2012 Mazda Mazda3: Trouble in River City
August 03, 2012
No, these 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv hatchbacks are not being given the suspension walkaround treatment by dealer staffers. Instead this tiny Mazda dealership in Brookings, Oregon has been hit by tire-slashing vandals, with about a dozen Mazda 3 sedans and hatchbacks taking it in the sidewalls.
These two are up on jackstands awaiting new tires; the white car and others behind it are sitting on their rims waiting for their turn on the jackstands. Oddly, a Mazdaspeed 3 and numerous CX-5 SUVs nearby escaped unharmed.
This kind of thing makes my blood boil.
