$29, 750 way back in January. They were wanting to get rid of their 04 stock so not so much leeway for me cos I asked for an 05 build.

Freebies included the standard mats, tint, and I added reverse parking sensors.

Put me down as a SP23 owner. Manual, Strato Blue.
It seems most people have something against the strato, but I love it. Get it in the sunlight and it looks wicked.

My only trouble with it is I can't seem to keep the bloody thing clean!! Thank you WaxGaurd for letting me be lazy.

Mate of mine works at a Mazda dealer and the factory in Japan keeps falling further and further behind on delivery dates cause there so god damn popular. I guess we can all expect to be not as original as we first hoped! Can we all say "Commodore"? :)

Hi every Mazda 3 owners!!

I'm new to this forum, just got something to share with you guys.

I owned my Mazda 3 Maxx Sport Auto (Grey) from last yr Oct.. I love this car so much!! Was going to get it since it lauched!! (well.. my parents didn't allow me to buy it at first) haha... I'm crazy about this car.. I would smile everytime when i see this car before i bought it myself!! :lol:

Anyway.. I bought my car at ROCKDALE mazda... i was lucky that i didn't have to wait for a long time to get my car.. i picked up my car after a week i paid my deposit! :p

but when i got the car, i found that there's problem with my driver side window, i heard some strange noise when i closed the window... after 2 weeks when i did my 1000km service and told them to fix it up, however, the problem hasn't been solved. After 3 months of driving, one morning i couldn't start my car!!! i thought it's just once in a while problem and it's not that serious.. so i just ignored it.. but after that, the problem get more seriously... every sunday (yes!! every sunday.. it's really strange!!! and it's the only day that i start my car in the afternoon rather than in the morning!) i couldn't start my car.. i booked in for a check up for my car at rockdate mazda again and they said there's no problem at all!!! oh gosh..

so i brought my car for 10k service at john newell mazda in may, they fixed up the window problem and replaced the fuel pump for me... they said that the engine is hard to start due to faulty fuel pump... after they replaced it for me, the car was fine for 2 mths.... by the way...their service is much better than rockdale mazda!!!! :D

in aug, i called up mazda customer service and complaint my car couldn't start once a week.. and they told me to drive it to john newell again for check up..... they replaced the fuel pump for me AGAIN!!!! but it didn't work.. my car still hard to start and the engine gets some abnormal noise when start up....

I've reported that to Mazda head office last week (early sep) and still waiting for their call... i really dunno what can i do.. i really love my car and i dun want to get another car!! i'm really upset... do anyone have any suggestion????

thanks!!!

Hmm you could try visiting http://www.ozmazdaclub.com/
I remember reading about these faulty fuel pumps but no solution...I'm sure someone there would know about it.

What did JN say about the problem with your window? Because mine is making noises when I close now too, it's pretty annoying...
Well, good luck with everything :)
they said some parts in the window were loosed so they just fixed it...

will do service again next mth.. hope they can fix up the fuel pump problem for me!!!
