  1. 2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    I bought a 2007 hatchback 2.3 back in March and it’s been amazing to me. I drove it across country, and I also use it for work, but I’m afraid my neglect is catching up to it. I’m not super knowledgeable on cars beyond changing brake pads and oil, but I’m broke right now and I’m going to have to...

    Wow I’m at 60k and found out that the dealer did a crummy brake jobs. When I had a brake job done the car still had some weird squeak when braking. I just changed my brake and lubed the pad like how it should including the contact area that touches the brake hardware and piston. A month in, and...

    Just recently a problem occurred where something in my suspension is squeaking(like rusty springs in an old mattress) really bad. At low speeds you can hear it pretty badly; it disappears when I accelerate but as soon as I lift my foot of the gas it comes back. I have had corksport lowering...

    This past year my 2010 (76,0000 miles) has been making a loud sound related to wheel speed. Sounds like I have huge lugged snow tires on it. Could this be bearings? I could take to the shop, but I'm afraid of the an$wer... Anyone else experience this?

    I have a 2013 SkyActiv Sedan. I lowered it almost 2". The car was driving fine no issues till after this. The steering wheel vibrates a little (not bad) intermittently. There is a rotating noise now coming from the front passenger wheel, almost like a high spot on the rotor. And now the...

    Hi, I'm asking for your help, as perhaps somebody has encountered the same problem as the one I've been having. I have a 2016 Mazda 3 with the i-ACTIVESENSE package and lowered springs, now for the last 3 month I started noticing a very small rattling noise coming fro the upper console...

    Hey all, New to the forums. I'm hoping someone can possibly point me in the right direction before paying nth number of diagnostics from dealers to figure out the issue i'm experiencing. '10 Mazda 3 - When the car is cold, as I go to engage or disengage the clutch, more suddenly then slow, I...

    Recently my mazda 3 2013 skyactiv sedan started making weird noises in the front passenger side. I think it has something to do with the steering, because the sounds get louder when I turn. It's kind of a humming noise. And I noticed it's quieter as I go over 50km/h probably because of the...

    I've had my car since February of 2014 and the creaking and cracking noises from the plastic parts of the dashboard are getting so annoying. Would I find these kind of noises in other similarly priced cars ($19-$25K range)? I love and appreciate the way the Mazda drives but I'm thinking that I...
  11. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Recalls / TSB / SSB
    I've had my 2015 S grand touring 3 since September 2014. Basically since I hit 1,000 miles the center console area makes these random snapping, popping, cracking noises. It happens even when the car is not moving or off. I'd imagine it's the plastics shifting around but I'm curious if others...

    recently after we lowered my car it rubs. Everytime I go over a bump (even if it's little) the front right of car makes a loud apart scrapping noise. It's not my front bumper hitting the ground. It's coming from in the wheel well. Can't figure out what it's hitting. My fender liners are cut so...

    I brought my 3 into the dealer for an oil change yesterday and when I arrived I was asked if I wanted to do their "recommended" intermitance inspection along with wheel rotation, filter change, wheel alignment check and a few other things. I agreed and all was well. Upon leaving the dealer I...

    Hey Guys, I'm getting a rattle or almost like a whining noise when the RPM gets into 4-5 thousand + it gets worse as the RPM gets higher .Any ideas what that could be. It doesn't sound normal to me but then again Ive never driven a Mazda until 2 months ago. i don't always shift at that high...

    Put konis on my car recently and afterwards the brakes are chirping while driving and during braking it sounds like a thinking noise as the car slows. I popped the rotor off the driver side and some rust had gotten knocked loose behind the hat and I cleaned it off and it was fine. I did the same...

    The good news is the 2014 Mazda3 shouldn't have many rattle or noise issues. It's built so well with very good materials, but there will always be a few that pop up. In my car there's a slight vibration coming from the dash, but it's very faint. It's not loud enough to annoy, but I know it's...
