3 Sport Collected Today !
« on: September 30, 2008, 07:39:18 PM »
Hi all,

I just collected my 3 sport today and am very pleased with it - much smoother than the 6 I traded in (my 4th Mazda 6).

I do have a question though on the parking sensors that I had fitted by Mazda - when reversing into the garage, I got to within about 2 inches of the back wall and the tone didn't seem to change at all.  On hubby's car there's no noise until he gets within a coupel of feet of the wall and then the beeps get progressively faster the closer to the wall he gets and around 1 foot away, it's a continous tone.  Anyone know how they work on the 3 please ?  I've tried the search function but nothing relevant to my query came up.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. The sensors should be the same on the mazda 3 as the 6. Mazdas are great. Folks are on their second mx5, 3rd mazda 6, and i am on my second mazda having had MPS aero and now the RX8.
Who needs 4 wheels when you have 2??? Bike it baby!!!!

Thanks for the prompt replies.  Unfortunately, I didn't have sensors on my 6 (which probably accounts for a couple of minor scrapes) but just wondered whether they eventually went to a continous tone or just a series of very fast beeps.  I can imagine hubby getting confused and a beep beep beep ... bang happening  :o

When you are 1-2 inches away it will become a continuous tone.
