2014 Mazda 3 S: Range Meter Goes to Zero

January 29, 2014

2014 Mazda 3 S

Rather than wimping out at 20 miles like a lot of cars, the Mazda 3's range predictor goes to zero. I'm a just-in-time kind of guy. I like that.

Why do you guys do this? This is why the gauges on cars don't give real time accurate readings. Fuel gauges will indicate empty even when there is still fuel in the tanks so ignorant individuals don't get stuck on side of the road. Temperature gauges indicate overheating before the temperature gets high enough to damage the engine.

@allthingshonda, I couldn't agree more. It drives me nuts that they beat this to death with every single car. Who cares?! Just stop and get gas.
