  1. Oscillating Vibration

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Assuming they know what to look for its not hard to find. They would have to be looking for it though. Does the sound change with speed? When was the last time the brakes were serviced?
  2. 18" wheels best offset

  3. Heated Steering Wheel and Homelink Missing?

    Yeah, Mazda has never been really good at corporate decisions regarding marketing what to who......
  4. Tire related...

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    That seems to say that Toyo sells cheap tires for OEM use. People buying replacements probably would not buy them unless they are OCD about using what the manufacturer put on the car originally. For the most part though Mazda OEM tires are low end crap designed for lowest rolling resistance...
  5. 2007 Mazda 3 Bad Startup Noise

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Bad starter. Bendix isn't retracting the drive gear right away. Probably need a new starter.
  6. Mazda 3 Notchy/Squeaky Gearbox

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Its also possible that the dealer used the wrong formulation. Using a GL-5 spec oil instead of a GL-4 will do exactly what you describe. Another thing to look at is the shift cables. Sometimes they can stretch or get out of adjustment and need to be replaced.
  7. GRP Adjustable End Links

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Nothing wrong with the GRP links. I've installed a few sets and never had a problem. If they are damaged from improper installation, the problem is with the installer, not the part.
  8. AWD- Should I Get It?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    If you are from central NE, and may possibly be driving a lot in the winter snow, AWD and a good set of studded tires sure won't hurt. Keep in mind that this car is not AWD all the time, its FWD most of the time and the rear wheels only get power when needed. FWD with good snow tires will only...

    What don't you understand here? Unless you provide a link to whatever it is you are going on about nobody can do anything..............
  10. Pothole Bent Rim

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    You'll want to have the tire checked also. There may be no visible damage from the exterior, but an impact like that can cause all sorts of problems down the road. Lots of times you can see more by looking at the inside of the tire.

    Did you report a post? I don't recall seeing anything about removing a specific post .... Maybe if you would actually point someone to the post you are referring to so it can be reviewed instead of saying "a post"?
  12. OEM vs Aftermarket Air Intakes?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    For the 2.0, no, the OEM intake seems to be sized properly. Panel filters won't make a difference, an SRI by itself will be louder but thats about it. Again, the design of the intake is the biggest factor.
  13. Pothole Bent Rim

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Make sure they check the rim for out of round, run out etc also. If the rim isn't trued up it will never balance right and you'll have a perpetual vibration.

  15. Mazda 3 2017 front sway bar end link

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    https://www.tascaparts.com/auto-parts/2016/mazda/3/s-touring-trim/2-5l-l4-gas-engine/front-suspension-cat/stabilizer-bar-and-components-scat Its a damper of sorts. Also acts as a stop to keep the steering from turning too far.
  16. OEM vs Aftermarket Air Intakes?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    You won't see any difference in air flow. Most any filter will be able to pass much more airflow than the engine can draw in. Any changes are due to intake design. The OEM parts are slightly restrictive and its been shown several times in the past that you can get a few peak hp on the 2.5 by...
  17. OEM vs Aftermarket Air Intakes?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Yeah, its a short ram intake, not a lot of cold air involved actually unless you make provision for a remote fresh air feed. Mostly they are ok at speed but temps tend to spike quickly when stopped or moving slowly.
  18. Mazda 3: Undercarriage condition...rust

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Looks about what you would expect from an 8 year old car from a state that uses salt on its roads. I doubt its anything to worry about.
  19. 16" wheels on a new 2019 hatch AWD

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Why? Since the 205/60/16 tires are the same size as the 215/45/18 tires there will be no difference......
