  1. Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    I am selling my Borla exhaust from a 2016 Mazda3. It sounds really nice. It's not too loud, but you can definitely hear the engine compared to the stock muffler. I recently sold the car so I don't need this anymore. Exhaust was on the car for only ~7k miles. It was on a 2.5L engine Mazda3, but...

    Hello from KC! Currently looking pretty hard at the 5-door Mazda 3. (Touring 2.5 with manual, soul red) Registered to get as much intel as possible before making a final decision. After some initial research, I did a test drive last night and got an offer from the dealer. Waiting to hear back...

    I started having issues with the AC not cooling at a stop, and then discovered that the fan does not come on with temp either. I have seen posts for other model years talking about bad FCM, and bad ground wire. How do I test the fan control module to see if it is putting the proper voltage on...

    Started last night. When I stop the car, park it and turn it off all the sudden I can hear the mechanism in the hatch latch just going nuts without me near it. Keeps me from being able to lock the car. Any ideas?

    Does anyone know what the OEM alignment specs are for a 2011 5door 2.5L? Just upgraded from 17x7 rims to 18x8 rims on 225/40/18. Will be getting rear adjustable camber arms soon. TIA
  7. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    2010 5-door 2.5 Has a very noticeable rattle in the back of the car hitting bumps or even mildly uneven pavement. Sounds like exhaust shield but looking there is an acre of it back there. Any common spots to look?

    Hey everyone! Picked this up last month for a daily/road rally car. Already took it on 2 road rallies in the same day 120 miles apart and have plans for a few more in the coming months.

    I have had the car for 3 months, and I recently folded down the back seats to put in some golf clubs, and driving home late in the dark, I noticed in the rear-view mirror that the trunk light (it's on the drivers side) was on. It has a 2-position switch, off and auto, where auto is supposed to...

    Hey guys just got my springs in the mail, ($209 shipped from tirerack) and I just noticed they are for the 5 door not the 4 door. And I'm wondering if they'll fit or if I should return. I think I've seen a smilliar question asked on here before, but I searched and couldn't find it. I would...

  13. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I had a rare commute today where I actually saw two other '14s. The first was a straightforward iTouring (or maybe stripped iGT?) sedan, but the other was confusing: - It was a 5-door so it couldn't be a an i-SV, those are sedan only. - It had 16" wheels and what appeared to have plastic...

    Recently put Konis on my car so I have the OEM front and rear shocks/struts. Off of a 2010 3 5 door GT. They have 48,000 miles on them. The rears are a little bumpy on the road but not sagging at all. Fronts felt fine to me. I have owned the car since 24,000 miles and never load it down. Also...

    Hello All, I bought my car for Christmas. I bought a base model Skyactiv with the 6-speed transmission. I'm looking to get better MPG than the 38mpg I'm getting now. I baby her and drive lots of Hwy. I wish there was more on that on the forums but have yet to find those types of threads. I have...
