  5. 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/

  12. Raybestos element3 short review

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I am not familiar with Stoptech and Centric and EBC reviews seem inconsistent. Got these because local Lordco has them, and is listed on Carid so seem legit enough. Summary: It works, quite grabby when cold, pedal effort linear when warmed up. Dust avg i would say.

  16. Vogtland Springs/Koni FSD Review

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I lowered my '14 s GT back in April of 2016 with Corksport/Koni Yellows. Two months later, I switched out the Corksports for H&R. While I liked the ride better on the H&R's, I felt the Yellows were too jarring and jolting. In December, I switched to BC Coilovers. Well, that was a mistake...the...
