Question about 2004 Mazda 3
My mazda 3 has a vibration between 0-50 km/h then seems to go away . its not my tyres or engine mounts any ideas what it could be?
I have been searching for a possible culprit on this and found the the WHEEL BEARING (inside the wheel hub assembly if I'm not mistaken) could be at fault. At low speeds you will feel/hear a sounds that seems to me coming from your tires (as if you had a flat, but you really don't) and it can cause vibration at higher speeds.

I have the exact problem in my wifes 07 mazda3 automatic 2.3s i noticed it happens mainly slow cruiseing speeds when your around 1500rpms in 5th gear then sometimes it will down shift and be fine. its not the mounts i inspected every one very closley that bulleton is only for the speed engines. it started after i got the trans service done that i paid 250 for and they dont even change the filter. they reflashed the ecm and tcm balanced the wheels and inspected all hubs and exhaust and steering nothing. my gues is a torque convertor lock up is not in sync with the shift points so it bogs the engine down and almost stall. like in a manual car when you almost stall it. if anyone has any questions on what i have inspected or has any updates on how to fix the problem email me at email@example.com this has been going on for 40000 miles and i only have 2000 left til im out of warranty

My 08 mazda 3 has the same problem. So far they have replaced the the Tires , replaced the front brakes and the right front axle. I have done some research and there is a bulletin from mazda that says that this problem can be caused by faulty motor mounts.I have an appointment to have these checked I will let you know how it turns out.
