    I'm managing to get only 23mpg in city driving. mine is a 2.5L 6spd. On an aggressive driving scale I would say I drive a 7 or 8. I still expected better gas mileage. There are 300hp V6s that are giving 21mpg so to be getting such low mpg in a SkyActiv is surprising. For comparison, I have a...

    Hi folks, I had the feeling that the sound of my Bose system got worse since the update to V56 (EU) a few month ago. I mentioned this at the German Mazda forum and some users which had the same update from V33 to V56, confirmed this feeling immediately. My dealer says, nothing has changed...

    I have the 2016 Mazda 3 GS (Middle tier 2.0 sedan) and it seems to me when I put more force on brakes when nearing a stop it seems to slip. Normal driving is fine but when I am a little more aggressive about 20km/h to 0 hard braking seems either the brakes lock up or poor tire traction I have...

    Hello everyone. Just bought a 2016 Mazda3 iTouring with MT, and this is my first-ever question. I thought the answer would be easy-peasy to find, but I've looked everywhere -- on this site and elsewhere -- and I can't find it. Maybe one of you fellow Madzites can help. My request is...

    Hi, I use a google Nexus 5, connected by Bluetooth. The problem is that the first phone call I make/receive is of poor quality. It's very noisy, just like static, it's impossible to make out what the other person is saying. I hang up and redial and everything is fine. I've upgraded the...

    I have the standard Bose installation in my Mazda 3, and must say that I am VERY disappointed with the sound. Has there been any malfunctions reported to the system? I am not an audiophile but I think there are several problems: - The stereo feeling is poor in the front. It seems like two...

    in general, i really like the car and how mazda has improved its materials and build quality. however i still see some panel alignment issues such as bumper is not aligned with the hood very well, this turns the hood into the leading edge instead of the bumper. the optional door sill plates...

    Hi Guys, I bought a new Mazda 3 , 2014 i-Touring ,automatic sedan, 3 weeks back and have driven around 500 miles. I mostly drive 25 miles a day. 20 miles to-fro to work and 5 miles to the gym. I do not idle the car, nor there is excessive breaking; there are only 2 signals in the entire...

    Bought my Mazda 3 back in September, first tank I got 42mpg and it has been going down slowly ever since. I am now down to 30mpg. Noticed my back passenger brake sticks occasionally and releases with a quick pump. My acceleration is also lackluster and I have to practically slam the gas pedal...

    I have a 2014 Mazda 3 Sport GS. The radio sounds good except the reception/signal is flakey. The high frequencies fade in and out. Has anyone else had that experience. It's barely tolerable.

    I have a 2011 mazda 3i touring with about 34k miles, for about a month now I've been getting awful fuel economy, approximately 15mpg city. As far as my driving habits are concerned, I do hit a few stop lights on my way to work, but very rarely go over 2,500 rpm as the speed limit is only 45...

    Just a heads up for anyone interested in getting the OEM Mazda3 all weather floor mats, they don't last long! I got my set from Mazda on April 2010, and I wore a hole thru the driver side mat a little over a year later. I drive an average of about 225 miles per week, and besides the fact that he...

    Anyone else find their low beams are poor. High beams work great but low beams are terrible. Seems like it may be poor design since I have heard that what I am experiencing is normal. Hope not and that someone can tell me how they corrected this issue.
