    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Mazda maintenance tech liked the corksport catback sound. I know we make these cars our own and not everyone will like the noise but it's satisfying knowing others share opinions.
  2. Comments on i 2.0 vs s 2.5

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    On the face, to me, it seems an obvious choice - I like this car because of the driving qualities, and the 2.5 s seems a no brainer to go along with this ideal. But, I am in the position of wondering if I should suck up just over the limits of my affordability and get the s or save the $ and go...

    Hey all, I got the car from the dealer yesterday. I like it. Lots to learn and get used to! I love the keyless entry system, very convenient. The GPS system looks good, but it can't compete with Waze's live traffic data/reports, so I unfortunately will not be using the 3's GPS much. Unlike...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion

Filled it up with Pennzoil Platinum 0w-20 and replaced with Mazda...
