  1. '18 GT Headlight Behavior

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Has anyone noticed that even if the light stalk is set to the parking lights, the headlights come on automatically when shifting into drive? Not sure if this is the same on the 2017, but definitely happens in the '18. I've disabled the Coming Home and Leaving Home options in infotainment. I'd...
  2. Strange Wiper Blade Behavior

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    The rain is falling in Portland, and I'm using my wipers from time to time again. My Safelite windshield was installed 3 or 4 months ago; at that time I applied Aquapel (product similar to RainX) on the glass, the few times I used the original wipers there were no problems. I installed a set of...
  3. Sirius XM Strange Behavior

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey everyone! First post! I just purchased my first Mazda a few weeks ago (2014 Mazda 3 ST) and I absolutely love it except for a strange issue with Sirius XM. I was able to select "XM" from the menu no problem (so I know it has the hardware) and it showed Ch. 0 just fine (with the Radio ID)...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

When I turned it off again, the trip mileage app (which I show at the end of every trip) showed 0 mpg. I think what happened is that the car was...

    Mazda 3 2015, weird air conditioning behavior. When I set airflow mode to dashboard only I get air blowing from dashboard + floor. When I set airflow mode to dashboard + floor I get air blowing from dashboard only. Any idea what would be the problem? Sorry if this sounds so vague but I'm...
  6. Normal throttle behavior?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have noticed that when cruising on the highway if I put the transmission into manual mode and am in 6th (or even 5th) and put the gas pedal to the floor the car basically does nothing acceleration-wise. If I hit the kick down switch of course it will downshift but just putting the pedal down a...
  7. Normal behavior or motor mounts problem? (or another problem?)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi, I'm driving the 2014 mazda 3 6AT for about 2 months now. For the last 3-4 weeks I'm noticing the following: (maybe they were there before, I'm not sure...) 1. The car is jerky when leaving the throttle in low speeds. It's especially noticeable in traffic jams when there's a lot of stops and...
