Hello all.
Had my MX30 Sport Lux since July 8th this year, no major problems so far…yes I’ve said it now🤷🏻‍♂️…
seen lots of mentions of updates, do Mazda contact you about these? Iv’e not had any contact from my local dealer about any updates.
3 issues that have come up so would like other owners thoughts please.
1. No warning light when windscreen washers are low
2. If you hold the drivers window switch when it reaches top or bottom for too long it turns off the one touch lift/drop,
You have to hold switch on at top of its travel for 2-3 seconds so it does it again.
3. First time I used it on a frosty morning a warning message came up” safety cameras inoperative due to low temperature … care needed”.
anybody else had the issues or would like to give their thoughts?

I can address 3. I have had that on a number of other Mazdas I own. Quite often it simply means ice has formed over the sensor or if it is the windscreen, have you scrapped it completely- or used the handy app to warm it completely before you get in - ahhhh the things we never knew we needed 😂

1 I have never had that on a single car I have owned including 6 other mazdas (actually it might be seven)

2 Yep you are using the reset feature for the windows. Most commonly this will reset if all four (or in the case of mx 30 - two)windows go down and stay down. Think it is a blip in the electronics- that happened to me in a CX5 and a 6. Simple solution, stop holding it up for so long.

1. Have not used so much fluid yet...
2. Not managed to do this, even when the window was frozen last week in -15C
3. Happened every day, learned to scrape away the ice outside the inside mirror

I have ran out of washer water and yes no indication I was getting low so next time I have a service do I tell them and can they rectify it in an softwear update

Just to add my comments:
1. I believe washer warning lights were more common on cars with xenon lights, but I can't find anything in the manual for the MX-30 to say that it has them. I was a bit surprised that the MX-30 didn't have them, as the majority of my cars before have.
2. This is standard function on a lot of cars
3. I've had the warnings and the message should go once the cameras have defrosted

I had a frosty morning & as well as your probs except for washer level when I put my fingers in the door handle the door opened but the door mirrors stayed where they were. Froze, a bit worrying as I was not sure if this would cause damage. Anyway eventually they opened with no apparent damage. Is it possible to turn off folding option in winter months?

Definitely, Mazda folding mirrors have a bad reputation for failing before and after warranty period. I tend to wd40 them during the winter to help ease their folding.

I personally used Vaseline n the mirror joint, seemed ok. Will be cleaning it off as the weather gets warmer. I believe glycerin is also good. I’ve also used a thick cloth wrapped around the joint.

The bottom line us we should not have to do anything, especially if it is Mazda serviced. However Mazda autofolding mirrors have a bad failure reputation. Mostly internal with the plastic/nylon parts so perhaps exterior lube makes no odds as its the internals that go wrong? I leave that one open for debate. I have had two mirror repairs done on one cx5 and one on another within two years of ownership. No mention in the handbook about mirror lubrication so why should we have to do anything!
Winter freezing is a separate issue. Either leave them open by turning autofold off or, as I do, a little defrost spray. I have also used wd40 during the winter months to drive moisture out. Who knows if that is more of a hindrance than a help....

Each to their own I suppose.. 🤯

Please don’t use WD-40 as a lubricant! While it does have a very temporary lubricating effect, it quickly evaporates.

It will washout any organic (oil based) lubricants/greases that have previously been used. For plastic joints a Silicone grease or graphite lubricant is best.
