  1. Dashboard Pulling Up

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My 2013 Mazda 3 has an issue with the dashboard, right above the center screens that display the fuel efficiency, radio, etc. The dash itself is pulling up. Has anyone else experienced this? I noticed the same thing on a scrapyard Mazda the other day, so my guess is it may be a common issue. It...
  2. Did Mazda fix Soul Red Crystal issues for 2019 Mazda3?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    A lot of Mazda forums including this one have people complaining about how easily the SRC paint chips and swirls on 2018 CX-5s and 3/6s. Does anyone now if the formulation changed for our cars to improve the durability of the clearcoat?
  3. blind spot monitoring cutting out mid drive-help!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just got a 2017 mazda3 (2.5L touring hatchback with navigation) and everything is great, except an issue with the blind spot monitoring system. It works for the first 8-10 minutes of the drive perfectly, then it just turns off. When I go into the infomation system, it says it's still turned on...
  4. How to fix Hard Ride (and Clunking)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey I've got a 2012 3i Hatchback with 116k, and I believe the ride has been getting rougher over the last 10k miles or so. I mean by that for example that going over speed bumps is very uncomfortable unless at a crawl. It has also recently started making a knocking noise in the rear when going...
  5. Annoying dash rattle found... but how do I fix it?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hey Mazda 3 Gurus... OK, I finally found the annoying dash rattle and got a little video of it. It happens when I drive over any road that is less than perfect, and yes it drives me nuts. It occurs right under the top of the dash on the passenger side only. If I make a fist and lightly tap the...
  6. First post, hoping to fix of my Wife's car.

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hello everyone, I know it's generally bad manners to come fresh onto a forum and start asking questions, so I've done a bit of research trying to find previous topics on the subject and I wasn't successful. My wife has a 2008 2.0L automatic Mazda 3. She's got almost 230,000 miles and the...
  7. Ignition Key In/Not in Issue Fix?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    So did anybody ever find the fix for the issue where the car thinks that the key is in the ignition but it isn't? All I can find online is to take it to the dealer for a warranty fix or that it's in a "pin in the ignition". I know there is a TSB about it but as anybody ever performed this with...

  9. How To Fix Rear Passenger-Side Window?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback and a few things need fixing. The rear passenger window only works with the control on the rear passenger side door, not on the "master" control switch on the driver's door armrest. So: How do I fix this? Or is this something that is more of a hassle...
  10. How To Fix Driver Side Mirror?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback and a few things need fixing. The driver side mirror goes up and down with the electrical control but not in-out (or side-to-side). I think the mirror mount is broken because the mirror is kind of "floppy" just pushing it on the sides with a finger. So...
  11. What's my best option to fix this?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  12. Maintenance light stuck on? The fix!!!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So last week I went for an oil change, maintenance light(orange wrench) was reset and then I adjusted the distance on it as I prefer to have my oil changed earlier than recommended. Everything was cool until today, it came back on and its stuck on. I checked and reset, turned off, changed...
  13. Fix for not shifting out of park?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Shifter stuck in park. Brake lights work, replaced switch anyway. Fuses are good. Could be shift interlock solenoid but if the park override switch works would that mean the shift interlock solenoid is good? Saw a video where a guy says it could be a faulty relay in the passenger junction box...

  16. Unknown Artist/Album/Title - how to fix

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a large meticulously tagged collection of mp3 songs that work perfectly across different platforms – apart from the Infotainment system (i.e. the USB ports) where a few mp3s come up as unknown artist/album/title and it just displays the filename instead (the tracks play okay). No matter...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello everyone! Some parts of my car were recently painted in Mazda collision center, they have painted the front and rear bumpers, also the hood. But when looking at it, I can see a slight difference. I know the color has a code in Mazda agency, so there is no way it can be wrong (they say)...
  19. 2014 - audio cuts out from left side periodically - any known fix?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The girlfriend just bought a used 2014 Mazda3 iGT, and when listening to the radio (it may also happen in other modes, we haven't used them much yet) the audio will periodically cut out from the driver's side for a few seconds. It sounds a lot like what happens when the nav is giving...

    Hey guys, I'm new here, excited to get started! So I just got my 2010 Mazda 3 last year, making payments on it. Love it, but it has a ton of scratches all over the body.
