  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a 2017 Mazda 3 2.5L with a m/t. Issue is seems like there could be a better 2nd gear that picks up faster, I hold out till 6000rpm hit 2nd and it feels more like I shifted into 3rd gear. Idk why 2nd gear is so sluggish. Is there a fix for this...a better 2nd gear, a better clutch? Does...
  2. 2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hey everyone. I'm 16 and I just got my first car. A 2003 Mazda 3 hatchback 5 spd manual with 62,000 miles. It's great in every way except the AC. Wether it's on or off it makes this horrendous scraping/screeching noise at any rpm. And when the AC on it makes even worse sounds and some thumping...

    I have a 2017 Mazda 3 Grand Touring that is 2 months old. I previously drove a Mazda cx5 and loved it. I love my new car but HATE HATE the gas mileage Im getting. I've driven it in town for simple errands and have had to fill up twice as more as my SUV. I recently drove an hour and half to and...
  4. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    OK, so I bought a 2016 Mazda 3 iTouring a few months ago, and I wanted to see if I could improve the headlights. My objective was simply to replace the stock bulbs with ones that were brighter and threw more light on the road... so I could see where I was going better. I did *NOT* want to...

    What's up guys this is my first post on this forum! I'm hoping that being a part of this will help me take care of my car better. I like to listen to trap music, therefore am really into a lot of bass. I have a '15 5-door w/o Bose speakers and they're starting to make parts in my car vibrate...

    I am not sure where this horrible crackling sound is coming from but I think its either the windshield or something along the door panels. It is getting worse and worse. Here is a link to the video I took, it is an apparent crackling noise. Anyone else experiencing this...
  7. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I know this issue has probably been brought up already but OMG the radio quality on my new Mazda 3 Sport is HORRIBLE. The FM stations constantly go from stereo to mono no matter where I am located. I took it into the dealer and they updated the software to Version 29. This did nothing. Has...
  8. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    On really frigid days, like 0-20 degrees F, my '10 MS3's suspension makes some of the most disgusting noises I've ever heard. Sounds like the front bumper dragging across a parking block, that's the best way I can describe it, but it comes from both the front and rear suspension. You only hear...

    Hello, First day here. I purchased a Mazda 3 a few days ago. I'm sort of old school and only have an iPod shuffle. They showed me the aux port and said to connect my iPod using a male/male cord with the typical headphone type end. I purchased one and hooked it up this morning. It sounds...

    Has anyone here had an issue with a really loud wind noise and shaking when driving on the highway with both rear windows down? I have a 2010 S sport sedan and was getting on the highway today with the rear windows down. The whole car was shaking and the wind noise was insane. As soon as I...
