    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey gang, Been lurking and reading for a while, but thought I'd post a hello finally... My first 3 was a 2010 sGT hatch in Celestial Blue, but got automatic, and after 6 months really missed driving stick, so traded it in. 2nd 3 was a 2015 sTouring hatch in Blue Reflex, again in automatic due...
  2. Loving my 2015 Mazda 3

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    This is my intro post. I bought a 2015 Mazda 3 Grand Touring hatch last Saturday and am very impressed with the car. I'm coming from a 2000 VW Golf TDI with 260K miles! The VW gets 45-50 MPG, but at diesel prices, it cost just a little more for gas for the Mazda. I drive a lot. I have a 90 mile...
  3. Purchased my 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback 2 weeks ago and loving it!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Coming from a 2010 Honda Civic. Loving the feel of the Sport mode and the car's entertainment system the most. The one thing that I wish it had was a digital speedometer (I got Touring, not Grand Touring so no HUD). I've tried the AIO but it seems dangerous looking constantly over to the right...

    Well, a friend in the industry just found me a beautiful '14 Mazda3 Sport GS at a dealer auction, and damn, this is one sweet little car. Having test-driven pretty much everything in the class this year, I'm pretty comfortable saying this is the best six-speed stick and the best...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Do you still have that first-love-crush like feeling for your Mazda ? If you still do, good for you! I think my first crush for the Mazda 2013 Skyactiv 2.0 was like for a new girl friend, but now it feels like a comfortable wife after 40 years of marriage :grin2: I lost that "loving...
  8. Second Mazda 3 and loving them

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Back in 2009 I had a car rental in Boston MA. It was a Mazda 3. The weather was very bad, over 18" of snow and I was worried how this small car could track in the snow. To my surprise it was as easy as they come. I have never had any issues with my Mazda 3. My 2010 was my favorite car...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Last week, I picked up my 2012 Mazda 3i Hatch 6 speed. Absolutely in love with this car. $19.3k out the door and a very easy buying experience thanks to a great dealership (Chapman Mazda in EHT, New Jersey). I used to have a 2002 Subaru WRX with a bunch of goodies. The last dyno session made...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Just bought my red speed about three weeks ago and I love it. I had a difficult choice in choosing between the black and red but choose the red cuz it is my favorite color. Although, not entirely sure how to fix up the apperance as I was gonna just black out the black one if I got it. Now not...
  15. Loving the Mazda3!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello all! I'm glad I found this forum to get some good ideas for appearance and performance mods. Got my 3 in early December and have a whopping 1,200 miles on it. Shameful I know. So road trip, then mods. Has anyone lowered their 3? What would be a good increment to drop? My personal...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi from No VA Just picked up my new 3s Sport Sedan in Graphite Mica with 6M on Friday. Wife's mad at me, but it's worth it. Need to add the Sirius module and install kit, would like to replace the stock speakers and add a nice small sub (like zoom-zoom, not so much boom-boom). I had a Miata...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Well. First post but I had to let everyone know about the 2010 Mazda 3. First off I lost my last Mazda 3.... a 2004 GS when I was rear-ended at a red light 2 months ago. Car was totalled and now I am in physio-therapy form my back 2-3 times a week. Anyway. I have owned a 2010 Mazda 3 (first one...
