Hi everyone! Have you experience any unusual issue in your electrical power steering system? Mine is getting stuck sometimes light resistance. It is also noticable when stationary where turning to the left feels a little harder with little feel of motor resisting the turn. The dealer changed the shaft assembly but the issue again appeared. Your feedback is highly appreciated. Mine is 2020 model 2wd without lane assist. Thanks and Godbless!

Mine is doing similar!!
I’ve had steering shaft replaced and now it’s doing it again. I’ve been back and forth with Mazda since December and it’s a joke now.
Turning left it get stuck and then if I pull it moves again and I end up over correcting.
then trying to keep the car straight on the road any minor correction it’s notches and gets ‘stuck’ and the releases and I again over correct.

Hi Shelby, I can understand the frustration ive been reporting the issue many times also and when we do test drive the car is normal. When did they change your steering shaft? You’re completely right it is a pain to keep the car straight and drive normally when steering is getting stucked

ive read that some people where experiencing the issue in a Honda Civic and when they started experiencing it they would go to the dealership then and they wouldn’t turn their car off while waiting for someone to drive it.
The steering shaft was replaced in January and then it was good for about 6 weeks and started playing up again in March.
I’ve read in the Honda Civic it was the EPS RACK. So the electric power steering rack, which hasn’t been replaced.
I started a conversation on here last night and someone has replied saying they are experiencing the same thing!!! We have to get to the bottom of this!

May i ask the year model of your cx3 and if yours is a 2wd? From my understanding our power steering motor is in the steering column assembly and the steering rack does not have a motor (correct me if i am wrong). Other cars have a motor and torque sensor in the steering rack

STEERING WHEEL COVER
Recently i was in the emergency dept of our local hosiptal getting sewn up for some dumb i did.
I asked the surgeon what was the most infectiouse ,he said" the mouth" I was hoping he would say the steering wheel cover on a car.
Recently I removed my steering wheel cover for a cleaning, the amount of gunge that came off the cover was unbeleivably and nasty.
Steering wheels are the last thing people think to clean and sanatize.

Better still get a new cover.

HI Mazbi, mine is a July 2020 Build dated CX3 front wheel drive (2wd)

I think you are right! I have the steering rack replaced but I think the issue (from what I have read etc) is with the electric power steering column assembly.

I have a case with Mazda Australia and I have a field technician coming to drive my car on Friday as the steering is getting worse since Saturday (5 days) and is starting to make a clicking sound kind of.

What build date is yours ?

okay my car was July 2020 build. And had ‘steering shaft’ replaced according to paperwork in January/feb this year and then approx 6 weeks later the problem returned.
They then lubricated some part of the steering and it was good again for 6 weeks or so and now it’s the worst it’s been basically.
Oh yes can you send video privately ?

I think when they changed ur shaft the motor was changed also as it comes with that assembly, i wonder which part did they lubricated. Mine was changed again now and hoping that issue never returns. Oh sory i think no option to send video here privately
