    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey everyone, 2014 Mazda 3 GS I'm having an issue with my audio system where my speakers are making a constant popping sound when the car is turned off. When I turn on my car, it will go away - however, there will be times where there will be no audio coming from the speakers. I haven't...
  2. Popping when turning

    Suspension / Brakes
    So within the last week or so I've noticed popping when I turn the wheel past about 1/4th and then back in line. Only happens while in drive and normally after I've moved a few feet. I've read somewhere that someone else had this issue as well and found out it was the struts. I wanted to ask...
  3. P0302, cylinder 2 misfire, keeps popping up

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I have a 2012 skyactiv. I'm getting this code which suggests a cylinder 2 misfire was detected. 95k miles. NGK Plugs have maybe 10k on them. I never got this code before doing the plug change, but now it comes and goes from time to time. I'm noticing no performance issues. If I clear the code...
  4. 2015 6MT popping out of 5th

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Bought a 2015 3 i Sport last month, 60k on the clock. On the way home from from the Toyota dealer where I bought it, it popped out of 5th gear. This happens nearly every time I drive it now if I linger in 5th, but not every time. I've taken it to the Mazda dealer twice. They haven't been able to...

  6. Jump Start via popping clutch

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2015 manual. Battery was completely dead this morning. Old skool said turn on the ignition, engage clutch, 1st gear, let go of clutch & she'd start. I've done this a number of times on older cars. Anybody ever do it with the push-button start? Without power, how do you get it into...
  7. 2010 5-door is popping hatch

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Started last night. When I stop the car, park it and turn it off all the sudden I can hear the mechanism in the hatch latch just going nuts without me near it. Keeps me from being able to lock the car. Any ideas?
  8. Infotainment Popping Sounds

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I have always noticed strange interior sounds like from the door handle area where that plastic piece covers a screw when there is a lot of bass. Which I still haven't fooled much with to try to fix. Now it seems that the infotainment unit itself or somewhere in that general area is making...

    I noticed recently when I'm going at low speeds and turning theres a soft pop noise on the drivers side near the tire. Its only when I'm turning at low speeds. I have a 2014 S GT, does anyone know what it might be?
  10. Clicking from aftermarket head unit with Bose system?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The guy I bought my 2010 hatch from put in the aftermarket head unit (a Pioneer, if it matters) and aside from it being kinda low-end, it did the job well enough. He didn't opt for the steering wheel control module, so that's just dangling back there. Anyway, yesterday the audio started to go...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Has this happened to anyone? It keeps coming out, it looks like the clip is broken. Anyone have any ideas to fixing this? I thought about glue maybe but I don't want it to stick to the window. I'd be fine with just buying a new one, but I have no Idea on where to get one from. Any help is much...

    Our car is a 2013 SkyActive Hatchback Grand Touring 6 speed built in Feb. of 2013. We passed our 2004S Hatchback 5 speed to our grown son. We’ve had the new car about 2 months and are getting accustomed to the lower torque of the 2 liter. Our MPG runs about 36 in mixed driving. This car does...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    I've had my 2013 mazdaspeed3 for about a week. When I pulled into the driveway today I noticed the exhaust making a popping sound a little bit. Is this anything to worry about? Or normal?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So within the past 3 weeks ive been hearing this popping noise when i put it in reverse and turn the steering as im backing out. Also the popping noise only occurs within the first 5-10 ft of backing up. It only happens when the car has set for 20min or more and i go into reverse first not...
