Question Question about Mazda 3 made in Mexico

Hi,

I am going to be purchasing a new 2015 Mazda3 soon in South California.
Looking at inventory of most dealers, it appears more and more mazda3's are pouring-in from Mexico compared to Japan (VIN# starting with 'J' is for Japan, starting with '3' is for Mexico). Only very few are left which are from Japan.

Should I be any concerned with getting a Mazda3 manufactured in Mexico?


Thank you.

Nope.... At least no reason anyone knows of yet....
Interestingly enough, Japanese manufactured 3s are having rust issues at trunk welds but Mexico 3s aren't

I wouldn't worry about it too much.... I felt the same but the motor and transmission are made in Japan and the factory in Mexico is brand new ......NO WORRIES. ASSBAD
