  1. Windshield Wiper function - Manual Intermittent Vs. Auto rain sensing

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Here is my issue: I bought a used 2013 Mazda 3 GT (took it to a Mazda dealership before buying for inspection, they said everything looked good) but now having it for a week, I have realized neither the auto lights or auto windshield wiper functions work. Both have AUTO on the control stick and...
  2. Rain Sensing Wipers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have noticed that the sensitivity control (the plus + minus - dial) for rain sensing wipers seems to have little to no effect on the wiper rate. This has been especially true in misty conditions. What has your experience been with this feature?

    Hello, I have a 2014 3 iGT sedan. I was wondering if it's even possible to install/add-on the rain sensor for the wipers and the auto headlights (which I assume uses light sensor already built in for changing the display from night to day) Is this even possible? Anyone tried it? I'm...

    Has anyone noticed that they don't seem to perform very well in light rain? With a steady rain they seem spot on.. speed increases and decreases just fine. But when the drops are really small or light, the wipers behave erratically, often wiping the windshield when it is nearly dry and at...

    Hey hey! New Mazda 3 owner (all of two weeks now!) and I noticed an issue the other day that I haven't been able to fix or find an answer to beyond going to the dealer. I got the 2010.5 Graphite Moca hatchback grand touring, love it! So my problem. The window will go all the way down on...
