Any issues again with oil levels?Not that it’s a real consideration but since my last ecu update on the diesel variant, I now get around 7-8L /100 with city driving and still as low as 6.4 on the highway.
Any issues again with oil levels?
I got a Mazda2 1.5 diesel and had the the wrench light come on. Took it to Mazda, was told car was running rich. And they reflashed the ECU
After that I drove another ±4000km before normal service.
Had a drive from Cape Town to George tonight. And kept a strong 120km/h all mostly all the way. And wrench light came on again. This time around, it's not even 5000km since the last service.
I'm on my extended warranty, so will be taking it in on Wednesday. Really hoping they can remove the DPF rather to completely eliminate the Regen/overfueling issue. Otherwise, I'm def getting rid of this amazing little rocket
YepYeah they have to take the door panels off and stuff. They did both of mine under warranty. Now days when I get a car wash I leave my mirrors locked out until they dry. Dunno if the pressure washing was causing an issue, the area doesn’t seem very well sealed.
So basically get rid of the car before the warranty runs outSo i called up Allen Jones Mazda to make a booking after i got approval from AA Warranties for the repair and discovered that Mazda doesn't have an account with AA Warranties as an actual fact AA Warranties doesn't have an account with any Mazda dealerships in Pretoria.
So i got about to make contact with various workshops which work with AA Warranties and the only shop that replied is Tip Top tyres based in PTA north.
They put together a quite which amounts to R7000, i then asked for a detailed quote which showed details as if i am replacing the mirror.
It didn't make sense as they told me that Mazda informed them that the whole mirror needs to be replaced as the actuator is part of the mirror assembly.
So i showed them the quote i have from Mazda dealership and i am waiting for a revised quote and retails before i can resubmit to AA Warranties for approval.
Got the correct quote later yesterday from Tip Top, send it through to AA who replied this morning with approval.So basically get rid of the car before the warranty runs out
I really like Mazda as they offer some premium level and are well solid cars.It's kinda disappointing to see such issues on a Mazda, now it just sounds like a Ford thread, I have always held Mazda in high regard when it comes to reliability, it would be sad if they are falling behind all the other Japanese brands, intermittent, unexplained electronics issues can be a pain.
Looking at purchasing a 2019 / 2020 CX-5 2.2 Diesel Akera with low kilometers. Despite all that has been discussed in this thread is there anything to look out for on these models?
Hoping to include a full maintenance plan from Mazda in the deal.
