  1. Just noticed this....very interesting

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I'm in a manual, UK spec 3. Pull up at the lights and stop, keep foot on clutch (so not to engage the iStop) and the brake, after a few seconds the revs drop to about 500-600. Take foot of the brake and the revs rise to just over 1000. This looks to me like a anti stall measure. Quite clever...
  2. Noticed a strange metal strip on the passenger door sill

    Anyone know what this is (photos attached)?
  3. Hatchback owners, have you noticed this?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    The rubber around the rear glass started to shrink/recede about a year ago. Not enough to worry me but enough that I noticed it. Now it's worse and I'm pretty sure I need to address it. Have any of you experienced this? And if so, what have you done to fix it?
  4. Anybody else noticed any issues with making calls on Android Marshmallow?

    Instead of typing out this issue, I'm going to just post a video of said issue--as it will illustrate it much more clearly. I've tested this on two Infotainment versions (v.753 and v.650) and had the same issue. I've also tested it on a 2013 Hyundai Sonata and 2013 Ford Fiesta (Microsoft Sync)...

    my setup is pretty much a sri with heatshield and a cold air duct, stock cut maf housing. from standing still, acceleration is well..not as fast i'd like. But while cruising when I punch it to pass on the highway, it does well. is that what you guys mean by throttle lag?
  7. Noticed something very strange, does your car have this?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I noticed that in the rear wheel wells, on the right side (passenger side) there is what seems to be a cover near the back of the wheel well while on the left side, there is no cover near the rear.... Here is the Right side: Here is the left side; drivers side. (no cover) Is it the same on...

    i had all the windows down on the freeway going 70mph and noticed when i put up the driver and passengers windows up my car starts to shake because of the wind flowin through the rear windows. bad way of engineering?.
  9. Just noticed - No TEMP guage

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Did anyone else miss this omission before buying the car? I am mad at myself, as that is one of those gauges I prefer over a dummy light. Maybe I can mount a 3" one in the middle of the dash board? :tongue:
  10. Anybody else noticed the built-in wind deflector on the sunroof?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I just noticed that my 5 door GT with bose/moonroof has a built-in wind deflector that pops up when the sunroof is opened. Its probably not quite as effective as an aftermarket one as it doesn't go quite as high but its effective enough for me not to get an aftermarket one. If you want to see...
