    Wow, those pics look like they could be from a Protege. Makes me really reconsider buying another Mazda in the future.

    It was only a small spot but thankfully Mazda took care of it under warranty.

    Sucks there is still a rust issue, hopefully its only related to the trunk.



    Had the same area covered on my car under warranty.

    Thumbs down Re: Gen3 - Rust already...?

    I also have a 2015 GT Sedan (Japanese built) and live in Ottawa. About six months ago I had rust issues coming out of the spot welds on the trunk lip area and it was taken care of by Mazda under the warranty. However, since then, more rust has appeared in three places: two near the trunk/plate lights and a rust spot on the rear passenger door interior. See the photos I have attached.

    I actually leased this car and have one more year to go. I love this car and was actually going to buy it out at the end of the lease. But I will have to reconsider. Given that a rust spot is appearing inside the door, I suspect that the rust issue is not isolated to the trunk area.

    Hey all,

    I have a 2014 Mazda 3 sport soul red and made in Japan,

    I just bought it CPO certified and a month later have noticed some rust bubbling on the front wheel arches by the front bumper cover,

    Looks like it wont be covered under warranty despite me just buying the car, really kicking my self for not inspecting that part closer and having any faith in Mazda products improving rust protection since my 2004 Mazda 3,

    Does anyone else have any rust here? can this part have a long lasting repair? as of now its not very bad, and can the dealership help me?
    Mazda Canada emailed me back and basically said I was SOL and gave me some wrong warranty dates

    I just sprayed some corrosion free on the spot since
