    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I’m hoping you might have some guidance on how to approach this situation. I was backing out of a parking space when I hit a short pole. I was looked at my camera and it seemed like I had more space than I actually did, so I kept backing up. I didn’t realize it had frozen until I struck...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Had parked on the street for a couple of hours while I ate dinner with a friend only to come out to this damage to the rear bumper. The person that hit me fled the scene with no note left. I checked to see if there are any cameras around but none were pointing in the direction of my car. Can...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    2012 Mazda 3 I hit a curb the other night. Damage is pretty bad from what I can see. Driver side: wheel pushed back, fender is buckled and pushed into door, bent control arm, broke the rim. Could possibly be more. I'm stressing. Insurance says I'm covered. Anyone experienced this kinda...
  8. Rock hit winshield left nickel sized crack

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Insurance will cover a fill which glass company said they can do without replacement. They said it will still be visible after (passenger side). Should I have them fill at no cost or pay for a replacement? This is my second rock hit, first was 2 small to even fill. Would you fill or replace...

    I currently have my first service appointment booked with Mazda next weds. I am confused on what I need to have checked to keep my warranty valid. I can check things like the windshield washer fluid by myself, but I am wondering what you guys get checked during these appointments? Does this...
  10. Just hit 20k miles and wonder if any of you did any special maintenance?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So I was just wondering if there is anything I should do. This is my first newer car and I have always done my own work so I know about oil changes, air filters, and that stuff. What about the tranny fluid, manual, and other fluids? What mileage should these things be done at? I know what...

  12. Hit a large pothole, now handling/suspension seems off.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    The other night while going to pick up my kid from a birthday party, I had to take a turn wide around a car that was sitting way to far out in the intersection. In doing this I hit a large pothole/rut on the side of the rode that jolted the car enough that I initially though I had hit his car...
  13. MS3 hit 40000km and not a single mechanical/electrical problem!

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    This is the first car, (out of the many I've owned), that I haven't had a single issue with 2010 MS3 during the 40,000 km's Ive had it. I won't even mention my not for the faint of heart AP tunes. OOPs I guess I did. I love these cars so much, I wish I could afford to buy a second one before...
  14. Hit and run :(

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I was at a meeting at someones house. Parked in front of the house and came out 3 hrs. Later to find this: Luckily, a guy working outside saw what happened and the driver told him she'll be back. I don't live in the area and it was getting late so I just filed a report. Sucks for the other...

  16. When do the 2011 Mazda Speed 3's hit the US?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I am waiting to pick up my Speed3 until I sell my Cayenne Turbo and was giving it some thought to hold off a little longer until the 11's come out. Anyone know when that will be? Upgrades, mods, colors, etc on the 11 models?
  17. Just found out I was hit

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I started cleaning the winter gunk off of my car today, & found out I was on the wrong end of a hit & run somewhat recently. Thankfully the only damage I can find is to the rear bumper cover. The scratches could be fixed, but there's a dent that looks like it stretched the plastic, so I've...
  18. My 3 was hit as I watched... touch-up paint question

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Was sitting in the bar with the 3 right out front and watch some douchenozzle try to parallel park in front of it and smack right into the front-left of the car, he might have been a bit tipsy since his angle to park was way off and he didn't hit the brakes, hitting the mazda at 3-4 mph. I ran...
