  1. 2006 Mazda 3 Regular Maintenance

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Are 2004 Mazda RX-8 struts compatible with a 2006 Mazda 3? If not where can I get some decent quality struts with spring assembly for all 4 wheels for the lowest price possible? Also I am looking for wheel bearings as well for all 4 wheels. Thanks for the help. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

  5. maintenance, keeping the warranty conditions happy

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have 2017 Mazda3 sport and I don't drive much (3000 miles a year!). AFAIK I need to follow some maintenance schedule that Mazda suggests in order to not hurt my warranty (and the car). The maza dealership wants me to come in every 4 months or 5000 miles whichever comes first which I think is...

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion

  9. Maintenance Mode for Electric Park Brake

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    While looking at how to change rear pads on my 2017 M3. I came across a Ford cheat that didn't involve the dealership hooking a computer to retract the EPB, further delving led me to a Mazda site that elaborated the procedure on a 2016/2017 CX-5 Does this procedure work on our Mazda 3 with...
  10. Maintenance light stuck on? The fix!!!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So last week I went for an oil change, maintenance light(orange wrench) was reset and then I adjusted the distance on it as I prefer to have my oil changed earlier than recommended. Everything was cool until today, it came back on and its stuck on. I checked and reset, turned off, changed...

  12. Proper Maintenance Schedule

    Car Maintenance/Car Care
    I purchased a CPO 2016 Mazda 3 with 5,500 miles in July. I am currently at 8,000 miles and a light (yellow wrench) came up saying I should take it in for maintenance. With only 2,500 miles added since purchasing it CPO, I am wondering if it is premature to take it in now as the manual says it...

    Car: 2014 Mazda 3 HB S Grand Tour, 2.5L Just finished up an oil change at 54k miles and was told by the dealer that I had a 60K major service coming up.

  17. For a new Mazda 3, what would you do from a preventative maintenance aspect

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I just purchased a 2017 Mazda 3 Touring sedan - and I have to say I really like the car. It replaces a 2002 BMW 325xi - and I have to say - it has a grin factor nearly as large as the Bimmer - without the large price tag. I'm hopeful to keep this car as long as the BMW (15 years). With that...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    From my 2016 owner's manual: "The flexible setting is available in the United States and Puerto Rico. Based on the engine operating conditions, the onboard computer in your vehicle calculates the remaining oil life. Mazda Genuine 0W-20 oil and Castrol® 0W-20 oil are required to achieve optimum...
  19. New car maintenance schedule

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I bought a 2017 Mazda-3 (grand touring) 4 months ago. I don’t drive much; there's only 2,500 miles on it. At only 4 months and 2,500 miles, the dashboard wrench light indicates it’s time for an oil change. Why would it already be time for an oil change?
