  1. Sticky Leatherette Solution?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Everyone knows the leatherette seats on the 3 are swampy, but my biggest problem with them is how sticky they are. Ingress and especially egress are a pain. I have applied various conditioners, Pledge, etc, with mixed but always temporary success. Does anyone have a more long-term or even...
  2. Leatherette / interior maintenance

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I just bought a slightly used 2015 Mazda3 S Touring, and the previous owner was a little hard on it...so I want to try and bring it back to life, and I was hoping I could get some advice. The previous owner must have spilled soda on the media console knob/buttons...how can I un-stick the...
  3. Leatherette conditioner/cleaner? Dash protectant/cleaner?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone have thoughts on the best products to protect the interior? I have the leatherette and I'm not sure, but I don't think it's actual leather so I'm really not sure what I should use to protect it. I'm planning on buying 303 aerospace protectant (super well reviewed on amazon) for the dash...

    Just like the title says, the rear seat cushions on my iGT don't seem to be secured on the sides. I can just sorta lift them up a little to see underneath. The first fastener that attaches them is toward the front of the cushion. This is on both sides. Didn't think to check that on other...
  5. Leather vs Vinyl leatherette

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm deciding between a sT and sGT, but leaning towards an sT just just to avoid the real leather, but I want a sunroof! I find the sT leatherette better looking, softer to touch, and actually more comfortable than the "real" leather found in the sGT. I wonder why Mazda didn't use the nice...
  6. i GT leather / leatherette ?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    just to be certain... on the i GT the only REAL leather is the steering wheel & the shifter knob, correct ? so when cleaning, every other surface, including the seats, i can use a regular vinyl cleaner, correct ? loving the car so far! thanks!
  7. Seats, seats and seats!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    That's right, this thread is all about seats! Haha, any way I have to ask, has any one been in some hot weather lately? What kind of seats do you have? Leatherette any better/worse then real leather? Have you put a cover on your seats yet? If so, post pics :D. Any one taken a long road trip...
