2009 Mazda 3 s Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


I've had my Mazda3 for a little over a year and I have had some issues with the car that should not be present with only 15,000 miles on the odometer. The brake system make an awful growling noise each time I back it out of my garage. Sevice engine light came on at 13,000 miles, was told that the gas cap needs replaced, replaced it and at 14,000 miles the light came back on. I will have to replace the tires soon, wore out way to soon. Road noise is very annoying, seems to get worse as the tires quickly wear. The whole Mazda experience has not been very good for me, zoom-zoom-BOOM?

Best Features

Overall look of the car, and the power the engine produces.

Worst Features

Every time I back out of my garage and hear that awful growl coming from my rear brakes, it makes me sick, this problem needs addressed by Mazda. Gas mileage needs improvement. For heaven's sake fix the gas cap problem.
