I"m plan to get one this year. 

 

Questions: 

Why so many existing owners are selling their Mazda 3?

How much is the service cost of Mazda 3 ? 

Where to service Mazda nearby Puchong, Seri Kembangan,Balakong and PJ. 

How do you define many selling? Other makes also many selling their cars off.

If buying one that is over warranty you don't need to send back to their SC mah! Most SC have to use their oil and prices are higher.....

Yes, I"m agree with you which does not need to service at Mazda service center. Thus, I"m asking for Mazda specialist workshop near by Puchong, Seri Kembanga, PJ or Balakong.

Hi Peter,

Can't answer you why owners are selling off their cars, too many reasons to cover.

The only problem with 2014-2016 Mazda 3 would be the front lower arm bushes. Others if you are picky enough to pick them up.

The rear is using Multilink.

 The bushes are alright. You can claim them from SC. Assuming your car has been serviced fully at Mazda SC. 

 

Other things to look out for? Take note of the serpentine belt tensioner. Usually under warranty. Other than this, nothing much. Unless you consider the Q85 start stop battery a nuisance, then it's gonna cost you RM450 per pc. Haha... 2014 - 2016 should be equipped with i-eloop function. This baby gonna cost about 1.5k to replace. 

 

Good luck.
