The most common Mazda problems

Mazda-common-problems

Problems solved during Mazda’s recalls do not usually determine the reliability of the vehicle itself. Even the common-recalled model can be a good choice, and vice versa.

It is good to be informed, however, what problems the manufacturer has recalled most often. At least to know whether the defect was corrected by the previous owner, when buying a second-hand car. You should check your vehicle VIN with your nearest Mazda dealer using our special page.
