    I am surprised I haven't heard about this until now, even in these forums. This came to my attention yesterday because a friend's car was broken into and valuables stolen. There was no sign of forced entry. The cops told him that the most likely scenario is a cheap fob booster or amplifier that...
  2. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Disclaimer: There are just some observations in my ten months of owning this car (currently at 12k). The ONLY reason I'm putting this out here is because I am curious to see if anyone else has had similar experiences and if there are any solutions people have figured out for these quirks...

    With the known fact that some other manufacturers' direct injection engines suffer from power/economy robbing deposits on the intake valves, I decided to see if the Skyactiv G 2.0L in our Mazda 3's was also prone to this issue. These deposits form from oil vapors vented into the intake by the...
  4. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I just wanted to let everyone know about a bad experience. I bought a set of Matte Black Tenzo R wheels. Well I decided to use some Armor All wheel portectant on them. Bad Idea! For some reason it does not work well with "matte" finishes. I've got the white-ish tint to them now. Acoording to the...

    Well, this is what happens when you have the misfortune not to notice that there is a poorly maintained parking block in front of your MZ3. I was pulling out of my parking space at work the other night, heard a bit of a scrape (as sometimes happens innocently), but it got louder and louder...

    Well, here I am again. More problems for TWM and its flawed design for the 2nd time. To keep this short and sweet, basically, the "short" throw is GONE with their new setup which claims to fix the first ones flaws. Aside from that, now there's a sharp metal edge on the opposite side which now...
  9. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just purchased a 2010 Mazda 3s GT - with the tech. package. The car is a dream to drive. The navigation is a different story. It suffers from two main faults. Simply put, it cannot navigate! It doesn't show you the direct/shortest route. I have been driving this car around and have to depend...
