  1. Interesting observation: huge difference between city and hwy mileage

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    2015 Mz3 iGT Hatch Auto. I have enough data now that I can say decisively that this car's fuel economy is interesting. Coming off a 2003 Pontiac Vibe, a 1997 Civic before that, and a 2000 Corolla before that, this car has the largest difference between city and highway mileage. The Vibe would...
  2. Just noticed this....very interesting

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I'm in a manual, UK spec 3. Pull up at the lights and stop, keep foot on clutch (so not to engage the iStop) and the brake, after a few seconds the revs drop to about 500-600. Take foot of the brake and the revs rise to just over 1000. This looks to me like a anti stall measure. Quite clever...

    Hi Everyone. I was having a small issue with my MZD system where it kept freezing during stages and had enough and called the dealer. the dearler advised me to go to the fusebox and remove the fuss to MZD for a few minutes and place it back in. this apparently helps with the system freezing...

  10. Interesting layout

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Got bored... Examined the engine bay and other misc stuff. The car was built in 10/12 and I bought it in 7/13, so it's been waiting for the right buyer for over 8 months! Maybe I should change out the factory oil sooner than 5K miles...Found few electric connections with minor oxidation... I...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, I have been off the forum way too long :sad 1: been busy with school and work and just haven't had the time to visit and post on here. So anyways, I've noticed that my battery in my car dies awfully quickly. For instance, I left my car on the street for 30 minutes with the blinkers...

    so I'm looking online today at the cost of new blocks ( incase I blow mine into space with the turbo build ) and what is interesting to me is that on ebay, a ford duratec 2.5 block sells for like 900-1000, while a mazda 2.5 block sells for like 2500+ why?? aren't these blocks like identical...
  16. Interesting info on the Skyactiv model for the Mazda3...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I was very much interested in trying to buy my first Mazda3 as the Skyactiv version this year. More specifically, I was looking at the manual transmission version on the hatchback which would get 38 on highway. Yes I know its new technology, but if it delivers on the mpg on highway I'd...

    So I went to a Chevy dealership last saturday and was wondering if they knew what the gear ratios were for the 6spd Corvette LT3. I took a look at one with options that I wanted and saw it was around $56,000 without negotiations. I always thought they were higher than that and the crazy thing...
  19. Interesting Post-CorkSport SRI Install Observation

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    FWIW... Prior to installing the CorkSport SRI, it seemed like I was always cleaning soot from around my exhaust tips, presumably due to the car running rich. After installing the SRI, I have noticed a significant reduction in the amount of soot that collects around the tips. Not knowing a lot...
  20. Interesting Borla news

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    so i called Borla just to see what's what on the mazda 3 exhaust. turns out the speed 3 exhaust, which is available is axle back, not cat back, per they found no performance gains with the cat back. odd thing is, it's still $700+, at least directly from their site. i then asked about the...
