Since launch last year, the second-generation Mazda3 has proven to be one of the C-segment’s most attractive cars. It’s line-up of two different body styles – a sporty hatchback and an athletic saloon – along with a sports version, and three diesel engineshas been a big hit with European customers looking for stylish driving fun in a compact car.
Mazda UK is asking owners of some Mazda3 cars from October onwards to visit their local dealer for a free precautionary technical check of the power steering system. In the absence of power assistance the vehicles remain safe to drive. This is part of a Special Service Programme to check for possible residual particles in the power steering pipes which could cause the hydraulic power assistance system and its electric pump to overheat and shutdown.
