    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Luckily I am still under the powertrain warranty of 60k. Dealer is saying that the new trans they are installing has a 12k/1yr warranty. Is this normal policy? Feels like it should be more mileage. Should be done this week and will follow up here with details. Thanks in advance!

  6. New to Mazda 3 forums. 2015 sGT 6spd manual

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey everyone! About 4 months ago I decided to buy a 2015 Mazda 3 sGT hatchback manual for a daily driver. I got a deal that I couldn't refuse! The dealership had problems moving the car due to the 6 speed I think. Also, it has 80k on the clock but it was garaged and is in good shape. My wife...
