    I took my Mazda3 CPO back to the dealership a week after purchasing it since the shifter vibrates while accelerating in the 3rd gear. They replaced the shifter assembly, however that obviously did not solve the issue. I took the car back to them and fought to get them to acknowledge the issue...

    Hi guys, I got a BN Mazda 3 manual and it start making this clunking/clicking noise. It happens when I go over mildly bumpy roads. I also keep to be able to replicate it when grind the gear to start the car rolling very slowly. But it seems the vibration/shuddering of the car is what...

    Hi All, Anyone got a guide to how to change the Gearbox Oil please. Covered 60K and its sometimes a little 'crunchy' when changing gear so thought it might help. Thanks in advance.

    Bought a 2015 3 i Sport last month, 60k on the clock. On the way home from from the Toyota dealer where I bought it, it popped out of 5th gear. This happens nearly every time I drive it now if I linger in 5th, but not every time. I've taken it to the Mazda dealer twice. They haven't been able to...

    My 2015 SE-L Nav displayed problems with engaging 3rd / 4th gear, and after a couple of visits to Victoria Park Mazda in Cardiff, they carried out TSB 05/001-15, replacing the 3rd and 4th gears and synchro hubs. After a running in period, this cured the 3rd / 4th gear problems. However, I've...

    Hi Everyone, I am looking for a solution to change the gear ratio in my 2005 2.3 Mazda 3, particularly for the last gear to make it more of an overdrive. The car was purchased in the US with a stock 5-gear manual transmission but I subsequently changed the transmission to a 6-gear one from 2007...

    Disclaimer: There are just some observations in my ten months of owning this car (currently at 12k). The ONLY reason I'm putting this out here is because I am curious to see if anyone else has had similar experiences and if there are any solutions people have figured out for these quirks...

  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Recalls / TSB / SSB
    Hey guys! As some of you may know I've been having the problem with the extremely notchy shifter from 2 to 3 and 4 to 5. I began to accept it as a normal feeling even though it felt like the car was not engaging into the gears as smoothly as the test drive unit. So I brought it into my dealer...
