    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...

  6. 2nd gear grind 6sp M/T

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So my 2013 skyactiv 6spd I feel like is grinding from 1st to 2nd. Not really a long dramatic grind but a quick grunt or maybe I'm just feeling it. I have yet to drive aggressively so I don't think that is the problem but when I shift ultra slow it feels a bit smoother. Anyone have the same...
