My old Mazda 5 developed a clunking noise in the rear at about 105K -- turned out to be a defective strut. Further inspection showed that all the struts were starting to show signs of wear, so replaced both front and rear with Bilsteins. No further issues after that, and it did tighten up the ride quite a bit.The suspension makes some clunks in the rear occasionally but I think it might be the sway bar and the end links. Still solid.
LOL well aren't we just missing the whole market. Now that you've mentioned it watch for it in the near future.They don't make a 300k high mileage oil, only 75k and 150k so you're out of luck for now, you'll just have to keep using what you have been. But next should be 225k and then 300k.
Yes you did; first post, second paragraph: "My Mazda 3 now has over 300,000 miles and I'm just wondering what can I do to keep it going. I honestly did not think about reaching this much mileage but here it is. It's a 2008 model with the 2.0 and it's doing really well. "Did I miss where OP said what year/model/trim AT/MT?
I have that in my New Ecosport. I though they only put in the tiny 1.0 litre 3cyl turbo !That has the Ford 2.0 engine great engine
