    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hello I have the 2016 iSport hatchback. I have had it for about a year and a half now. I've been doing research but I know absolutely nothing about car tires.

    Hello there all! I am a bit confused about the oil recommended for this vehicle. My "car guy" friends say Mobil 1 synthetic, but the manual says Castrol or MAZDA's oil (?). What do you all use? I've been reading about a particular oil for the skyactiv engine. I don't want to use any oil that...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone. So I got my Mazda 3 a few months back and for the most part, I'm happy with it. I've noticed from time to time when I attempt to accelerate quickly right after slowing down (switching lanes quickly in traffic) that even when I floor it, the car seems to take so long to reciprocate...
