He went to back out of the driveway, and since our driveway narrows...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have a question about the grille inserts on the MZ3 hatch. The right grille on my car got poked by a stick today, leaving a hole. Fortunately, there's no serious damage that I can detect. Just cosmetic stuff. I'm planning to patch the hole with tape for now to keep out bugs and pebbles...
