    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Does 2019 mazda 3 come with 3 years Sirius XM Traffic Plus? My 2019 CX5 come with 3 years of Sirius XM Traffic Plus, but my 2019 mazda 3 said that my subscription is expired. I did purchase the navigation sd card. I also contacted Sirius XM and they told me that my car only have 3 month of radio...

    Hey ? We just got a the new 2019 mazda3 Hatchback for our Daughter....... it’s a beautiful snowflake pearl white on Red I have not had a chance to drive it but it is gorgeous. Not that I would give up my M3 Tesla Model 3 P3D ?. She didn’t want an electric car so this was the next best thing.
  5. couple of odd quirks/issues with 2019 3 Premium sedan

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I've had my new Mazda 3 premium trim for about 12 days. Beautiful car, love driving it, but a few odd things have happened - 1. On really hot days, my rearview mirror glass has come loose (once)/fallen out completely(once). My dealer is replacing the mirror - I suspect, judging by some posts...
  6. Premium Sedan interior-- where is the griege?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Just doing a search of cars.com in the Seattle area, there are no premium sedans with greige interior. Just black interiors. There are a few Preferred sedans with the greige. Are folks in other parts of the country seeing the same thing? Is it worth getting the car in Preferred (in...
  7. Gen2 Speed3 Wheels on 2019 GT Premium

    2019+ Mazda 3 Wheels and Tires
    Hey fellow Mazda owners, I just wanted to get people’s opinion on whether or not my current cars wheels, 18 inch Gen2 Speed3, may have any clearance issues on my new 2019 Mazda3 GT Premium (on order)? My concern is that these rims are 225 width and the stock 18 inch wheels are only 215. I know...
  8. Preferred vs Premium

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Right now I'm shopping around for a Mazda 3 and I'm really struggling to figure out what I really want in my (possible) new car. I'm torn between the sedan and hatchback (leaning more towards the latter though :wink2: ), but the biggest thing is trim level. I really would like a Premium, but a...
  9. Car & Driver review 2019 AWD Premium Hatch

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    7.0 0-60 for the FWD and 7.2 for the AWD. They still called out the 2.5 though. Still looks like a car of the year contender. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a27073458/2019-mazda-3-awd-hatchback-by-the-numbers/
  10. Mazda3 GT Sedan Premium Photo

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Picked it up yesterday. Had to wash it again today before going to take a few photos. The covered bridge in the background was featured in the movie 'It' last year (Stephen King). Loving the car so far! Zoomzoom
  11. Just test drove a 2019 Premium FWD hatch.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Earlier today I drove the 2019 premium hatch FWD automatic. I drove my 2018 GT HB auto about 55 miles to the dealership where I did the test drive, so it was a nice back to back experience. My test was pretty extensive, I drove it about 70 miles in various conditions, about 30 miles on the...
  12. Underpowered is not premium.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    The Redline review really shows the glaring deficiency of this car. I doubt getting closer to sea level will make much of a difference. The AWD with it's extra 200 pounds is one of the most sluggish cars in the price range. Sadly the addition of the 2.5 turbo would put the price for an AWD...
  13. 2018 MAZDA 3 GT SPORT PREMIUM HATCHBACK - adding amps and speakers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    INFO FOR ADDING ADDITIONAL AUDIO AMPLIFIERS AND SPEAKERS TO YOUR MAZDA 3 2018 GT SPORT PREMIUM HATCHBACK Hi Guys! Well here I am driving my deliciously brand new car, I totally love it, but sadly I have no RCA pre-amp audio outputs provided by the OEM to help me make even more noise along with...
  14. Octane Wars, is Midgrade or Premium worth it?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    *Disclaimer, the entirety of this discussion is based off oem factory tuning and my altitude locally is 3573feet above sea level* So about 3 weeks ago I decided to take a stab at using Midgrade 89 octane(no ethanol) in my 2017 2.5L Mazda 3 just to see if I noticed any difference. A few days...
  15. Add on Premium Package components?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I recently got a new 2017 GT to replace a 2014 iGT that was in a wreck. I opted to not get the Premium package because I have a manual transmission (and you don't get a discount since you don't need paddle shifters), and I personally never used the navigation system in my 2014. However, some...
  16. Mazda--an artisinally hand-crafted premium brand??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    The Hipster Marque? Mazda Is Selling an Identity Along With Its Cars "Mazda is like that artisan pizza place or a craft brewery your coolest friends all like. They make a familiar product, but there is definitely something different about it. While you can’t always place your finger on it, that...
  17. I made the mistake of putting in premium gas and now I can't go back to regular

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I drive a 2015 iGT HB for a daily and it's working out for my commute. A bit boring at times due to having an automatic tranny but when you need someone else to drive the car back home for the bar, there's no worries about the DD not being able to drive stick. I've been getting good MPG on my...
  18. Premium Cloth Trimmed Seats

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am looking into the new 2016 Mazda 3 i Sport, but with the preferred equipment package. I was wondering if any one knows the difference between the standard cloth trimmed sport seats and the "premium" cloth trimmed sports seats that are included with the preferred equipment package. I cant...
