Air con failure on 2015 car
« on: June 08, 2017, 04:08:03 PM »
hi all,
 just to note, my Air con has stopped working on my 2015 Mazda ,  the car is booked in for a new compressor, i have read reports of others failing , all around the 8000 miles mark. no recalls at the moment but Mazda dealers do know of the  problem.,

Just had a new air conditioning condenser fitted on my 2015 Mazda 2 after 7200 miles. Did Question why it would have gone so soon but did not receive a satisfactory answer. Hopefully the new one lasts a lot longer.
Worryingly there is a thread from 2011 where condensers are having to be replaced within a relatively short time. Seems like Mazda are ignoring the problem.

I'm on my third condenser, including the original. So far, so cool.

So finally had enough - I'm am know awaiting the third replacement condenser unit for my car. The dealership have no idea when the unit will be available apparently Mazda are not supplying the units at present as they know they have a problem (as confirmed by Mazda UK customer care team) so the car has now been without effective air con since April - not what I expect from a new car which is being used everyday for motorway travel - this last month has been unbearable in the heat.
I am between a rock and hard place I can't sell the car as the air con isn't working but I can't use it for long motorway journeys if I know it's going to be hot. Mazda seem in no hurry to repair it but as  soon as it is fixed I will be selling the car and look for another manufacturer.
My journey with Mazda has come to an end.....

just an update... my air con is now working...as we have a new 2, got a call to look at the GT, we liked it so we shopped around and did a deal through carwow, now the air con is ice cold again..  :)

the Gt is great by the way, they have change a lot but they are more minor tweaks  :)
