Mazda Reliability

Reliability concerns about Mazda. 2013 Mazda 3 with 45K miles.

Hi Scotty,

Just wondering how reliable is Mazda. The reason been my friends 2013 Mazda 3 with 45000 miles is giving some troubles lately. Last year he had to replace his dashboard due to Dashboard melting. Now his wiper motor is not working. When we went to dealer to fix that found more issues. Power steering fluid leaking, Rear sway bar loosen, need to replace front brake pads and resurface rotors. total cost $1400+..!! Isn't this too early for a 45000 miles car? Like to know your opinion about Mazda's. Is it worth repairing or should trade in and go for a reliable Honda or Toyota.

Many thanks,


go toyota, that's only the tip of the iceberg on poorly made madzda

Thank you Scotty. Really enjoy your videos. Pls keep it up..
