    Hey everyone, the company I work for offers its employees a corporate discount which offers me the chance to buy a new Mazda for only 2% over the dealer invoice. I'd like to know if anyone here has had the opportunity to benefit from a similar incentive or know someone who has in the past. I...

    Hello everyone, I have some questions about road noise. It has been over two weeks since I got my 2014 Mazda 3 i Touring Hatchback (w/ Tech Package), I am beginning to feel road noise fatigue every time I drive the car. By noise fatigue, I mean I would feel slight headache and my ears don't...

    Hey all! Initially, I convinced my parents to buy the '14 Mazda3 because of how it is the car of the year and came out on top of the competition, as per reviews. We got the following deal (confirmed and currently purchased): '14 Mazda GS (Canada) Convenience Package (w/ Rust Proofing which...

    Hi all, My name Jay and I am new to this forum. I wanted to get a few people's opinion on a possible purchase. First of all, 2 of my friends have 2010 MazdaSpeed3 and they both suggested I purchase one after I told them, and I am in the middle of a divorce so I figure I get something I really...

    Hey all, I'm looking to purchase a downpipe for my 2013 MS3. I was looking at the Corksport one and reading through when I realized that there's two different fitments for the exhaust. Being that there's a 65mm and 80mm, it seems like I'll be stuck with whatever fitment I purchase. Right now...

    I was going to wash/wax my new 2013 iTouring Hatchback, but once I started hosing it down, the water appeared to bead. I wasn't sure if the manufacturer or dealer applies wax to new cars or how long it should last. Should I wash/wax it anyway, or wait a month or so before doing so?

    Hey all! New to the forum and (soon to be) to Mazda. I've been slowly shopping around for a new car for the past six months or so and have come down to two choices: a Mazda 3 I Touring with an automatic transmission, or a 3 I Touring with manual. The only problem is I've never driven a stick...

    I'm possibly looking at replacing my 2003 Corolla with a new Mazda 3 hatchback. I'm looking at the i touring model. I'd be purchasing this as a commuter vehicle. It would eventually probably be passed on to my oldest daughter in about 6-7 years as her first car. Questions: 1) Is the automatic...

    Hello everyone, new to the site (for obvious reasons!). I'm considering picking up a 2010 Mazda3 i Sport M/T with 19K miles, but I've been reading a lot of horror stories about the premature clutch failures. I've also read a bit on these forums about ways to swap out the OEM clutch for...

    Hi, I'm looking for a new set of tires pretty soon. I currently have 35000 miles on my oem tires Yoko S34D's. The things I'm looking for in a tire is long treadlife , handling and a quiet ride. I would like to get a tire that has 60000+ mile tread life. So, far I've found the Yokohama avid...

    How do I reset the voice passcode? I've cleared all the BT profiles and can use the phone, however voice commands tell me to say the passcode, and won't let me say "setup > reset" or anything. How do I get past this without going to a dealer?

    Does anyone know if I can purchase a set of ballasts (or just one)? I purchased the DDM Tuning Slimline 55w ballasts a while back. I've had issues with flickering since the initial purchase. I have been back and forth with them and I received several replacements, but still no permanent fix. I...

    I took it for a test drive tonight after handling everything over email (definitely the way to go) and pretty much instantly said I'll take it. Probably one of the easier sells they've seen since most questions I had I looked up myself online. Will be the first manual I own (total time with...

    Just curious here, Saturday 2/20/10 I bought a VR 3s GT 4 door w/manual trans and Bose/Sunroof. I did notice the other day that the manufacture date was 12/08... 12/08? My car is already over a year old? That to me wondering, what was your purchase date versus manufacture date. You'll find...
