  1. 2016 3 with only 11,000 miles?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Have an appt this weekend @ a Hyundai/Mazda dealer to look at a 1 owner 2016 Mazda 3 Grand Touring with only 11,000 miles. Hopefully learn some owner details when I see the car, but I'm concerned so few miles in 3+ years. Anything in particular to look out for? Thank you in advance.
  2. 1,000 Mile Review - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hello Everybody, Just hit 1,000 miles in my 2019 hatchback and that means it's time for a review. First we will start off with the good. -I am averaging about 28.5 MPG with mostly highway driving with the a/c on most of the time. I suspect the mileage will get even better as the engine...

  4. Brake squeak at 30,000 miles?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I have a 2015 3sGT (2.5L manual trans) hatch. I'm the original owner, I'm at 29,600 miles, and I drive pretty gently. Two days ago I noticed a squeak/scrape from my driver's side rear brakes. Does 30-thousand miles sound about right for this car for needing brake replacement? Or is it likely...

  6. Change oil every 10,000 miles max

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just a note. Manual says no matter what, max oil change interval is 10,000. My indicator was at 20% after 11,500 when I changed it. I’m sure it doesn’t matter, but I thought the indicator would let me know when to change the oil. It doesn’t keep the 10,000 max in mind. :frown2:

    Hey all, I just purchased 2 new tires after getting a pretty good size nail in one of the stock tires. When I was at the shop, they showed me my rear tires were below 2/32 of an inch.
