    I had Mazda call me after I filled in a survey and indicated that I was not satisfied because the dealer was not able to fix the problem.

    They told me they were not aware of a problem with the model and that the dealer would go on a road test with me. I told him they can wait till my next service (as annoying as it is).

    I mentioned that a number of people on the MPS forums were having similar issues and the Mazda representative’s comment was along the lines 'we don't read forums'.

    What can you do? I didn’t realise I would be a ‘Beta’ tester buying a new car. Lesson learnt.

    do u guys get this stale smell coming from the vents after u turn off the air con?
    Ive had it ever since the red dust storm...im thinkin it mite be some dirty filters or something.

    i know a few other 3 owners had same problem.

    Ive mentioned it to mazda at my last service and they said its normal.

    Hey arden, turn your a/c on turn fan up (middle to high) open dr door and pass door,spray either Glenn 20 or llysol into air intake between bonnet and windscreen. Let run for 10 minutes .dont empty the can into it either.Works for me.

    Tune house is the place to go.. awesome service.

    Oldhead.. thats a simpler approach.. Wish I had of thought of that.

    Farken dust storm, you should have seen what it done to my aircraft.

    Hope it didnt get into the jet/turbines.Just make sure the air hostesses have to wear dust masks.
