently purchased a 2014 Mazda myself and am having the same issue I described. I fear that I'm basically screwed at this point based on everything I've been reading. I was just wondering if you ever saw any resolution to this or if you just had to give in.

    Thanks!

    While you are there , ask to test drive an identically equipped car , for comparison just so YOU have a 'baseline' to compare to. One other question, when you drive yor car , does the vibration improve at all after 5 miles or so , on a highway (constant speeds of 45MPH or better? If so then your car may have sat for an extended period and the tires became 'flatspotted'. IF that's the case , then they need to put 'fresher' tires (even if swapped from another car on lot) on your car. Hopefully that's the case and you don't have to sweat the thought of wether or not you got a 'lemon'. Good luck.

    I have a 2012 Mazda 3. I had busted motor mount front right last year, 4 months after purchase and now my transmission / motor mount just broke 2 weeks ago. I have 46,000 on the car and am going to have to put on a 3rd set of tires. Ruined the first 2 sets and no one knows what is wrong. They don't want to fix 2nd motor mount under warranty so it is just sitting there considering I paid an additional 2000.00 through the dealership for the extended warranty. Mazda makes great cars but don't think you are going to get truthful answers if you take it in under warranty. Mazda service is poor at best!!!
