  1. Disabling hill assist

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Can this option be disabled or the angle at which it is activated increased? I believe I can feel a definite lag between me trying to move and the brakes being released as I sometimes feel a resistance when I try to take off aggressively even on the slightest of inclines. I do not need this...
  2. Hill Start Assist

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    just wondering if this feature is standard on 2014 Mazda 3. Observed it on mine on uphill starts that it holds the break for few seconds which gives ample time to engage the gear and clutch release. Nothing mentioned in saftey features in any North America Mazda's website.

  7. auto tranny - hill roll

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    i dont live in a hilly area but i've encountered a few steep areas where i had to bring my mz3 to a stop. While doing so, the car rolled back when i took my foot off the brake. Is it normal for a car with an auto tranny to roll back on a hill? I thought auto trannies weren't supposed to do this...
  8. Hill Start Assist - Manual Transmission

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi all, While this question might lead me to being flamed, i need to ask... Does the Mazda 3, or Mazdaspeed 3 have a "Hill start assist" feature to prevent roll-back on steep inclines? Working in San Francisco brings nasty hills, and I think it would be a nice feature to have - so does anyone...
