  13. I see a Mazda 3 in my future

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    My lease of a 2011 Elantra ends this March 23, so I've been looking at possible contenders for the future. While I thought the Elantra was a great looking car, both inside and out, it had quirky acceleration and road noise. I had looked at a 2011 Mazda 3 but did not like it as much as the...

    When I bought my 3, the body shop department installed my side skirts. What I want to know is whether or not I will experience future rust out problems as they had to drill holes on each side to install these. I did ask them to apply paint on each drill hole but there is no way of telling. I can...

    I've ordered a '13 Mazda3i GT and should be getting it within a week or so. Pretty excited as I haven't been in a new car since I bought my '07 Aveo in 2006. Kind of sad to see the old dog go. . . but this Mazda is legit. I got the 6 speed manual in the Graphite. I plan on blacking out the...

    I was wondering if anyone has heard about anyone successfully swapping a transmission in the 3, and if so how much it costed.
