    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey all, so I have an early 2014 model with the manual 6 speed, and today is the first day I have officially been concerned about my transmission. I know there is a TSB for clunky shifts, so I'm wondering if that is all this is... It doesn't seem to matter how I shift (gentle, hard, quick...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    2012 Mazda 3 Skyactive: Quick question about the "current miles per gallon" counter. It keeps jumping around constantly without rhyme or reason. For example driving on the highway at 60 MPH, it will keep switching around every 2 seconds, say from 39 MPG, to 64, to 79, to 99.9 then back to 50...
