Exclamation Transmission issues?

Hey guys,

I've loved my Cx-3. I've had it for nearly 5000 miles and now all of a sudden the car sometimes has issues where it does not go into gear from a stop sign, so it'll just rev the engine and the car will not move.

Other times, the car lurches forward instead of having a smooth acceleration. When driving, the car suddenly seems a lot more sluggish, with a lot less acceleration and power as it used to.

What should I do? I thought this car would be reliable and that's why I spent so much $$ on it. The last time this happened was with my old Corolla, and that turned out to be a fuel pump / transmission issue which the dealer could not figure out until the car died and had to be towed. That was such a huge headache and a lot of money to fix.

I have a CX3 Touring AWD USA model.

A couple people have also had transmission issues, I'll try to find and post the threads.

At any rate, go to the Mazda dealer and have them look into it immediately.

Your car is still under warranty, so there's really no need to stress. Bring it to the dealer and let them do their thing. Ask for a loaner if they'll have it more than a day or so.

Good Grammar is not a time of waste.

Just updating this thread.

Took my car to the Ford "mazda" Dealer here. He wasn't able to figure out what was going on and we even went for a drive. He said he wouldn't fix anything until the car was broken. This is such B$. The car is no where as fast as it was when I bought it. Guess i'll have to settle for a slow CX3. Probably sell it for a miata in a few years.

Ask the dealer to set up an appointment with one of Mazdas field engineers.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.

Was he unable to duplicate the problem, or unable to find the cause?

By the sound of it, unable to duplicate the problem. I'm surprise the car hasn't stored and fault codes.
