I have two Mazda’s a CX5 and a Mazda 3, both great cars. The sales team at Steele Mazda were amazing, I cannot say enough positive about them.
However Steele Mazda’s service is not a positive experience. I have enough disputes with them that I have now moved the service of both vehicles to a private company.
The last disagreement was over them unable to remove a nut from the 2017 Mazda 3 so they could do an alignment. In order to remove the nut they would have remove and replace part of the front end to the tune of 8 hundred and some dollars.
My private mechanic did an alignment on the car and there was no nut “frozen”. I let you judge why a small mechanic shop could do what a well equipped Mazda dealership wanted 800 dollars for. My total bill at the other shop, for oil change, change over of seasonal tires and an alignment was 2 hundred dollars.
The CX5 wipers have never cleared snow properly, it is dangerous to drive in the winter storms. Their hi tech shop have never been able to fix that problem either. The latest solution is I go buy winter wipers from another dealer as they do not sell them.
The final complaint is how some of the staff, and I emphasize some staff, which rotate fairly frequently, are allowed to speak to customers. The last time I was in a service advisor told me to go and sit and wait, like I was a child, when my car was not coming out of service. She did not go in to see what was happening. That was when I lost it and I am not proud of that. But I will never ever have a car serviced at Steele Mazda again.
