This is my 3rd Mazda and it is a dud! Flat tires every week. 1900 miles and flat tires; something is very wrong and dangerous.
Mazda should admit they have a problem with this vehicle! Today I report this to the Nat'l Safety Board.

Do you drive a 2010 MAZDA MAZDA3?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
