    Just curious, how many of you drive more in manual mode, shifting shifter or paddles more than leaving in auto? Mine is Touring with no paddles but honestly with Borla s Exhaust I enjoy driving my car much more in manual mode shifting when I feel and only sometimes do I regret not buying...

Additionally, the touch screen is now enabled in android auto, but it is VERY slow...
  6. Update On Auto Light Malfunction

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I remember seeing a few people mention the auto light system malfunction on hot days in their 2019s...Happened to me today. Spoke with Mazda and their response is that "Japan" is aware of it and do not have a fix but are working on it. His guess is that the sensor gets too hot and gives the...

I simply set it to 63 degrees then press auto and put both the driver and passenger side in 'Sync'. The interior cabin hits...
  13. Android Auto doesn't resume music playback after call

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Has anyone else encountered this? After completing a phone call, Android Auto does not automatically resume playback. In some cases it turns on the FM radio instead of resuming the song I was listening to. I have a Hyundai with AA and this doesn't happen there, so I'm pretty sure it's an issue...

    My 2015 S Touring has about 70k miles. Does the transmission fluid need changed? My research says skyactiv vehicles do not need changing. Just wanted to confirm my vehicle is a skyactiv one. Besides oil changes and air filters, what other regular maintenance should I be doing?

    I’ve got a Mazda 3 self nav (jan 2016). I have managed to get the auto door mirrors to open when I turn the ignition on, but when I get out the car and lock the doors they don’t close, am I doing something wrong ?
