Hey guys and gals. Potential new member. Considering buying a 2015-2016 Mazda 3 GT but concerned about the numerous ones being sold with dealership claims on the battery/charging system issues in the Carfax reports. Everything seems to be pointed to the I-ELOOP system causing it. Can anyone shed some light on this issue on the 3s? Certainly don't want to buy one and have an electrical nightmare on my hands. Thanks for any insight.

Get one with a manual transmission; no I-ELOOP.

Thanks for the suggestion SHIPO! Any idea off hand if the I-LOOP system only comes on the Automatics?
