Breakdown with 45 miles on the clock.
« on: July 08, 2019, 04:10:50 PM »
Gone to start the car and its dead as a Dodo, Mazda breakdown service came out and said they have had a few like this
and returned them to the dealership so at the moment waiting for the breakdown truck to take it back and waiting for a replacement car.
The technician who came out said don't hold your hopes up for a quick turn around as the others that have gone back to the dealers are still waiting for the diagnostic software from Mazda as they have not got it yet as it is so new.
Not so good. :( :( :(

Yes the hire car turned up at 2:30 pm and I had a call off the dealer saying my car was ready if i wanted to collect it
or they would deliver it but i went and collected it and left the hire car at the dealers.
They said the problem was the hybrid battery was dead and had to be recharged and it's been fine since in the
end Mazda compensated me with £200.00 towards accessories not too bad I suppose
