Suspension problem
2009 Mazda 3 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 23000 miles

Hi I purchased my Mazda 3 1.6 Sport, Dynamic.
exactly 1 year ago, the car runs fine, but I am experiencing a very bumpy ride. There is a lot of feeback to the steering wheel and gear region when the car rides over less smooth roads.

1)Would the problem be the shocks, however fitted from factory.
2) Would it be a suspension problem with the struts
3) A factory flaw?
4) Is this normal for these cars

Thanks

Hi there,

Has this been since you got the car or has it just developed?

Second thought,

have you mentioned this to the dealer during servicing, you may have a warranty claim pending if there is any strut leakage.

Well to be honest in the beginning it has given this same ride. I have tried to do a bit of research and they say that this is normal for sport-spec cars as they have a low suspension, however you almost feel every vibration from the road.

I did not tell the dealer as I thought it was normal

Have not driven one with that suspension spec, get the dealer to check to be sure.
