  4. Front Doors Sound Deadening

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just wondering if this car benefits from sound deadening of the front doors where the speakers are. The installer I spoke to said yes but of course he's gonna say yes. Thought I'd check if any of you have done sound deadening and if there's noticeable difference in audio quality. Thanks

My main question right now is about the seals around the doors. I took it to a car wash and noticed water collected on the car outside of...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, I started noticing that the LED switchbacks I have from morimoto/ TRS will not always flash when I unlock the doors. On the first click of unlocking, one may flash, but on the second click both do. Turn signals on mirrors and taillight turn signals which are still halogen bulbs do flash as...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I don't have the proximity entry option on my 2015 Mazda 3 (GS trim), and use the key fob to lock/unlock doors. When I unlock the doors, all the signal lights flash, which is nice. However, it doesn't do that when locking the doors. The only way to be sure if I've actually locked the car is...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone, I just picked up a 2016 3, and have noticed that a few of the plastic plugs in the underside of the side sill/rocker panels have already started to show paint cracking around them (since Mazda install the plugs before they paint the car). I can only assume the cracking of the...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    My 2012 Mazda 3's power door locks have stopped locking. Neither the button (passenger and driver) on the door will lock the doors nor will the key. Also, the car no longer automatically locks the doors after driving for a few seconds. I can, however, unlock the doors using both the inside...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have had my 2015 S GT HB for two days. In order to unlock all doors I have to press the remote button or the door button twice. I would really like to have a one touch unlock all doors. Do I really have to take it to the dealer to have them program that? If so will they charge me? Don
