Hi All,
New to the forum and club, but we've owned a gen-2 MPS Mazda 3 for two years - pearl white, 41k miles, 2010 model, standard car (as far as we know), based in Rugby.
Had a few teething issues so far, some typical Mazda; clock, sat-nav (both related), TPMS gremlins, top mounts on the front (sports suspension vs thousands of speed bumps). A couple of issues from the wife; 3 monthly engine warning light resets from being driven 3 miles a day at <30mph, top mounts on the front (wife's tendency to not slow down for or avoid said speed bumps).
Love the car/power and how much 'better' or 'newer' machinery you can hustle in it, not too keen on the handling when pushing on or the single digit mpg when exercising the right foot. Many thanks,
Andy B

Hi Andy and welcome.

Only had mine a few weeks now. Mine also has the no GPS and clock problem. Got it booked into the garage on 30th. They suspect a loose GPS connection in back or faulty GPS module? Either way they are paying for it :) Will let you know what fixed it.

Dale.

Hey, I'm new too, in Coventry. Boy had much chance to drive yet... Mostly just replacing all the bushings, etc. And now it won't start... Probably corroded starter wire given the weather, still, it's a great car and I enjoyed a trip to the peak District with it at least!

Just a follow up on the Satnav/clock issue. Dealer installed a new GPS unit. Had to remove the roof lineing to fit. £380 fitted and paid for by them :)

Sheesh, well at least it works now. I have a mk1 so fitting satnav involves attaching my phone to the dash...

I’m new to the forum also. Bought a 3 gen 2 a month ago. 42000 miles. I love it but the EML came on yesterday with a P2096 code. Now I’m worried about it.

That’s nothing to worry about.
