So recently sold my OEM 18” rims to a man who owned a 2016 Mazda Cx3. What was interesting is that he told me he had a complete transmission failure, where it completely grenaded in stop and go traffic. I asked how many kilometres he had and was shocked by the little he did. (20,000 KM) Got me thinking I must be one of the few 2016 models with no problems... (Knock in wood) recently just hit over 80,000 Kms and everything has been routine maintenance. If honest little surprised, I drive my Cx3 like a rally car! I off-road it and drive quite spiritedly through the mountains almost on a daily occurrence. Raises the question has anyone with the 2016 model year have any problems besides the transmission?
Hmmm all very interesting... looks to be very random. Been trying to narrow down what models and year but there doesn’t seem to be any patterns. Overall have to say my Mazda has been leaps and bounds ahead of my 2008 Volkswagen GLI in regards to reliability. No real shocker I guess though.
I have a 2016 CX-3 Maxx FWD 2.0L Auto. 67000 km. Started making a whining sound a few weeks ago. Took it to Mazda. Diagnosed auto transmission renewal required. Car-less for 8 days . Gearbox and transmission replaced and picked up today. I hope all is good now...........
Hi I had the gearbox replaced last year, when I returned from a trip on a straight road, the failure occurred. Fortunately, on the additional warranty, Mazda replaced it with a new one. The car from 2016 had a mileage at the time of failure of about 34,000 km. The breakdown consisted of a problem with starting, after switching to manual and starting from second gear, it continued to change gears automatically. I reached 250 km. to home.
