  2. Sun Roof Fluttering Sound

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    It sounds like a fluttering sound, like plastic bumping on plastic (not the resonating sound wind makes with the rear and front windows open) when the sun roof is closed and the driver's side window is open about 1/4 of the way just to get a breeze. The sunroof works perfectly, doesn't leak...
  3. Couple of rust spots on roof

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I noticed some rust spots on my roof after washing and waxing the car this past weekend. They are small and was wondering how do I fix these? Thanks.
  4. Roof dings

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    It looks like the body panels metal sheet is becoming thinner these days. My 2017 Mazda 3 got few dents on the roof in the first month I owned it. It appears the dents are caused by eucalyptus tree seeds falling off the trees at my office parking lot. These seeds are about 1/2 inch in diameter...

  7. Silver with black roof

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've only seen a white M3 with the roof wrapped black, but not silver. Anyone else out there with a silver car but black roof? Looked really clean on the white one, almost like a tesla panoramic roof.

  10. 18 Hatchback Roof

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So... I've had my white 2018 GT for 7 days. On day 6, I left it at a hipster shop to tint the windows, then went to work. 4 hours later I picked it up, and noticed that the roof looked like a GOLF BALL. Dents EVERYWHERE. Not as noticeable on the hood, until I got home and parked it in the...
  11. New member, roof rack questions

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello M3 fans, I bought my mazda 3 GT hatchback in 2016 - it is a great car. My only wishes would be for a light turbo (don't need 300 HP, just a lower torque peak) and an upscale stereo option. This car won out for me over the VW GTI, and that is serious competition. I don't think the mazda...
  12. Best Roof Rack for 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    This question is asked before but I can't find one that answers my question. My 2017 Mazda3 GT Hatchback did not come with a roof rack and I'm in the market for one now. I'm not looking for anything heavy duty. I'll probably only be loading a paddle-board or skates on it. My priorities are...

  14. Roof rack spare parts

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am in search of the Yakima grub screw posts for the factory Whispbar style roof rack. These are the 4 threaded posts that go into the fixed mounting points on the body under the drip rails. I contacted Mazda directly and they told me they are not available separately. I'm sure I can grab an...

  20. Non OEM Roof Rack

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Just wanted to check if people here have non OEM roof racks and how they like them. I don't particularly like the look of the OEM ones (~$300), even though they do seem to be much cheaper than non OEM options (~$500). I think roof racks with the crossbar going past the towers just look much...
