    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have to press the brake hard a few times. I know about the release (did NOT have to use that method yet). Is there an adjustment before I bring it back to the dealer? I know that this is a common problem on many cars...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have both original fobs. Both of them used to work, but recently, over the last 6 months I've been having problems. I used the pullout key for a while because it seemed like I was always replacing batteries. Recently I decided to try to get both working again. I replaced both batteries...
  3. Best springs for occasional track days?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I'm going to be upgrading springs on my daily that will occasionally see a road course/autox day. I'm wondering if anyone has some experience tracking their 3's and what springs they're using. I'm leaning toward either h&r or racing beat because they seem to be a bit stiffer than prokit/corksport.
