  1. CarPlay sound quality in 2017 3GT - not very good

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just came back from the dealer with Carplay update installed in my 2017 Mazda3GT. Previously, the USB audio sounded very good, better than the Bluetooth feed. After the update, the Bluetooth feed seems to be the same as before, but the USB feed now thru CarPlay sounds much flatter, with a...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello all, I just took delivery of an '18 3 GT with Premium Package. All I can say is what a fun fun car to drive. I've never owned a Mazda before and almost didn't even consider one, until a colleague recommended Mazda to me. Well during my research, I had test driven an 19 Jetta, a 18...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Been searching google looking for answers and thought I would register here and ask. I have a 2010 3GT sedan with oem HID and AFS. Last night while driving, both headlights went out at the same time. No high or low beam. Fogs and blinkers still work. I checked what fuses I could find...
  4. 2012 3GT heated seat issue

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I searched and didn't see anything about this specific issue, but my driver's side heated seat is acting funny. It is a 2012 Mazda3 4-dr GT with the leather heated seats. The control switch has 5 positions, with 1 being low and 5 being hot. Recently the seat started cranking out what feels like...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello all, I have been reading your forum for the past few years and thought I should try to contribute. Last Mazda3 was fantastic (2011 mazda 3 2.5 auto GT), but I fell in love with the new 2014 model. Put my old 19" rims on my new 2014 mazda3 2.5 GT sport and have to say this car handles...

    Hey guys! Just thought I'd finally drop in and say hi as my user CP told me to do so :yes: I actually bought her from the Mazda dealership back around September but haven't had a chance to post anything yet. I testdrove a new speed3 at the same time and loved the turbo but in the end I...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Just bought a new 2011 Grand Touring, Black. Last Mazda was a Miata, loved it but it wouldn't carry much. Worked thru an Integra then Passat wagon - all hatches, all manual trannys. One week into the new 3 and glad I chose it. Only minor mods planned so far, the horn, some interior lighting...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    After many flings with Mustangs (Cobras and GTs) and a serious dance with a 2005 Honda S2000, I'm looking forward to many drives with this Sunlight Silver 2007 Mazdaspeed 3GT I just purchased. Here in Dallas, there are now exactly 0 used Mazdaspeeds to be found on cars.com or autotrader and...
  10. Hey just waiting to upgrade my 2006 3GT

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    New to the forum and thought I'd say hey. I currently have a 2006 Mazda3 GT 4door (Titanium Grey). It's been a great car, but with the new model I don't think I will be able to resist trading it in for a new one - especially now that the 2010 model comes with a 6-speed manual. Once the 2010...
