    So I own a 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv with the 6AT. A recent issue it's developed is that when I put it into the manual shift mode (mainly to listen to my exhaust through town), is that it doesn't like to shift up a gear. It shifts down fine, and I've made sure that I have plenty of RPMs to play with...

    Hi ! I am getting crazy low fuel consumption on my new Mazda 3 Skyactiv X 2L AWD Automatic. The car has around 4000km, I bought it yesterday. Mazda says the car should get, on average, 6.9l/100km (34MPG). On the highway, I get between 4.1 and 4.5l/100km (around 57MPGs) and I get between 4.9 and...

    Hey guys, I’ve had this issue with my 2010 Mazda 3 2.0L (165000 kms) for the past year or so and I still have yet to figure out what the problem is. It’s actually driving me insane. When the car is in drive the “D” indicator light in the cluster will flicker on and off sporadically, and...

    Is anybody getting a warning about the automatic lighting system malfunctioning? Seems to only happen when the car has been sitting in the heat. After about 5 minutes of driving it clears itself.

    I just did an ATF drain and fill on my 2016 Mazda 3 with the 2.0L + automatic. After letting it drain, I put back in roughly 3.5 quarts. After a 20 minute drive and the fluid at operating temp, I quickly checked the dipstick and it seems to be about 1/8" over the "hot" fill line. Will I be...

    Hi, My 2005 Mazda 3 won't go into drive until the engine warms up. I live in Puerto Rico so ' cold' is relative :) Typically it may take a few minutes to warm up enough but since starting a night job it takes forever late at night when its actually cool outside. It goes into reverse just fine...

    I did a search on this before posting and couldn't find anything like this. We all know that manuals are dying a slow death but Mazda continues to make them available in most of their cars. The fact that I could get the Grand Touring with a stick was a huge factor in pushing me into Mazda and...

    Hey Guys! So this is my first post and it's on something that I've wanted to try for awhile but never really knew how to do it. So I own a 2015 Mazda 3 Sport GS with an automatic transmission. Personally I hate the feeling of the automatic shift knob in my hand and want to switch it up. I used...

    Now that I have had my intake for a couple days I thought it would be nice to give a quick review first on the pros and cons of it, along with extensive diving into the specific parts most of us care about. With pictures too of course! So without further ado, here we go: Pros: Style! Noise...
