  2. Hard to shift into and out of 2nd, 4th, and reverse

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Sorry if this specific issue has already been asked and resolved. I searched everywhere and couldn't find an answer. I recently picked up a 2008 Mazda 3 S. It's my first manual car so I don't really know what's normal or not. Anyway, the gear shifter distinctively clicks into and out of 1st...

    Hi everyone. Just joined the forums since I purchased a used 2014 Mazda 3 i Touring 5-door in Soul Red Metallic. This Mazda3 is replacing my previous utility/hauling/winter car (an '02 Subaru Forester), which will be used when my 2008 MX-5 isn't practical. When it came time to replace the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. My Mazda 3 today got stuck in 4th gear. The shifter is loose and if I turn on the car, the car immediately wants to move forward. The car only has 13K miles and I've had it for about 6 months (I commute alot). Anyone have any ideas as to what it is, and do you...
  12. 4th Mazda and 2nd Mazda3 (17 2.5L GT HB 6sp)

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    We just picked up a gray 2017 Mazda3 2.5L GT manual with the Premium Package. Big upgrade from our previous 2011 2.5L S HB. So far, we're impressed with the improvements, except the rear hatch wing. :) Haven't posted hardly at all since we bought the 2011. Other Mazdas were a 99 Miata PEP, 01...

    Just saw this in the latest MT at the doctor's office so figured I'd pass along. Granted it's neither an "s" nor a 2017 but that's still a big drop. Discuss. The Big Test: 2016/2017 Compact Sedans - Motor Trend And here's the 3 only review for reference...
  14. Car vibrates when auto shifting from 4th to 5th gear

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hello all, Was hoping to tap into the community knowledge... My Mazda3 with automatic transmission, started vibrating when auto shifting from 4th to 5th gear (as seen on the dashboard). If you've ever driven stick-shift, vibration (stuttering, jerkiness) feels identical to the one one would...

  16. Question for Manual Owners: 4th gear shifter vibration

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, jumped on the search function and couldn't get anything about vibrations regarding the shifter so I figured I'd ask. For those of you with the 6-speed manual: During my test drive yesterday, I noticed that there was a noticeable vibration that came through the shifter while I was in...

  18. Trouble getting into 4th gear after start

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Got a new '14 iGT hatch with manual this weekend. I've noticed a pattern where when I start driving my car, the very first time I try shifting into 4th gear, it doesn't slip in cleanly. There's some resistance which requires a little extra force, or maybe waiting a second for the RPMs to drop...

    Hey guys, I've had my '14 M3 GS for a couple weeks now and I've been having a hard time getting it to go smoothly from third to fourth gear. I noticed this on my test drive as well (bought the one I drove) and at first I thought it was just me. Before this car I hadn't driven standard in about a...
