    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I recently purchased a 2014 iSV which has a very low coolant level and I would like to make sure the system is in good shape. The previous owner didn't disclose the last time the fluids were checked or what kind of coolant was last used, but it looks to be an emerald green. I'm thinking of just...

    I have a 15 Mazda 3 s GT. It has SCBS and MRCC but not option in the safety menu for SBS. Is there just an update I could do to the car. Came from a BMW using its coding software. I didn’t know if Mazda has software like that.

    Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback! The previous owner said (that her son said...) that it is possible to add an AUX port to the OEM stereo, mounting it inside the glove box. Is that really a possibility? Or should I just think about upgrading to a newer head unit with Bluetooth, AUX and...

  7. Add waypoint to route?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a 2018 3 GT hatch. Is there any way to add waypoints to a nav route? The routes Mazda Connect chooses can be frustratingly braindead, e.g., adding 30 minutes to a 2.5 hour trip due to stupid routing, with no apparent way to correct the mistakes. Google Maps got the same trip 100% perfect...

  11. Add on Premium Package components?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I recently got a new 2017 GT to replace a 2014 iGT that was in a wreck. I opted to not get the Premium package because I have a manual transmission (and you don't get a discount since you don't need paddle shifters), and I personally never used the navigation system in my 2014. However, some...
