Teething problems on new Mazdas tend to be rare and minor so you can understand the dealer initially thinking it was probably something or nothing. In this case it has been identified as something major. Two days on from that happening they have you in something tasty as a loan car and are working on a solution. Looks like things are going to turn out well for you. Presumably it's a faulty engine block casting. Does anybody know if the up-rated 2.0 block is any different to the previous 2.0?

Way faster than I think I could make it do by accelerating, braking heavily then accelerating hard again. 

I haven’t had an update today but I’ll keep updating when I get further information. Thanks everyone for the input  





My Mazda 3 (2018 MY) does this going up a slope 2.0 (120ps) seems fine all other times, it has a definite hesitation but I've always put it down to being cold as I always notice it on the same on slip when leaving the office.

Mine hesitates slightly (only) when the engine's cold, it's always done that.  On a cold engine I always try & drive gently (of course) until it's warmed through but it's sometimes difficult to do that when joining the busy 40mph main road on the end of my street; occasionally, due to traffic, I have to accelerate a little more quickly than I'd ideally like to do with a cold engine & this is when the car feels as if it's holding back a bit.
