About Mazda GLC

With the GLC as the acronym for Great Little Car, Mazda GLC was built by a prominent Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer Mazda Motor Corporation, commonly referred to as simply Mazda, as a small compact car between 1977 and 1985. Originally introduced as the successor to the Mazda 1200 in the North American market, GLC also had many other names in different markets, one of which is the Mazda Familia in Japan. However, after being available for about two generations covering nine model years, the production of GLC was ended and the GLC nameplate was tired for the 1986 model year.
The first-generation Mazda GLC (FA4) was produced from 1977 to 1980 and debuted in January 1977 as a 1977 model. It was offered in several body variants, 5-door, 4-seat hatchback; 3-door, 4-seat hatchback; 5-door, 4-seat station wagon; 3-door, 4-door station wagon; and 3-door, 2-seat van with an extended roof profile. During this generation, the GLC was powered by either a 1.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 44 hp and 51 lb-ft of torque or a 1.3 L I4 producing 60-85 ps. And power was sent to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic transmission. The more recent GLC (BD) was introduced in 1980 when the Familiar was in its fourth generation. Back then, it was available as 3-door hatchback, 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback. GLC was also offered in standard, Custom, Custom L, and Sport equipment levels. Back then, GLC got power from a twin-barrel 1.5 L I4 cranking out 68 hp and 1.3 L I4 rated at 67 hp and 70 lb-ft of torque. Power was still sent through a 5-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.

Mazda GLC Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Although being manufactured by the exceptional Japanese automaker who is reputed for its superior build quality, you cannot deny the fact that the current Mazda GLC is over thirty-two years old. In other words, these common problems will appear on the GLC and deserve your attention:
First, needless to think, the engine definitely ranks first among all other problems on Mazda GLC. Considering the fact that the engine failure is often regarded as the omen of the vehicle breaking down, you have every need to learn about these typical symptoms of it provided by experienced GLC drivers. At first, the engine will make some strange sounds such as whining, squealing or rattling to attract your attention; then the engine starts to run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues including hard starting and inability to start. Before the vehicle breaks down completely, it will first experience a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy. Once the Check Engine Light comes on, please inspect the working condition of the GLC spark plug, oxygen sensor, air filter, oil filter, engine control module, valve cover gasket, belt tensioner and fuel pump immediately.
Second, another horrible problem on Mazda GLC is the braking failure, which could bring the occupants into dangers anytime. The working condition often decides the safety level of a ride and you had better get it solved as soon as you can. Professional GLC repairmen warn that if the brakes become noisy, the brake pedal pulsates heavily when being depressed, or the braking fluids leak on the ground, you need to keep alert. Soon, the brakes would respond poorly, the rear brakes get locked up on the wet surface and the parking brake could not hold the car properly. When both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light are activated, then the GLC brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable need a thorough inspection.
