    $1,300 Repair on a 2010 Mazda3

    For more than a month now, the ABS and Traction Control lights have been coming on and off on my 2010 Mazda3 hatch. They might stay off for a week or so but then they will come back on again for several days. The car has just under 60k and is in very good condition.

    Today, I had the dealership check it out and they say it needs to have the ABS control unit replaced, which will cost $1,300.

    Have any other Mazda3 owners encountered anything like this?

    Right now I'm just driving it knowing that I don't have ABS or traction control, but I'm not sure what to do next. $1,300 is a lot for a car that's under 60k miles....

    You should check other sites and see if it's the actual mechanism failing or if it's a.. Software problem. If it's failing due to normal usage and age then you'll have to shell out the 1300. If it's a common failure for many people, due to defective assembly, or something Mazda did/didnt do, you may be able to the cost reduced or waived. See if there are any recalls from 2010.

    My EBCM in my 01 Corvette failed, back in 2010. I removed it and sent it to absfixer.com
    They repaired it for $150. The dealership would've charged me $1200.
