  10. Real World MPG vs EPA Shenanigans

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    One of the reasons I bought my '13 Sky MZ3 is that Mazda has started to develop a reputation for getting better MPG than the EPA estimates. Other car manufacturers...not so much. In fact Hyundai/Kia just got slapped big time for conning the EPA (and more importantly the car buying public) with...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance

Being 4 years old, I figured a new motor mount couldn't hurt. This past saturday, I installed the Ford E-focus mount. The car actually...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    What are people getting on the highway with their new Mazda3's? The EPA listed it around 40/41 MPG highway but what are the real world results? If you want to list whether it's a hatchback or sedan, auto or manual trans, please make a thread post and state the specs.

  20. Matte Black Emblems & Badges - The real way to do it

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Last week, I went out and got a can of PlastaDip. After watching some videos and hearing how much people like it, I thought I would use it black out my badges. Well, after spraying down the front badge, I didn't like it. I'm no stranger to a can of spray paint, but this shit was impossible to...
