  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Heard the scraping signalling that it’s time to switch my brakes up from the rear left tire. I dropped the tire off and to my surprise found that the inner brake pad was worn all the way down (unevenly as well) but the outer brake pad still looked fresh. Anyone have any insight as to why it...

    We just got a 2016 Grand Touring a couple of months ago and I found this odd plastic part on the floor behind the driver seat. Any ideas what it might be? Thanks! Steve

    Should we keep the old purple Mazda? My wife's 2007 Mazda 3 (2.0) sedan (automatic), with 117k miles (paid off) needs about $1k worth of motor mounts and suspension work and we are wondering if it's worth keeping? Repair quote: Both Axel assembly's Transmission mount Motor mounts...

    I'm sure that Mazda executives hang on every word here...not. But for the next iteration of the entertainment unit on Mazda cars, how about putting a universal dock for a phone behind and indeed part of the display screen? Mazda currently lack anywhere to put a phone and placing it there...

    Hello forum.. my 2012 mazda 3 sedan is going for a blacked out look (paint is gray mica), but i feel it is time for a spoiler.. should i go for an oem wing (blacked out) or a lip spoiler (blacked out)? would a black wing look good with a gray mica body? or would a black lip look better?

    Has anyone tried adding a front facing camera to the screen housing? We should be able to bring the video feed into the infotainment system and save to a usb drive with a background app running....

    Looking at mufflers and been googling all morning trying to find out what the 2.5 skyavtiv's put out. I did find some site that suggested a 2.25 diam pipe maxed out just above 400 cfm and 185 HP.

    Will this hurt my 2012 skyactiv 2.0 mazda3 hatchback? Pulling the hand brake and drifting in the snow. Reving the engine high in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear getting the wheels to lose traction in the snow(sometimes in the rain). Shifting wile under loss of traction (sometimes the car shakes)...

    Roof Racks/2015 Mazda 3 Fixed Points Sooo... I just traded in my 13 mz3 for a 14 Mz3iGT. I had previously invested a lot of money in the floor mats and roof racks, floor mats are now taking up space in storage and I cant do anything about that. But on the old Mz3 I had Thule 460 podiums, which...

    Not a big deal but would my dealer be pissed off if I asked to have a 3 Hatchback for a whole day just to see how it fits in with my life and can carry what I need? I'm 99% sure it will do all that but I haven't test driven since December.. Mine won't be here as most of you know until the end of...

    I wonder how feasible it would be to retro fit the exhaust tips and lower molding of the rear bumper from a hatch onto a sedan to get that dual exhaust sporty look??? I want to see my pipes!!!

    I've found a 2008 speed 3 in fantastic condition, 80k miles, no body or interior damage, and all original parts for 11.5k. With that being said, do you think a dealer would take a straight across trade with a 2010 MZ3, 55k miles, and the only blemish being an almost invisible bump on the...
