    Hey thanks for the reply. I'm trying to figure out what happened to my first post. It was a fairly lengthy post about an issue and how I'm trying to gather complaints to report it up to Mazda USA. My 1st post didn't have any links or pictures, can you look into what happened? After posting I got the typical "your post is in review by a moderator..."

    Appreciate the help!

    That's really... stupid. The owners of the forum really go out of their way to hinder the use of this place as a resource for owners. I don't feel so bad about running an ad blocker now.

    Hey, any reason why some of my posts are held for moderation while others are automagically approved?

    Hi Anchorman
    I dunno what Club/Forum the rules are but am trying to shift the "winters" I have.
    I don't see why the trade in guys should have em.
    I hope it's ok to offer them free to good home via this site.
    After all stopping distance important in saving lives -)
    Thanks

    hi - did the horns (managed to do without removing the bumper but thank you!).
    Another question - I have the GT CX3 version with an armrest but no center covered bin under it - I purchased the armrest with covered bin from the UK (a mazda part) and wanted to install - I see the instructions and I see I believe you've done it - question though - I'm not even sure how to begin to REMOVE the armrest that Mazda had installed - the one without the covered bin - there are no visible screws to remove it - I could pull but I'm concerned it's mounted somehow and I'd break something. Please advise!! thanks!

    " ... and another thing" sounds like a classic Steve Jobs-ism.

    I don't see an option to update those fields so assume its an Admin feature. We can ask them to change accordingly. Good call on those updates.

    no problem.

    Having been a mod on various forums it's something you have to keep on top of. The forum for my previous model car closed in the end because it got spammed to death!

    Hi.

    If you don't need a particularly fast car then the diesel will be fine. I had to have it as it was the only option on the AWD auto. I would have had a petrol but only because it saves all the hoo ha regarding emissions that everyone is on about these days and I do think the petrol might accelerate faster. However, the diesel is super smooth and pulls like a train at low down revs. Once moving it is as quiet as any petrol and generally, they are better on fuel. What I would advise is that you stay away from supermarket diesel and only use branded fuel or better still the high grade stuff. This will avoid problems with the various emission valves and above all, the particulate filter in the exhaust.

    Any further questions, just ask.

    Regards.

    Don.

    Hi, anchorman!

    Can you tell me how are you satisfied with the car and how its pulling. Is there enough power or no. I am still waiting for my 1.5 Cx3 and while reading all the reviews im thinking that maybe it would be better choice with 2.0 120hp. My dealer didnt have diesel to test drowe so I am little worried. I dont need super fast car, but car that puls just fine for normal driving. Thanks!
