i understand that you understand what we dont like about the 3's and 6's...and i understand that you've read about the problems... or defects as you may call them, that have been posted on the forum =) the only defect is that you havent gotten a 3 or 6 yet ;)! honestly its a damned solid car and there are minor glitches on a handful of members here...so i think most of the "defects" that are known have been covered in the forum.

There's 4 things that some people have encountered.

1- air bag crash sensor light comes on due to a defect in the original sensor. (this is mostly in Canada or where you get lots of humidity because it's what is causing the original sensor to malfunction.

2- fuel pump

3- Car pulling on one side so in need of an alignment.

4- rear brake rotor getting a deep groove in it.

These are the main stuff that has come up...some other things happened to others but they are more isolated cases.


That being said...the 3 is a fine car....hell my friend's acura air conditioning in his new car had a problem...the water instead of dripping below the car was actually dripping inside the car....a new car being flooded....not pleasant.
Keep in mind that you would be extremely unlucky to have all 4 defects. I only got the air bag sensor problem and it's fixed. Everything else is working great.

You can also do a search because most issues have been already discussed on the board.
