2014 Mazda 3: Tapping Noises

March 21, 2014

2014 Mazda 3

A couple of weeks ago Mike Magrath mentioned squeaking noises coming from our long-term 2014 Mazda 3.

I drove this car for the first time last night. As I was slowly making my way along the freeway at about 20 mph, I noticed tapping noises. They seemed to be coming from under my feet, behind the steering column and from the passenger door.

Nothing seemed amiss other than the noise. I'll let Mike Schmidt know in case he wants to have our Mazda 3 checked out before its first suggested oil change at 10,000 miles.

Do any of you have a Mazda 3? Have you noticed any strange noises?
