I have since noticed the car fails and doesn't work right when you get heavy rain.
1. The auto wipers do not change to their fastest setting, I tried various settings I was forced to switch the wipers to permanently on, auto was useless and dangerous.
2. Message comes on the dash ... Safety...
As the title states, since I've owned the car (47 miles on the ODO), I've a hissing noise when I accelerate hard past 3500RPM.
I thought it was just the suction sound of the JBR intake, but now that I've removed my rear seat entirely, I notice that the sound is actually coming from the rear of...
This build thread is now completed. The 3 will be returned entirely to it's stock form and will be traded in for a different vehicle within the coming months. Thanks for a hell of a ride with all you guys, I've had a blast!

In the few days I have owned my manual '05 Mazda3 2.3, I have really enjoyed it. Fun car.
Is the clutch spring on the manual supposed to be on the heavy/strong side? There is no friction in the movement, it shifts smoothly, but you really have to put a decent amount of force into it...
Hi I have a 2014 maZDA 3 but here "unfortunately" it comes with the 1600cc MZR engine.

Just finished up today. Here are my impressions:
Installed the SSP on the weekend and drove it for a few days prior to putting on the knob. Right away the shifting felt smoother. Here's what one CorkSport reviewer said:
"Awesome product. Shortened the shifts by about 30% and removed the weird...

Hello boys and girls! I purchased my new skyactiv 3 a few months ago and love it. I had a Protege5 for the last couple of years and it started dying on me :crybaby 1:
Anyway, my previous love had been in the mini truck area. Below are what I did to my blazer xtreme. I bought it brand new and...
Need something stronger than the Energy 1.25" RSB brackets that came with my Corksport RSB and also come with many others. What are you guys using?
Saw Hotchkiss makes a set of heavy duty units, $100 for the pair. Any other good options?
I have had my Mazda 3 since June 1, 2010. No complaints, no problems. Tonight I was out at a church event and there was a serious rain storm. When I left to drive home, the tire pressure warning light came on, and the Nav system computer told me to check the tire pressure. I pulled...
So first of all, this is the first stick car I've actually owned (even though I've known how to drive stick since 3 weeks after I got my license). However, since I've never owned a stick, I've never had to drive in inclement weather conditions.
Now that the snow is coming, I'm not really sure...
