The Mazda3 2014 review
What do we do when it”s – 30 degrees Celsius? We contact the garage! On the other hand, in our case, it was mainly because the car or truck … began properly! So we telephone a pal Ghyslain, garage Roch Lavallee and Son of Granby, and he gently raised our Mazda3 test this week to see what she”s hiding.
Initial, Ghyslain pointed out to us that the 4-cylinder two.five-liter requerait oil Synthetic -20, which facilitates beginning in winter. And God knows that this winter, it”s significant! Produced a note, we have observed no area FoMoCo (Ford Motor Co.), proving that Ford and Mazda are now fully separated entities.
Plates and rust.
The underside of the car or truck is extremely properly protected by plastic plates that abduct simply for upkeep. This protects the underside, by cons, if the owner produced a day dealing with a rust automates company, it will have to have to make certain that these plaques will be abducted prior to application. Otherwise, it will be cash thrown in the water … Anyway, if the joints are properly protected, lots of components of the chassis nevertheless has naked, which is under no circumstances extremely superior to counter rust.
The front suspension is extremely standard and somewhat resembles the Mazda3 the prior generation. The components (arms, caps, and so forth.) are not specifically huge but need to be enough to the intended use … even for a car or truck referred to as GT! What is surprising is that no area is aluminum, which would have helped lighten the weight, so consumption. But it would expense a lot more … The rear suspension is independent multilink has. The rooms are superior size for the category.
In the course of our week of testing, or the temperature descended to inhuman levels, our Mazda3 GT automatic gearbox six reports consumes an typical of 7.six l / 100 km according to the onboard personal computer and 7.eight when calculating “a” mitten “(70.15 liters per 902 km). In summer season, we may possibly be in a position to obtain 7.1 l / 100 km proclaim Mazda for the city. The transmission operates with transparency and layering is excellent for a “standard” driving. On our car or truck, reports could be exchange working with the paddles behind the steering wheel. It was even doable to downshift though remaining on the D.
