I enjoyed logging 3,ooo miles since purchasing it and can honestly say it runs perfect! Everything electronic works and doesn't leak a drop of anything. I even have most of the service records from the original owner as well as the original window sticker and owners manual binder as well as my own personal receipts that go with the sale.

When I purchased the van it had a check engine light for a misfire code. Apparently, two of the six coil packs that fire the spark plugs were not doing their job and as a result, damaged two of the four catalytic converters which triggered the check engine code and prevented it from passing emissions inspection.
In addition to correcting the fore mentioned issues, I wanted to be able to completely trust the van for my own family so I went over the entire vehicle myself. I replaced everything that wasn't up to snuff with new TOP OF THE LINE parts from ROCKAUTO and the help of my local mechanic.

Here's the laundry list of parts that were either about to fail or failing that I replaced and have the receipts to prove it!

All work was done within the last 3k miles...
  • new battery $100
  • oil pan gasket $50
  • both front axles $130
  • K&N air filter $50
  • new Mazda gas cap $30
  • Bosch ICON wiper blades $50
  • K&N oil filter w synthetic oil $70
  • transmission fluid flush and fill $75
  • mass airflow sensor $100
  • all weather floor mats $210
  • water pump, belt & tensioner $120
  • coolant flush and fill $50
  • 6 platinum spark plugs $30
  • 6 new coil packs $350
  • new upper plenum gaskets $40
  • 4 new cooper tires w alignment $750
  • Raybestos front rotors and pads $150
  • exhaust manifold catalysts & secondary catalysts w flex pipe, gaskets and all four oxygen sensors $1,700
  • Viper long range remote start system w lock/unlock $300

The van runs and drives perfect with no issues at all and urge anyone who is looking for a low cost, very reliable and family friendly people mover to come by and see/drive this one for yourself. Cold A/C and hot heat with remote start for getting it warmed up and toasty for those cold mornings coming soon.

The van had an aftermarket VCR installed on the floor between the front seats that powered the monitor in the ceiling but was broken so I removed the VCR but left the monitor for the next owner to get going again with a more modern DVD player.

NO disappointments with this one!

Mazda CX-3 almost ready for LA Show

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 15:00:00 EST

The Mazda CX-3 is just days away from its unveiling at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, but elsewhere in the world, the Japanese brand still has the compact crossover disguised for testing. These spy shots aren't too camouflaged though, and when combined with the previous teaser image, they give a pretty clear idea what the new model will look like.
The grille here is well covered, but the photo from the front reveals the similarities to the design sketch. The rear shows a similar horizontally oriented design as the Mazda2, which the CUV is based on. However, the dipping sides around the B-pillar from the teaser don't appear to be on this tester. Even with all the swirls, the vehicle looks fairly attractive.
Mazda is doing a fantastic job of keeping mechanical details about the CX-3 a secret. It's not yet known whether the model is front-wheel-drive only or if all-wheel drive is also an option. The crossover also likely shares the Mazda2's engine, which isn't revealed for North America, yet. The diminutive CUV will compete with a huge crop of new classmates, including the Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V. Check out the gallery for the latest glimpses of this Japanese CUV just days ahead of its full debut.

Mazda begins building Mazda3 in Mexico for US

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 15:58:00 EST

With fluctuations in international currencies and rising shipping costs to take into account, foreign automakers can't get away with building cars overseas and selling them in North America as easily as they used to. Particularly with inexpensive mainstream models. And given the benefits of cheaper labor and free trade under NAFTA, many have opted to assemble their cars for the North American market in Mexico. That's why the likes of Toyota, Mercedes and BMW have all opened plants in Mexico. And now Mazda has followed suit.
Ground was initially broken for Mazda de Mexico Vehicle Operations at Salamanca in the state of Gunajuato back in 2011, but production has just now gotten under way. The first vehicle to roll off the line? A Mazda3 sedan destined for the United States. Soon, the plant will begin production of the next Mazda2 as well, selling it alongside its larger counterpart across the Americas and in Europe as production expands to 230,000 units annually. For more information, see the official press release below.

Mazda CX-3 details come to light

Sun, 09 Dec 2012 10:57:00 EST

Mazda may be working on a new CUV, according to Auto Express. Reportedly called the CX-3, the small crossover will be engineered to take on the likes of the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke, but with a focus on fuel efficiency and engaging driving characteristics.
The report names no sources, but says the CX-3 will benefit from a new small-displacement diesel engine. The 1.6-liter oil burner will be joined by a 1.3-liter gasoline engine when the vehicle debuts in 2014. Auto Express reports the model may bow as a front-wheel drive offering only, with no all-wheel-drive option.
And what will it look like? Word has it Mazda will continue to leverage the face we've seen on the current CX-5 (pictured). That means the company's shield grille will make the jump, but with more plastic lower body cladding. Inside, Auto Express says the CX-3 will offer buyers fold-flat rear seating for extra cargo capacity.
