Mazda 3 first service
« on: December 07, 2017, 06:04:57 PM »
Had my first service on my new Mazda 3 at littlewick green berkshire.
I noticed after a couple of weeks I had an oil leak. Took it back to the garage, left it from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday night. Problem sump plug fitted incorrectly, no apology, plus waste of my time, for a routine exercise

I must admit I don't have much confidence of main dealers either.  Our new Mazda 3 had soft tyres (and therefore the the TPMS light) on the way home from buying it brand new, then the same again after they fitted 4 new wheels due to the coating peeling off.  The service receptionist even had the cheek to tell me it's the owners responsibility to check tyre pressures on that second incident too.  My chat with the service manager went a bit differently, but it's still rediculous that a 'specialist Mazda' mechanic can't get 4 tyre pressures right.

They do seem to have a blind spot on tyre pressures..

My comment card on picking my car up pointed out 2.2 bar is not the same as 22psi!

I wonder how incorrectly it was fitted to enable it to leak, if it was just loose fair enough, but if it was cross threaded how about sump thread damage in the future.
