2014 Mazda 3: Dash Creak Is Back

September 4, 2014

2014 Mazda 3

Back in May I took our 2014 Mazda 3 to the dealer for its first service and to have a TSB repair performed to eliminate the dash creak. I drove the car last week for the first time since then and it's clear the creak is back. However, since then I've made a discovery.

Further research proved I was wrong back in May about there being a TSB issued for this problem. I searched the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration's site anticipating the TSB, but found nothing.

Even so, the dealer didn't dispute the dash creak and when I left there that day it wasn't creaking. Didn't creak the rest of the time I drove it. Now, however, there's no denying its presence. We'll ask the dealer to address the issue again on our next visit - TSB or not.
