    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Dear friends, I have been driving my 3 for almost 3 years now, and after an extended experience, I finally decided that some suspension upgrade might be needed. I am running 225/50r17 Michelin on 17x7 KOSEI rims, so the OD of the wheel is a tad larger than the original 205/60r16. Here are some...

  5. 6MT Touring ?s

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Is it possible to buy a MT touring without a sunroof? Are the upgrades from the Sport trim (LEDs, 2.5L, and the safety stuff) worth taking the sunroof I don't want? Looking to replace a ZQ8 S10 (lowered, sport suspension) as my daily, so I just want better mpg and still fun to drive. I am...
  6. 2015 6MT popping out of 5th

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Bought a 2015 3 i Sport last month, 60k on the clock. On the way home from from the Toyota dealer where I bought it, it popped out of 5th gear. This happens nearly every time I drive it now if I linger in 5th, but not every time. I've taken it to the Mazda dealer twice. They haven't been able to...

    Hello all! I've had my 2014 Mazda 3 since December 2015 when I crashed my Dodge Neon. SUCH AN UPGRADE! I found a good 2.0 Skyactiv 6MT Sedan at a Cadillac dealership for a decent price, and have been DDing it ever since. Only very recently have I started doing my own work on it when I was...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey Guys, I just bought a new 2017 Mazda 3 Touring 2.5 Hatch 6MT in Machine Gray Metallic. Nice to be back in a Mazda again, having previously owned a 2012 Speed 3 (Man i miss that car) However, this little 2.5L engine is a blast. I already made a few mods to it thus far: tow hook front...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi, just picked you my new car this week and after just 4 days with it, I couldn't be happier. I got an amazing deal, and this car is just light years ahead of my Chevy Cruze I had before. Which was such a horrible car, GM ended up buying it back due to lemon law. Anyways back to the Mazda, I've...

  12. 2014 Mazda 3 2.0L 6MT whine noise

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm experiencing a whine/whir noise in my car and the dealership said it's just from my winter tires, but i'm fairly certain that's not the case. Can anyone else with a 2014-2017 Mazda 3 6MT let me know if their car exhibits the same noise? If no one else has this problem, i'll try a different...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello! I just picked up 2016 3s GT 6MT last week. Today the dealer added the factory appearance package (pricey but nice) and removed the pin stripe for me so i decided it was time to post an intro. I come from a 2003 Subaru forester that i still own and love. It's pushing 200k and runs like a...
  15. It's finally here!! 15' Sport GT 6MT

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Could not wait any longer! Took delivery of my 2015 Sport GT in Soul Red with a 6 speed manual on Friday and it's been well worth the wait! Was originally getting a white one but for some stupid reason it was over 3 weeks past its delivery date so.. This red one with the exact same spec as the...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi all, I moved to the phoenix area in july. Drove my 2001 Subaru out here. I love my subie, I truly do, but it's about time to retire the old battle wagon. She's got 212K, A/C that is akin to a chilled asthmatic mouse coughing on you (seriously the blower fan can overpower the level of...

  18. Need to hear from 2.0L 6MT Hatch owners.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi Guys, I used to have 2006 Mazda 3 Sedan sGT, and I absolutely loved that car. I believe even to this day that car had the best interior of any car I have ever sat in. The gauges the layout the build. Then I stepped into 2012 TSX SE 6MT and I love it, but it is lacking in tech, and MPG in...
  19. Clutch Judder @82k 2.5 6MT

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    We just bought this car from Carmax, don't know the history. Appears bone stock. Rough clutch engagement has been noted, kind of off/on, and not easy to modulate via clutch pedal/throttle. No slipping noted, though. Engages rather high up but has the required free play in the pedal. Did...
  20. 6MT "decides" to accelerate when compression braking...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So I've got a 2012 Mazda3 Skyactiv 6MT with about 15k miles on it. During the course of our time together I have noticed something slightly distressing - when downshifting into 2nd, the engine rev's sometimes will jump unnaturally. I can attempt to speculate about how maybe the ECU has...
