After a ton of research and some good bargaining with the Mazda sales team I brought home my cx-3 today and I couldn't be happier! I haggled the price down to 31k all in (gs model with luxury package) with the navigation and first service thrown in as well. They didn't have the blue in stock so I had to wait a few days to get it.

Unfortunately when I got it the moonroof didn't work so it had to stay a little longer and have the windows motor replaced, a bummer for sure considering the car had 9km on it but Mazda was very prompt in fixing it, couldn't have been happier with their service.

I'm taking it on a mini road trip to the interior of BC on Thursday and I look forward to playing in some snow. I'll report back how it handles!

Welcome to the forum Kim.

I'm always suspicious when something doesn't work on a second hand car. Did the kids or even an adult play at trapping something and burn out the motor? I don't suppose we'll ever know but at least it's fixed now!

That blue always reminds me of the Kingfishers on our local river. Amazing.

Well it isn't a second hand car, brand new. Pretty sure it was just a faulty motor. Regardless Mazda was great to deal with and fixed it in no time

Oops! I read your 9km as 9000 miles! I’ll have it worn out in no time!!!

Yup. Sometimes there are those isolated cases which seems to be the case here, sucks being one of them but it's part of owning an entirely new vehicle in its first year of production.

Thanks everyone!

Taking her for a mini road trip, going to go skiing and test it out in snow! The skis fit, barely.. But my spouse is 6'2" so they aren't short skis. I'll get a roof rack eventually
Forget the armrest!!! Do your skis interfere with the cup holder? :)

Exactly, who needs armrests?? I was actually glad the Canadian cx3 doesn't have them yet..

The skis did interfere with the cup holders a bit but I was still able to use them. My skis (5'8?) fit diagonally in the back so wouldn't have to run up the center if I didn't have the tall skis there. We drove for 5 hours and we're quite comfortable.

The car handled the ice, slush and massive water puddles like a champ at highway speeds. There were definitely some sketchy sections and hills that I wouldn't have never taken my old car over but this one just marched through everything like a champ, couldn't be happier with it
