MAZDA3 4-cyl

  • 68,800 miles
My windshield wipers stopped working. After a visit to the shop, I learned that my micro computer was not working and needed to be replaced. This repair cost $729. After some research I found that this is a very common problem with Mazda 3S made around 2008. My car is only 5 years old with fairly low mileage, I believe that a defective part caused the problem and this issue should be evaluated for recall and reimbursement. Thank you.
