  5. Canadian and US M3 owners: Convex Mirror for Driver Side

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi guys Here in Australia, our SP25GT Mazda comes with left (passenger side) convex mirror and right normal mirror (driver side).

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    So a few weeks ago I got t-boned in my 2002 Jeep Wrangler; she hit me right between the drivers side front wheel and my door. Was that ever a surreal experience. Feeling much better now but for a couple weeks I was very sore. This all leads to me and my Girlfriend heading out to find a new...
  9. Is there a TPMS on Canadian models??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Is there a Tire Pressure Monitoring System in the Canadian models? Manual says there is a TPMS reset button. My GS model does not have that button. Mazda.com lists the TPMS on the basic model Mazda.ca does not say anything about it. Why would they remove this feature??

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Looking for some good advice from my American friends south of the border here. My 10 month old 2012 Mazda 3 Sport got into a spot of bother after a reversing issue and the long story short, the rear bumper is cracked right down the middle, more or less over the rear plate. Own fault error so...
