  1. 1,000 Mile Review - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hello Everybody, Just hit 1,000 miles in my 2019 hatchback and that means it's time for a review. First we will start off with the good. -I am averaging about 28.5 MPG with mostly highway driving with the a/c on most of the time. I suspect the mileage will get even better as the engine...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've had it for exactly two months and right under 2000 miles. So far, very impressed but with a few minor complaints. The engine (2.5) and transmission seem to be sorted well with excellent power and smooth operation. I'm easy on the gas pedal, so I'm getting around 34.5 MPG in mixed...

  12. Revs Per Mile of stock 18s?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I'm looking for the revolutions per mile for the stock 18 inch Dunlops. Tirerack doesn't have that info and Dunlop's site is too dumbed down so it doesn't include that either. I've also seen two very conflicting numbers on other sites. Anyone know?

  16. 600 mile club anyone?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I get so excited with this stuff, Yesterday I hit 601.4 miles on a single tank. The computer read 44.0 as I coasted into the gas station. After doing the math with what I put in, mileage came out to 43.75 mpg's. When the pump stops I always fit in an extra gallon to top it off. As you can see...
