    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hey all, I've had my 2005 Mazda 3 GS since it was new and I've never had to replace it's windshield. I have the auto headlight and rain sensing wipers and was wondering if anyone has replaced a similar model windshield lately and how much it costs. I've gotten some pretty nice rock chips in...

  4. Car Insurance Cost

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Quick question. When financing a new car, does the comprehensive/collision coverage decrease or stay the same year to year? I was thinking it would go down a bit on the 2nd year of coverage due to depreciation and lower value of the car, but my total insurance cost went up by 4%. Does it affect...
  5. Cost to replace rear pads & rotors?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Hi all. Hope this is in the right place. My dealer offers lifetime free oil change and basic maintenance, so I've used them for service so far on my 2014 iGT. However, I just went in for an oil change, and they wanted to sell me their 45K service, which includes a "fuel pump and injection...
  6. High Cost of Maintenance, '14 S GT

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Car: 2014 Mazda 3 HB S Grand Tour, 2.5L Just finished up an oil change at 54k miles and was told by the dealer that I had a 60K major service coming up. They gave me a list that seems to deviate from the owner's manual. Check out the pricing though, that's what is freaking me out! What can I do...
  7. Mazda 3 2014 - Bumper is dented, repaint cost

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello, What a bad day! My neighbor missed her parking and dented my car. What a mess. I am posting a picture. You can see on the picture that I had already some damage on the bumper (never knew what happened that last time) that I covered with the pen that came with the car. Now, since the...
  8. How much do you think this repair should really cost?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Right side quarter panel was scraped against a concrete pillar in the underground parking lot. A bit of the panel was dented in. Went to a a local professional shop that the dealerships all use and was quoted for $1900 and the car will be out for a full work week. Went to ask another smaller...
  9. Clutch feel and replacement cost?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Long story short, my car was broken into, went to replace glass, glass shop screwed up my paint/dented car, "fixed it" and did a shit job, and now my clutch feels different. Just to clarify, I noticed the dent after I got the car back from having the glass replaced. I noticed a crack/dent in...
  10. Bumper tuck cost

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    so I backed into a lady's car. totally my fault. she was kind enough to not go through the entire insurance claim business. So ill be paying to fix the bumper. Its not scratched or dented but the part where the bumper meets the body( by the right tire) is slightly raised like 1 quarter of an...
  11. [Question] How much would something like this cost to fix? (Scratched)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I accidentally scratched my car against a pole yesterday and want to go see some mechanics about fixing it but dont want to get ripped off, if anyone has experience in this field, could you tell me what price range I'm looking at? Thanks guys. There's also a small bend above the tire but...
  12. Cost effective Turbocharger

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Any input on a turbocharger (brand) for < 350hp that is ~ $1000 or less? I'm talking the turbo itself, not the other components. Seems like "precision turbo" is a reputable company with low prices, any other from experience (first hand/vicariously)? Or, a good brand if buying a used turbo?
  13. Lowering spring install cost?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Just ordered a set of CS springs and now i need to install them. I would install them myself but im not too mechanically inclined and plus i stay in an apartment complex. I called one placed and they quoted at the least $400 because the front springs took about 4 1/2 hours and the back only took...
  14. Aero Kit Cost & Instructions

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    For those of you who have bought the full aero kit (front, side, rear), what kind of pricing did you get on it? And did you install it yourselves or had the dealer do it? Looking at getting them for my black '15 sGT, but unsure what the actual cost is. I've seen on FB folks getting them for...
  15. Brake upgrade options - low cost

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Was looking at some lower cost brake upgrade solutions for the 2014 mazda 3. Seems the rotor size is smaller than the previous gen. I picked up a pair of FD3S Mazda RX-7 calipers and wanted to use those. I figure have two options to go with... 1. Use a Mazda RX8 rotor (323mm diameter, 24mm...
  16. Anyone asked for Lifetime Map Updates? Cost after Year 3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm negotiating via email for a '15 sGT hatch, auto, white (extra $200) with tech package. MSRP with $795 destination is $30,190. 5 dealerships have given me quotes which I think expire 1/5/15 for year end sales(?). Before my state's TT&L, the lowest year end cash price is $27,155 and the...
  17. Hav you ever seen a this hole?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    If you remove glove box, you can see the hole. I think it is glove box lamp socket and tried to insert t- 10 socket. (material is rubber) Is it cost saving? terrible...
  18. Cost of High Octane Fuel

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi, I have wondered for years why Hi Octane fuel is more expensive than regular. If one litre of gasoline has the same amount of energy in it no matter what octane level, why the cost premium? A high octane level is as I understand to stop pre-ignition in high compression engines. Putting it...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi guys, I am going to the dealer to get my car's first maintenance. It's about 5K miles. I am just wondering how much you pay for the first maintenance service in dealer? Thanks!
  20. Cost to replace front bumper

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just got a quote of $2,383 for parts and labor to replace my front bumper, and wanted to check and see if that was reasonable, because it seems ridiculously high. The parts are quoted at $1,385, and the labor is about $850. I was expecting a total cost at around $1,000. I attached the estimate...
