    Idk if this has been brought up before.. But, when I have the A/C on with my 2010 Mazda 3 2.0 it seems to struggle pretty badly. Performance is hindered and the engine just feels like there is no power sometimes lol. It's like the A/C is leeching the engine.. Sometimes when I start off from a...

    Hello, this is my first post. I purchased my car on Mar 2010, a 2010 mazda 3. very happy with it, zero problem so far. Until last weekend, i found out my A/C does not blow cool air at all, so I decide to let the dealer take a look today. First, they told me that will be $145 to find what the...

    So I took my 2010 Mazda 3 (6mt hatch) purchased 12/19/2009 (now has 34k miles) for service like a week ago due to a noise I was hearing when I started my car, when I went to move and/or switch gears and if the car surged while in 1st or 2nd. One of the noises they told me was wheel hop (which I...

    Hi All, I have a 2010 Mazda 3, and have been perfectly happy with it until just recently. When I use the A/C, it works fine, but the car runs like !*?%. Huge loss in power and chugs along. I have had it to the dealer once, and they said "It must have been real hot that day, and the car has...

    Hello all. This is my first post here, but I used this site extensively when researching my Mazda 3 purchase, and I'm hoping some of you amazingly knowledgeable people can help me out. I purchased my 2010 Mazda 3 S GT around the middle of May, and for the first month and half the A/C was...

    It's finally getting warm in LA this week, and I just started using my A/C and am kinda underwhelmed by it's performance. Even on the "max a/c" setting, the air coming out is definitely cool, but it's for sure not the blast of cold air that was coming out of my '04 civic. Is anyone else...

    Just wondering if everyone else's car basically gets it's balls cut off when you turn your A/C on. I have the S Sport Hatch and sometimes it seems like it should have a little more power when the A/C is on.

    Just wondering for those who have Sirius, is there a way to have the information in that box scroll when the title is too long?

    I just wanted to see if anybody else had this problem. Whenever the compressor kicks on for the first time after my car has been sitting around for a long time (usually overnight), it will make a loud grinding noise for about half a second. If I let the car warm up before I turn on the...
