  1. Gear Shift vibration in 6th gear (Manual Transmission)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I posted this question a while ago but wanted to post it again because my car is being looked at right now by Mazda. I have a new (few months old) Mazda 3 GTs hatch and have a strange vibration in the gear shift (Manual) between 60-70mph. I can feel the vibration and also hear it...noise is not...
  2. Stick shift vibration in 6th gear

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a new (few months old) Mada 3 s hatch and have a strange vibration in the gear shift between 60-70mph. I can feel the vibration and also hear it...noise is not super loud, but it is driving me nuts. I took it to dealer and they said that is normal. I can't fathom that it is normal. Anyone...
  3. Maximum RPM's in 6th Gear

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Just wondering about my 6 speed manual 2.5. In 6th gear I am at 2000 rpm's at 55mph. So I would assume I would be going 110mph at 4000 rpm's. and 138 at 5000 rpm's. Question is where will the tach top out at in 6th gear. Would it ever get to 5000 rpm's?
  4. Car jerks when coasting to a stop in 6th gear?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just bought a 2013 mazda 3 I touring hatch with 6 spd trans. I found that when I'm coasting from normal speed to like 10-20mph, in 6th gear, around 1k rpm, the car would jerk/vibrate once, then continue to slow down normally. Like somebody hit the brake for a split of second..Anybody has a...
  5. Why do are cars always grind with a 5K+ shift from 2nd into 5th or 6th?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Has anyone figured this out? I couldn't figure it out at first when I got the grind until recently. I have a fast off ramp that I end up in 2nd and then at speed by the time I merge so I just go 5th / 6th. Any other car I have had there (a 1996 Saturn SC2, a 1998 240SX SE, a 2006 BMW M3 ZCP)...
  6. OK to skip from 4th to 6th?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    When driving I started skipping from 4th to 6th at any speed as long as I know I'll be going the same speed for a while. For example I do it on 35-40MPH roads at 6th gear (overdrive?). I'm new to manual so I'm not sure if it can hurt the transmission and I keep reading conflicting opinions...

  9. Short 5th and 6th gears......

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Seriously. Why is the 5th gear manual tranny geared (including final drive ratio effect) so much shorter than the 5th gear in the automatic? Especially 6th gear? I'm discovering this is not just a Mazda phenomenon, but several manufacturers of cosnudmer sedans have short top gears with the...
