  1. Anyone heard anything re Mazda plans to build in US?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about any Mazda plans to build in the US? Guess there's likely a magic sales # that would provide a cost incentive. Future tariffs could have an effect, too. Heard about Mazdas putting some new engine technology in place by 2018/19. Would also like...
  2. Anyone heard of these guys?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I came across this place today and have never seen them mentioned before. I didn't know where to post it, but figured since most of there stuff was appearance related I'd start here. https://www.atroxcustoms.com/ Has anyone ever dealt with this place? I'm going to send them an email to get...
  3. 3 unknown clicks from roof heard upon starting vehicle and accelerating

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have a 15' iSport Hatch and every time I start the car and begin to accelerate three clicks can be heard which seem to come from the roof of the car. At first it sounded like twigs falling on my car from trees but now I've noticed that it always occurs after the car is turned on and moves...
  4. Rear "Clunk" sound heard when going over speed bumps, up driveways, bouncy road

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Rear "Clunk" sound heard when going over speed bumps, up driveways, bouncy road When my coils were first installed there was no noise at all, so I don't want to blame the coilovers themselves. After a height adjustment, it would happen constantly when driving. At that point it was not a...

  6. 2012 Mazda 3 Back Windshield Loud Cracking Sounds Heard

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My latest issue with my 12 Mazda 3 Grand Touring Sedan (skyactiv) is the back windshield making loud cracking and creaking sounds. It sounds like glass shattering or cracking. Yes, it has been very cold lately but this does not sound normal at all. I took it to the dealership about a month ago...
  7. New sound heard in Mazda3 skyactive

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, well so far so good with the rattle after the 5th time to the dealership. I don't seem to hear that, but I have noticed something new. The last couple times I have shut the car off. I have heard a squeal from the back end. The car is in park and I turn the ignition off and something in...
  8. Has anyone installed or heard of Car LED Light Emblems?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I came across this randomly on amazon and I thought initially it was too flashy. I'm pretty sure having red or blue led lights on the design of the car is illegal. I'm kind of interested in getting the color of white. What do you guys think about it? Sick... or dreadful ? Here is a video of...
