  1. New 2015 Mazda s3 GT M/T in Northern Virginia

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Just joined the ranks of the Mazda 3 Revolution. This is my third Mazda and I'm loving it. Previous Mazdas included RX-3 Station Wagon and 2004 RX-8. I'm looking forward to figuring out all the neat stuff Mazda included on this car - it's been 10 years since my last car purchase, and things...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So my 2013 skyactiv 6spd I feel like is grinding from 1st to 2nd. Not really a long dramatic grind but a quick grunt or maybe I'm just feeling it. I have yet to drive aggressively so I don't think that is the problem but when I shift ultra slow it feels a bit smoother. Anyone have the same...

  5. 2.0 M/T vs 2.5 auto

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    What would be quicker? This may be in the wrong section so I apologize if it is. I figured since it said "and performance" this is the place. I cant really find any stats on the 2.0 M/T because all the tests are with auto's it seems like. I'm guessing the 2.0 M/T can do like a 8.0-8.5 0-60? 2.5...
