  1. Goodbye and Giveaway

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Here's a quick backstory to help understand the reason I'm making this post. I am a college student about halfway through my Bachelors. I have been living with my parents for a VERY low cost while doing my first two years in community college. Now, I am transferring to a university and I will be...
  2. Goodbye hand-me-downs, hello Mazda3

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi Everyone, I've been driving hand-me down Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs (mostly from grandparents generation) since I first got behind the wheel of a car. It's been a great way to save money on new car purchases, and I honestly didn't mind riding in the comfort of a road boat until engine...

    Just got rear ended by some jackass not paying attention on the highway. Totaled my 4 month old car. I`m more or less fine, so far. I`ll part out the aftermarket once the insurance signs off on it.
  4. New to Mazda; Goodbye Nissan!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    So, I had a 2015 Nissan Versa that I hated. The cloth got dirty easily and was hard to keep clean. I also put 35k miles on it in 10 months. Not driving as much now, so seeing how it was either stick with the car I hate forever or take the $6k loss on the loan, I decided to lease a 2016 Mazda 3...
  5. Goodbye Bullseye (Mazda3 '15 sGT)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello awesome Mazda owners, it is with a heavy heart that a bid farewell to my Mazda3. I had him for a little over a year and it was probably the best car I've ever owned. Sold him about a couple of weeks ago for $20,500, but just found a post for it online...

    Yesterday was a sad day. Having to part with my 2010 Mazda3 S Sport 5-door after almost 6 years. It was my first new car and loved it so much. Replacing it is a brand New 2015 Mazda3 S Grand Touring:) Happy to stay with Mazda! And btw, they have blown me away with this new generation. Love the...
  8. A Hard Goodbye

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, So I was not exactly the most active forum member here, nor the one that was online, but I really did like the community here and I loved (and still will) love my Mazda 3. I traded it for a Mazda 6 Touring (2.5, 6MT) earlier today. I've read multiple DIY's and threads on stuff, and...
  9. Goodbye Z... Hello 3!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Greetings All, New to the forum, just wanted to say hello. I traded in a 2005 Nissan 350z (35th Anniversary Edition) and a 2006 Harley-Davidson VRSCR Street Rod last Tuesday for a 2012 Mazda 3 i-Touring. Thought it might be time to start acting like a reasonably sane adult rather than racing...
  10. Goodbye to blue eyes, hello to speed3!

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    So it's been forever and a day since I posted on here. But I finally may have a reason to get involved again. I finally traded in my 2.5 and bought a brand new 2013 speed in black. And I fuckin love it. I'm amazed at how much I've been missing out on with that little 2.5 of mine. Although I am...
  11. Saying Goodbye to my 3

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    It looks like the time has come. I went from a '92 323 to a '01 Protege to a '09 3 to a '11 3 and now the time has come to be a big boy. Trading my '11 3 S tomorrow for a 2014 CX-5. I will miss the zippy-ness and the low ride, yet I will embrace my improved headroom and cargo space. Wife is...
  12. Saying goodbye to y'all...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Low and behold my defection has come a bit sooner than expected. My local VW dealer made me an offer I couldn't refuse on a 2011 GTI manual with sunroof. I take delivery on Monday. I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of those friends I've made here on the board! You've made me feel welcome...
  13. Goodbye My 3

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have to go into Korean military base for two years starting tomorrow. Didn't know this will happen when I signed papers for my graphite mica GT hatch exactly a year ago. Many thanks to my 3 for short but great memories. The car'll be in my parents care while I'm gone but they'll eventually...
