  2. 2019 Gen4 Mazda3 hatch feels cramped

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    So I've yet to drive the new 3 hatch, but I did sit in one at the dealer and then in 2 of them at the NY Auto Show. I'm the owner of a 2017 Mazda3 GT hatch that I love (white on white), and was really excited about the prospect of the new 3 when my lease is up in 18 months. The 3 at the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    2.5L - How much oil? Engine feels a tiny bit slower?! Well thanks to a suggestion on reddit I finally am able to use my dipstick. I have never had a problem on any other vehicle but on this car the dipstick flat out didnt give me usable measurements (not accurate or precise), my father also...
  4. Power steering feels light and disconnected now?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I bought my 2011 2.5 hatchback used a few years ago. One of the driving characteristics that liked when I bought it was that the steering felt somewhat heavy and gave great feedback. Well, fast forward a year and I had a minor accident. One of the first things I noticed when I got my car back...

  6. Car feels like it's struggling

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    So it's one of those times where something is wrong but I don't know what... I have a voltage reader in my car and typically it should be around 14.4-14.6 volts or maybe a bit higher but that's where my car is perfectly fine, anyway lately it's been sticking around 14.0 volts and sometimes...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  8. feels less torquey after 20k miles?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    My coworker and I both have 2014 Mazda3 iTouring hatchbacks with the 2.0L engine. We're both at about 20k miles after a year and a half of owning the car. We both feel that our cars don't pull as hard as they did new. I find it really hard to believe my car can do a sub 8s 0-60 as rated. I...
  9. Manual Newbie feels accelerate slow in 1st and 2nd gear

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Finally, I got my 2011 Mazda 2.5s Sport a few weeks ago. I had never driven manual car except in driving school before. I felt the car has great torque in 5th gear round 50 miles. But, when I start from 1st gear, I feel I have to quickly shift gear thru the third gear to get going. Otherwise...
  10. Brake pedal feels harder when pressed second time

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    When coming to a rapid stop, I steadily press hard on the brake, but as many of you have found, Mazda 3's brake pedal feel is somewhat soft. Anyway, couple days ago, I pressed the brake a bit earlier than needed and let it go and then almost immediately pressed the pedal again ( like pumping...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I don't own a speed 3, but I test drove a 2011 early last week, and then a 2010 on saturday. After driving the 2011 I was wondering why everybody was complaining about the clutch. Then I drove a 2010 on saturday and understood. I swear they smoothed out the clutch for 2011. Am I insane? Has...
