  1. Slow i-stop

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hi, today I drove a Skyactiv G 122 Hp Hatchback version with manual 6 speed gearbox. Everything was smooth, except the i-stop: it reacts too slow: if I depress the clutch it takes 2 sec to start the engine...(I think this is not beacuse the low mileage of the test car) This is way more quickly...
  2. Clunk When Slow Speeds

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello! I need some assistance. I have a clunk in my 2010 Mazda 3 that I am having a hard time pinpointing where it's actually coming from. Appears to be coming from the front (At times my mind is placing tricks its coming from the back) of the car when going over small bumps in the road at...
  3. Importing Contacts Too Slow?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey, So recently my wife has been driving our car more, I paired her iPhone 6s with the car. Now when I drive the car and the car detects that my phone needs to be connected, the contact import on the clock takes 45 seconds approx., I never really put attention to it just now but wow that is...
  4. S-l-o-w USB music

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just bought a 2018 GT hatch, Bose audio. The radio works fine, streaming music via Bluetooth from my iPad works fine, but trying to play music from an 8GB USB thumb drive is almost hopeless. I say "almost" because, if I wait long enough, the album list will appear, then a few minutes later the...

  6. slow acceleration, moves past 5k RPM (OZ Spec)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone Ive got a Mazda BL SP25 (2.5L) I bought this car with 160,000kms on the clock, I drive fairly aggresive, i notice that my car doesn't have much power down low, but i feel a kick up top @ 5k RPM, is this how the car should drive normally? I doubt it should as the power is felt as...
  7. Slow as a Snail Build

    M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    Hello, I will introduce myself as a new Mazda owner. Just picked up my 3 today from a private seller, and foglights from Mazda afterwards to do my first mod. I have a list of other mods, but they will come along as money becomes available. I will use this thread to record my progress and misc...
  8. 15' 2.0 Sky, slow to get going. How to improve?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I know this question gets asked a lot but find the biggest problem with my 15' 3 2.0 is the "off the line" power. It just doesn't seem to be there. Going up hills and even just daily driving around my city it seems to struggle enough to be annoying at times. Though as soon as I'm able to get...

    Bridgestone DriveGuard Run Flat Tires Accommodating, Comfortable and Safe Do you remember your last flat tire? Were you driving when it happened? Who were you with? I asked a coworker, Jenna, if she had ever experienced a flat tire while driving and this is what she recalled: “I was...
  10. Tap noise at slow stop or start. I Grand Touring.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey Guys, I am getting a single loud tap noise every time I come to slow stop and occasionally when I accelerate slowly after a stop. Happens when going uphill, downhill, and driving on a level surface. It has spent over 10 days at the dealer on 3 separate occasions now. The sound does not occur...
  11. Slow USB Loading

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello all, I just bought a 2015 Mazda 3 last week. Absolutely love the car, it's a brilliant little vehicle. If there's anything that's really bugging me though so far is that loading info on USB Devices seems to take quite a while and is just very unstable. Below are a couple issues I'm...

    M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    IanQ's 2014 i Touring sedan Hey everyone, bought my 2014 i Touring sedan back in March with 9 miles on her and she still sits bone stock, except for a Broadway mirror from one of my previous vehicles. Back in the day I had a '92 Prelude SI. I sold the Prelude and bought a '98 Civic...
  13. Slow manual acceleration in lower gears?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Anyone else have problems in slow acceleration for the manual I-Sport? Especially in the lower gears from 1st, 2nd and to 3rd gear - basing this on observation of relative speed of other 4-cylinder automatics passing by on the road - from a stop and go situation (ie. stoplight) I've been...
  14. Manual Newbie feels accelerate slow in 1st and 2nd gear

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Finally, I got my 2011 Mazda 2.5s Sport a few weeks ago. I had never driven manual car except in driving school before. I felt the car has great torque in 5th gear round 50 miles. But, when I start from 1st gear, I feel I have to quickly shift gear thru the third gear to get going. Otherwise...
  15. 2012 - 3 I sport cranks slow

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Anyone else notice when first starting their car if it seems to crank slow for a second than it starts fine? 2012 we just bought I noticed still has what looks like the OEM tiny battery (takes up 3/4 of the battery box and has symbols in Japanese on it) Wondering if I should replace the...
  16. Android Slow To Update

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey, My new Mazda seems to take 30-60 seconds to load any new text messages. The notification comes in immediately, however, it seems that in order to load the actual message it needs fetch the entire inbox from scratch which for me is somewhat timely.. Has anyone else noticed similar behavior...
  17. Leets' Super Sexy (and Slow) Build Thread!!

    M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    So I thought it about time to introduce you all to my car... especially since I almost never make it out to a meat or show that I'm not working at. So here she is, a '12 Black Mica 2.5L hatch with manual (because even if it's slow, it shouldn't feel that way). Sure I would've liked to get a...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Why is this site so slow to load, even switching thread to thread is snail slow. Sometimes I think I am having a nightmare andI am back to dial-up it is so slow. Please don't tell me it is my provider or computer as this is the only site I am having problems with. Pat
  20. cold weather slow starts

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anyone elses mazda start very slow and a little rough in the cold? The other thing is my car gets driven only about 1.5 miles each way to the train station 5 days a week. I think its the perfect distance to drain the battery from the starts but not have enough time to charge. However, I...
