My Mazda 3 Neo Sport is gutless and sounds like diesel engine, slow to pick up on acceleration, not true acceleration! On kick down acceleration engine very loud noise! On cold start engine very loud due to auto choke on! High rev of engine is annoying, it sounds like its about to blow up! If I keep driving this car the engine will suffer with hydraulic lifters will become noise very quickly! I got this car from Mazda in Geelong! Mazda corporation has to fix this or I do not want the car anymore!

My opinion could be fixed by reprogram the computer control to the pickup sensor! The driving speed on the cruise control if i set it to 100km it is not reading correct speed, it is under by 4 to 5km! Blue temperature light keeps coming on when cold start does not go out for 4minutes! The sensor on the radiator to the coolant is expensive and if it gets destroyed by the problems of the car Mazda has to replace and not Me the owner!
