  2. 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...

    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. 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...

    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...

    new 2015 3i Sport Hatchback AT (1k miles). if i see a red light, I let go of the gas and try to cruise to a stop. but as soon as my speed goes below 20mph, it feels like my speed is decreasing a lot faster? (the road is flat.)

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
