any owner to comment this car electronics reliability (power door, power boot, 3rd row seat motor, etc) ?

am also considering getting a used 2012 onwards unit

 

am deciding between this full of technology accessory but slightly under power mpv againts starex (high power, full size but just plain without much technologies)

 

as reliability (fixing and maintenance) cost will play a deciding factor between these, i really need to know the above

 

appreciate if any owner can comment

 

btw, does this comfortably fit 5 big size adults around 5'10, weighing over 100kgs each ?   you know i have a BIG family ....hence these 2 choices

Mazda 8 shares common parts with Mazda 6, as my Mazda 5 shares common parts with Mazda 3. the previous gen 2.3L and 2.0L MZR engines in Mazda 8, 6, 5 and 3 are pretty reliable and common wear and tear parts are not hard to find. FC wise also not bad.

Most of the forum members are either now in our FB page, look for Mazda 8 Owners' Club Malaysia (https://www.facebook...39092789473665/) or even more active in the whatsapp group.  Thanks for following this forum.

Hi all My Mazda 8 (Year 2012) is having aircon problem. I already went to my local aircon workshop twice to top-up its aircon gas. After few days, the aircon will no longer blow cool air. Any recommendation for Mazda aircon specialist in PJ or KL? Thanks

If need to keep topping up gas, means there is a leak some where.

 

If need Mazda specialist, Better you check Mazda owner club in FB.... ;)
