Hi,

I'm Kat, I'm originally from Germany but live in Maryland now.

We just purchased our brand new CX-3 Grand Touring today and I'm still in shock :D

We hadn't planned on getting a new car, but some idiot crashed into my Yaris and totaled it - hence the need for a new car, and while I loved my little Yaris (and in principle would have preferred another tiny car for my commute), I felt like I wouldn't feel safe enough anymore after that rather horrific accident. So we looked around, compared and test drove and finally decided on the CX-3.

I hope to get some good information in this forum from others who've had this car for a while; our next step will probably be to purchase a satnav sd card, while waiting for Mazda to get the software for the car play (which is apparently imminent??) but I will search the forum regarding this.

Best wishes,
Kat

Hello Kat

I just joined the forum yesterday and had a somewhat unfortunate experience to you too. Someone went into the side of my Mazda 2 and whilst it wasn't as bad a crash as yours it was sufficient to get me thinking to buy bigger too. I have always driven tiny cars ( my first 2 cars were 3 cylinder and when I eventually traded up to a Mazda 2 it felt huge to me until I got used to it!).

I've had my CX-3 for a month now and am very happy with it and it's great to hear so many good stories about the carbinckuding yours

Hi Kat, welcome to the forum!

Your Grand Touring trim should have come with a SD card with navigation. If you don't have one, you should contact the dealer.

Thanks! I've had it almost two weeks now and so far, I'm loving it.

I got a satnav card on Ebay for $95 - seems to be the real thing and works just fine.
Just filled her up the other day and the tank does seem small - I had been driving on pretty much empty for a while (those last far little bars go down extremely quickly!! I thought I'd run out on the highway!) and when I got to the gas station, it only took 9.7 gallons...I'm assuming there must have been more gas left in the tank than I had thought, I seem to remember reading something about the tank holding a little over 11 gallons?

So far, the mpg only says about 24 something, but it seems to be slowly creeping up - I guess it's a New Car thing as it started at around 6.

I could have maybe just a smidgen more pick-up, but I do like the gear paddles on the steering wheel - I like those better than using the sports mode - that doesn't really do much for me (unless I'm using it wrongly??)

I've got lots of compliments so far!!

Kat :laugh:
