I test drove a Mazda 3 and the only good thing about the car was driving, everything else was subpar, especially sound insolation and paper thin body panels. G120 Petrol is inferior to 1.4T and was a disappointment. Would never pick Mazda 3 over Focus or Astra.

I previously had a 2014 Mazda 3 with front and rear parking sensors which worked perfectly well for parking - without the need for this idiotic autonomous park assist nonsense. Far superior car to the Astra, by the way, in every respect.
Hi

That's nice to know as I am considering one as my next car when the finance is finished on the Astra.

Cheers

Mine's a 2017 model, I can switch them of with the button in the centre, but they do come back on as soon as the ignition is cycled. Does get very annoying

Can't you just disable parking assist via the display completely under driver assist category.

Hi

If I switch them off with the button in front of the gear stick they automatically come back on when I slow to a stop at for example a junction. They don't ever stay permanently switched off.

Ok, hadn't noticed that, thought it was for the ignition cycle. Does get very annoying at times. I noticed I'd started to "tune out" and ignore it, but that's not a good thing when I'm actually parking

I find mine more or less ok. Don't like the fact they go off when pedestrians pass near, but apart from that I've never had to switch them off.
