Does anyone now if the formulation changed for our cars to improve the durability of the clearcoat?
I have a 2016 Mazda 3 itouring (made in Mexico) which has 53,000 miles that while stopped at a red light completely shut off on me. The car is an automatic I was in drive and it was the weirdest experience. The battery light came on and so did the red airbag light. I pushed the brake...
I have a 2008 Mazda 3, I noticed the other night while driving behind my wife my tailight was out. I remembered Arathol reccomended these lights so I ordered them and gave them a shot.

On Friday, January 4th, 2019 as I was leaving work, my 2012 Mazda3 was unable to turn on when I set the ignition. I got the hood opened, checked the battery -- it was good. Used a boost...
Just took delivery of a 2018 Mazda3 GT with MT. It was time to replace my 22 year old Mazda Protege!
It seems automobile technology has advanced a bit during this time, though my old car did have a spiffy cassette player. :laugh2:

Some parts of my car were recently painted in Mazda collision center, they have painted the front and rear bumpers, also the hood. But when looking at it, I can see a slight difference. I know the color has a code in Mazda agency, so there is no way it can be wrong (they say)...
