  3. Mexico or Japan Built?! I'm so confused!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've searched a ton to figure out whether my car was built in Mexico or Japan. I've had people tell me "look for a certain code on the door jamb" and "check the VIN" but I don't seem to have a VIN decoder handy for my car. Can someone just end this debacle and spoon feed me the way to figure...
  4. Types of Break Pads on Mexico Built 2015 Model

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I was planning on changing my own break pads as they are apparently worn. I looked around the forum and found out that the rear pads are the QC1679, so my question is which pads are for the front tires? and which break pads do you guys recommend in general (front and rear). Cheers.

  6. Mexico built Brake pad availability?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I have a 2014 Mazda 3i touring 5 door 6MT. I bought the car used and had some brake shudder when I bought it so I knew the rotors were in bad shape, I ignored it for a few months as I didn't have the money at the time (the jeep needed it more). My first thought was to get the EBC greenstuff pads...
  7. Early '14/'15 Japanese built 3's: TSB 06-001/15 for front end clunk when turning left

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Recalls / TSB / SSB
    This week my wife took her '14 3i Touring into the dealer for a clunk we've noticed on it for the past couple of months. It seemed to come from the driver's side when turning left, and was worse when going over bumps. I jacked it up and didn't see or feel anything loose so we didn't rush to...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I put down a deposit at my local dealer yesterday for a 2015 Mazda3 S Grand Touring w/ 6-speed manual. My dealer has a list of their first batch of 2015s that they expect to receive complete with VINs for each vehicle. My dealer told me the car is already on the boat and should arrive early...
