What up everyone-
I just bought a 2005 3s hatchback w/ only 21k miles on it, it seemed like a really good deal and a really nice car as well. Three days later the CEL light came on. I noticed that the gas cap is very loose; it clicks on turning right as it should, but no matter how many times it clicks, it seems like just a touch opens it all they way unlike any other car I have ever experienced. Is this similar to the problem in this thread? I am taking the car to a mazda dealer in a few days and hopefully they can fix the problem under warranty, if not its going to be a big problem for me. Does anyone know if this is a common issue in these cars and might it be indicative of larger problems?
Any help is greatly appreciated; if I end up keeping the car I'm going to be spending a lot of time on this site!
