Hello. New to the Mazda world with a 2017 Mazda3 se-l in machine grey.

Bought approved used so fingers crossed no need for lots of regional advice.

I've come from a Mk4 Golf which had a world of forums and YouTube video guides etc. From viewing here it seems very quiet...
Hopefully that's a good thing - not too much going wrong to moan about?!

You have to remember the Golf 4 is an old car now and they weren't particularly reliable new.

There's a lot of people with old cars, on shoe string budgets, doing work themselves and they have multiple common faults that people will have seen time and again. So you have an active following on line just because so many people are fixing broken cars themselves.

The only common fault on your new car is electric mirrors that decide not to fold. Otherwise they pretty much crack on so there's not really an awful forum traffic about faults.

Thanks. Had the folding mirror issue the first day but as I've used then they seem to have cleared up and work okay now. Keeping an eye on them...
