    Hey all! I'm new to the mazda 3 community, so please take it easy on me! Anyway, I did an oil change on my 2012 Mazda 3 2.5L and I guess the parts store gave me the wrong oil filter (shorter than previous filter), but it fit and tightened up so I didn't think anything of it. I drove for less...
  10. Did FW v70 eliminate the ability to make calls while driving?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I could swear the infotainment center used to let me make a phone call while driving. I remember dialing a number with the command knob and navigating a call centers menus with the knob. After upgrading to FW v70, it seems that ability was been taken away. Is it just me or did they actually...

    Hey guys, so my check engine light came on randomly while I was driving on the highway, there was nothing I can say was happening when it went off. I was not speeding, didn't go over any major pothole, nothing? Any ideas what it could be? I recently had a lot of suspension and break work done...
  12. Driving into the sun

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Heading west on a road trip, I discovered that driving directly into the setting sun apparently confuses the lane keeping and auto braking camera(s), making their no-workee-workee icons light up on the dash. Veer ten degrees north or south, and they recover spontaneously. I also wished for...

    I have a 2014 Mazda3 i GT with automatic transmission and about a week ago I noticed that it?s been making this weird clicking noise that is coming from the front passenger side when I am driving. It speeds up when I go faster and slows down when I slow down. Tires look fine and the tire...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So ever since I got my car in November 2014 I have been one of the many who suffer from the active driving display (ADD) that randomly will not open.

  18. Tip to Improve Active Driving Display Contrast

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm quite tall and view the Active Driving Display (ADD) against the hood / bonnet. I've found a very simple way of greatly improving the ADD contrast. Don't do this if you see the ADD against the road ahead since your view of the road will be partly obscured. Buy a sheet of thin matt black...
  19. How much damage have I done to my new winter tires by driving this entire spring...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have been putting off changing them because I've been saving up to buy a set of rims for my summers. Didn't want to pay for the stock steel rims being changed back to summers, and then off again. Worried I've done some real wear on my brand new winters because of my stupidity.
