    I cross shopped the Subaru impreza and cx3, on paper my awd 3 crushed them and buying this turd was a no brainer. Things I've noticed since then. Every corner of the car clunks when I take off. Android auto goes full tilt and shuts down 3/4 of the way to every destination. I have to keep the...

    So, I have a new 4 door AWD premium. For the first 1500 miles, I was averaging about 27 MPG. All of a sudden, the MPG started dropping precipitously throughout all kinds of driving (city, highway, etc.), until finally settling around 19. After doing this for 2 weeks, it started picking up again...

    In my quest for increased fuel economy, I've come up with an idea that I wanted to run by you guys... "Economy" and "Economy+" settings for your air conditioner: - Economy mode would only operate the compressor when the throttle input is at 0% for 5 seconds, regardless of whether or not you...

    So it's been a while but now I have a new concern:|: As I mentioned in a post somewhere else, I just took my 2014 3 sGT to my dealership for a 35k service and brake replacement. Upon its return everything seems alright however one thing is different. I usually keep my "info" pane on the...

    Any issues with Mobil 1? I've used it in everything else (save for a few w126 oil-burners) and haven't seen any issues.

    Howdy all, Before I go and jack it up and start spinning the wheels around to be 100% sure, here's what's going on: I have a noise coming from the front that almost sounds like a UFO, it is NOT a grinding noise. It's more of a whoowhoowhoo or brushing noise that increases in speed with my...

    Hey all.. brain dead right now. Just trying to figure out cost of MPG increase. Not sure about everyone but where I live, the grades of gas are usually $0.10 difference. So for example right now... 87 = $2.79 ... 89 = $2.89 ... 91 = $2.99 So say I do a mod or change Octane that increases my...

    Hello everyone. A few weeks ago I was halfway done with a 2000 mile road trip, when I got my oil changed and tires rotated at a dealer in St. Louis, MO (it was a dealer I purchased the car at). After, I noticed an immediate average drop of 10mpg, which is just sickening. By the time I...

    Hi I'm considering getting a Mazda 3 2.2D sport NAV.. My only concern is the engine size when most of my mileage is on local roads... Can anyone advise what they get in the model on normal local roads? Thanks

    2015 3i Sport, 3k miles the electronic fuel gauge is garbage! when it's on E, I have between 2 and 4 gallons left. :surprise: so I got to thinking about estimating the # of miles left by multiplying the avg mpg for the current fill up x fuel tank capacity (13.5 gallons.) minus # of miles...

    in the Highway MPG thread, someone mentioned that he got on his 2.0: With cruise set at 65 mph, average mpg is 32.0 mpg. With cruise set at 63 mph, average mpg is 38.1 mpg. is 63mph the magical Holy Grail optimum point? and why does going 2mph more kill the mpg soooooooooo much?

    This issue had been bothering me for a long time and I would LOVE to get some input from you guys. I have a 2010 Mazda 3 iTouring with the 2 liter engine and auto transmission. A while ago I suddenly noticed that the car was driving draggy-- both when accelerating and when coasting. It almost...

    I have a 2015 M3T manual, and I am getting anywhere from 21mpg with not trying to baby it, to 22-24 mpg with trying to carefully watching the current MPG and making sure I am keeping it above 30+. It's rather annoying that I am fighting so much to try and get better gas mileage. My GF and I...

    I recently took my car into the dealer for service and received a nearly identical loaner, the differences being the loaner is a hatch and made in Japan. While driving the loaner I noticed that it gets much better MPG. I live in a city so my avg speed is 19 MPH, as is the loaners. However, the...

    Hi everyone! I need some help... I just got my 2012 Mazda3 SA Grand Touring, and although I'm in love with the car (more bells and whistles than I would've ever needed...cool!), I'm struggling with the gas milage on the car.
