  1. Third time's the charm? Three non-fault accidents in 15 months!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Is it time to sell? My first red car, is red not my color? I love this soul red! Why are the car gods upset with me for veering off blue?!? (Last year the car sustained $6500 worth of damage to the front and rear bumpers after three months of possession.) So I'm at the dealership's body shop...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey all, I've been putting off joining a forum for my car for a bit now, but now I figure it's time. In June, I traded in my 1998 Dodge Durango for a 2014 Mazda3 Touring. I would have gone GT but I really wanted to get back to driving a manual transmission and it was a shame they only offered...
  4. 2014 Mazda 3 dead on road after 4 months / 5,000 miles - P0302 Cylinder #2 Misfire

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Not to happy that my 2014 Mazda 3 with 5,000 miles died on the road. I was next to AutoZone and the code that was scanned was P0302 Cylinder #2 Misfire. Had to get it towed to the nearest Mazda dealer. It took 2 days to get a new coil and get me back on the road. The Royal Mazda in...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I love it I thought about looking into a '13 Dart or '13 Civic, but I made up my mind with my first test drive of the 2013 Mazda3 iTouring. I was advised against the Dart, and I have no regrets from what I read now. Comparing the Mazda and Civic online took some time, but I wanted to check...
  6. A little concerned about rust at 7 months

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello! I have a 2012 Mazda 3i skyactiv which is pretty fun to drive. I decided to change my own oil this time and when i got under it, I was pretty shocked to see so much rust under it. The car was purchased new in September of 2012 with 7 miles on it, 7 miles from the dealer going to get gas...
  7. Brake pads for just 11 months...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Hello all. I am having a weird noise which I believe are my brake pads. After I drive for a little while in stop and go traffic, I get a humming noise as I begin to move from a dead stop. If I lightly press the brake it goes away. I believe it to be pads needing replacement with 25k miles on...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have officially had my 2010 Grand Touring sedan for ~1.5 months now and 1500 miles so I have had the opportunity to test out everything and live with the car some time. Lets just say my time with the car has reaffirmed my decision and my only regret is I did not pick up a 3 earlier. I...

  16. Sirius Radio - 6 Months Free?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    This may be a dumb question, but I have never had satellite radio before. I realize I get 6 months free, but is there anything special I have to do when activating the esn? I am about to activate via the sirius website and it has a spot for a promo code after entering the esn, so I wasn't sure...
