Maintenance / Re: 2.2d 6th Service

Thanks for the reply Steven.

£600-£700 I would be OK with from a main dealer. I have contacted Donalds Mazda in Ipswich for them to provide a quote on the same work.

I had a look at the Scheduled Maintenance plan on the other sub-forum and saw it showed the Injectors as Inspection only so confused why I've been told they'll be replaced.

Will keep you posted!

If I recall correctly the fuel injectors are removed and inspected, the pipes leading to them and the single use washers that seal them are replaced. Seem to recall the top of the engine comes off and the rocker cover gasket is replaced as well. 970 seems a lot, most people seem to cringe at the 6-700 it usually comes out at.

Maintenance / 2.2d 6th Service
« Last post by Xp132476 on January 04, 2018, 02:49:28 PM »
Hi All,

I've been reading a few posts on here around Mazda 3's and an expensive 6 year service.

I have just been quoted £970 by Underwoods in Colchester for this work, which compared to others on here seems steep (that's with a 10% discount apparently).

The lady on the phone did call as I had wrongly been given paperwork when I purchased in April 2017 that said a 5th service was next. She advised that fuel injectors would be changed but didn't elaborate on anything else.

Any ideas if this is a reasonable price or not?

Thanks in advance,

PT

Vehicle Electrics / Fuel Economy Display
« Last post by Alfisto on January 04, 2018, 12:54:48 PM »
Although I've had the car over 18 months now, I've only just learned of the fuel economy display.
I've gone into the settings for it and synced it to Trip A which has now given me a better display. I've also ticked the box to show the fuel economy on shut down but it shows the iStop information not fuel economy.
Should I be able to show the actual fuel economy graphs on shut down?

Mine has the scuff plates and alloy pedals already. Just ordered some wind deflectors as I really like the look and they work quite well.

I want to down he aero kit route, but time will tell. Unless you have deep pockets, there isn't much in the way of kits.

Bonnet lifters are a must, and maybe a bit (fair amount) in the way of hydro dipping!

Hi
Yes definitely the best colour :)
What  changes are you planning?
Just bought some scuff plates for mine and will get the interior welcome lights done at some point, also do like the look with the lowering kit but undecided.

Wheels/Tyres / Re: Tyre repair gunk?
« Last post by RichardC on January 03, 2018, 03:46:01 PM »
I agree that manufacturers say that the weight saved by not having a spare wheel  improves fuel economy. To a certain extent this is true but also a load of tosh. A hybrid is fitted with an additional battery and auxiliary equipment which all adds weight and reduces fuel consumption which may or may not make up for the hybrid in the first place. Hydrogen fuel cell is the only way to go long term. Aren't politicians bright enough to realise this? I tried to buy such a car but with 3 filling stations in the UK so equipped in mid 2016 it was a no no.

Why don't all cars these days come with a minimum of a space saver?! Even my MK2 Scirocco in the 80's had one.

Weight saving leading to improved economy and a reduction to On the Road cost.  Well that's what Mazda says.  Having said that, I have an unused space saver as OEM in my Gen 1.

£180 all in - main dealer sourced alloy rim + tyre, but the long term relief now of having a "proper" full sized spare wheel will make it worth it in my case.
Let's face it - every puncture repaired with tyre gunk will cost £50+ to replace the tyre anyway and I will now no longer have the possibility of getting a flat which can't be repaired with it at the side of the road and then having the added expense of getting the car collected.
Natch has reduced the space in the boot but mostly that can be got around.
