Pardon the pun, but I'm getting plenty of (test report) mileage out of the orange, spanner-shaped warning light that does/doesn't appear in the instrument panel of the CX-3.

Having showed up when it shouldn't, 6000 miles ahead of the scheduled 12,000-mile service, and then making, the odd, short-lived appearance since, the service light has decided not to appear now that the car has actually passed the 12,000-mile mark.\

As it's due a dealer look over, I shall be taking it to T W White & Sons in Orpington, Kent, who did/didn't cure the problem initially. And I'll be asking when the next service is due, just in case of another orange light no-show.

Mazda CX-3 1.5D 105 SE-L

Mileage 12,286
P11D price £20,940
Forecast/actual cost per mile 45.0p/45.6p
Our average consumption 55.1mpg
Official combined consumption 70.6mpg


  • Fast dealer service to switch off service light
  • Why don't rear seats benefit from warming too?
