    Very happy to be a Mazda 3 turbo owner. I am coming from a 2005 IS300 5 spd. Loving the red interior and all the electronics. Already bought a dongle to add wireless CarPlay and it’s working great so far. One quirk I am not a fan of is the radio controls. It’s so complicated to change the...

    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...

    Hello all, I wanted to come back and give an update because there are people that still comment on the original post. First, I wanted to thank the very few people that showed some sort of sympathy towards the situation. Your good people. Secondly, for everyone else who has some type of snide...

    I am coming off a lease (AWD Subaru Legacy) and will be buying/leasing my next car by the end of August. The current contenders are a preferred trim automatic FWD Mazda3 hatch or a preferred trim AWD sedan (not a bad second choice). So that brings in the debate, a FWD hatch is about the same...

    Greetings and salutations. I am a new member nad have recently purchased a 2019 AWD Mazda 3 Five Door in Soul Red Crystal Metallic. This new 3 is a replacement for my 2005 Five door. I like the new one a lot better and hope it lasts at least as long as the old one.

    For someone living in Los Angeles and who has never driven his 11 year old vehicle in snow, is it better to just stick with FWD or would it be better to consider the AWD? My commute to work is 42 miles round trip and highway. Felt it would be better to stick with FWD. I would like your thoughts?

    I decided to powder coat a set of 19” Mazda6 wheels in gloss black and mount them along with 5m front and 10mm rear spacers. Lowering kit goes on next week.

    Check out the 19” Mazda6 wheels I had powder coated gloss black and installed on my Polymetal/Red AWD hatch. I also purchased 5mm front and 10mm rear spacers for it. I decided to go with 225/40/19 Pirelli Cinturato Strada Sport All Season tires and I have one of the first lowering kits available...

    7.0 0-60 for the FWD and 7.2 for the AWD. They still called out the 2.5 though. Still looks like a car of the year contender. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a27073458/2019-mazda-3-awd-hatchback-by-the-numbers/

    Hello all, So something I've been thinking about as a dream project car would be a big turbo Mazda 3 with all wheel drive. I do realize that doing a conversion of that magnitude would be a massive project, but hear me out for a second here. I was researching the engine platform of first...

    I've gathered some information from JDM Axela 22XD 4WD 6MT, USDM Mazda CX-3 AWD 6AT, JDM Mazda CX-3 4WD 6MT, and USDM Mazda CX-5 AWD 6AT. I came to conclusion that I can use JDM Axela 22XD 4WD 6MT Transmission, attached transfer case, and fuel tank; USDM CX-5 AWD 6AT drive shaft, hanger mount...

    I saw in a posting on a 3rd Gen Mazda 3 Facebook Page that it may (With work) be possible to take the AWD system from a CX-3 and slap it on ours. They used the term "Bolt on" but i feel like thats loosely used. Is there any truth to this? I know this has been the case with other car...
