  1. Handling of 2019 Mazda3 Not Quite as Crisp as Earlier Models?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    A number of commentators have suggested that the 2019 models have somewhat less responsive handling than previously available, perhaps to enhance a more "luxurious" ride. Whether or not this is true, the latest issue of Consumer Reports magazine (CR) seems to agree with this assessment. In the...
  2. Mazda AIO in 4 Gen models

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    Has anyone looked under the hood and check whether Mazda removed any possibility of third party software tweaks to the infotainment system? I know that the gen 3 models were linux based systems, hopefully the news models still employ linux.
  3. How to identify trims in models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I recently imported a 2015 Mazda Axela from Japan and my trim is quite different to local models which lacks some features mine has. I am clueless as to what trim mine is but I hope someone can assist me in finding out. 1. My speakers sounds the best of all the others I heard, sounds like HD...
  4. Are there any other differences on the 2016 models compared to the 2018 models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I know the front and grill shape are different - but I was wondering is anything else different not usable in terms of cosmetics like the MIT grill? What would you guys in the MIT grill replacement? Also anyone have recommendations for wind visors, roof rack, lowering kit (don't want to go...
  5. Any Issues Mexican Manufactured for 2017 models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Has anybody had any issues with a 2017 mazda 3 hatch GT that was manufactured in Mexico? The one I'm looking to purchase happens to be one built in Mexico and I'm a bit concerned about it, almost a deal breaker.

  7. Question about 2017 models' CMU

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, I couldn't find anything similar to my question with the search, so hoping that this really is not a duplicate posting I decided to create a new thread. I'll soon be the owner of a 2017 CX-3 and I know it uses the same CMU as the Mazda 3. If I'm not mistaken the 2017 version of the 3...
  8. Final Drive and Gearing Differences between models

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I was browsing Mazda's site yesterday looking for information about brakes, and I stumbled upon some interesting information regarding the MT, and the gearing is different between the 3i and the 3s, and how the final drive differs between models. The gearing is as follows: Mazda 3i Sport 1st...
  9. Can you still factory order 2016 models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    First of all, I'm somewhat of a noob with cars in general and definitely with the buying process. So, if this is a dumb question sorry in advance. I'm getting conflicting information from the dealerships I've been in communication about whether it's possible to order a new 2016 with the exact...

  11. SP25 Sport button missing in Australian models

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a 2014 SP25 Astina (Gen3 BM) without the "Sport" button next to the auto shifter. Checking the brochures, online images, reviews etc it seems the Australian models don't include this button. Does anyone know which models/countries have the Sport button? Are the internals for sport mode...

  16. Note about rear brakes and s models 2014

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So at least on the west coast, no one has them in stock. So order them ahead of time. Don't do it at the dealer, apparently the made in japan models use something different than the made in mexico ones. You want the 1729 model. Most systems out there today apparently show the wrong...

  19. Clutch action on i and s models (MT)?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I went out and test drove 2 Mazda3s - an iGT, and an sT, both with manual trans. I noticed that on the iGT, the clutch was light and the pressure required on the clutch was even throughout the pedal travel. However, on the sT the clutch was not quite the same. At the beginning of the pedal...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all Thanks for all the good info on the forums, I've done a lot of searching and am still torn on whether to go with an I touring or S touring manual. If you have experience, the following are what we're hanging up on: Stock base stereo. Old car was a Subaru with the premium 7 speaker...
