I bought a new Mazda 3, 2012, Sky Activ technology yesterday. It was fine during the test drive.
This morning I noticed a squeak and drove to the dealer. They briefly looked at it and said the belt was going through a breaking-in period. It was damp today.
I don't really believe this. I am scared they are ignoring a serious problem.
The mechanic said he saw no fraying in the belt and he said if a pulley was bad, it would clank.
Do you agree?
