  1. 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...
  2. Annoying squeaking sound coming from front at low speeds

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I installed BC N-29-RA coils about a year ago (with the help of a few friends). And recently, I've been hearing squeaky sounds coming from the front at low speeds, roughly under 20kph (even on flat roads). And I'm unable to identify the source of it. I suspected it was the coils. My mechanic...
  3. Humming noise at various speeds, 35, 50, 70MPH

    2012-2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I got a set of new Michelin PRIMACY MXM4 tires and notice a humming noise at certain speeds. It is very noticeable at 70 but gone at 60 or 80. It is also there at 35. Just tonight I noticed that it gets much louder if I swerve left in my lane and gets quiet on a swerve right. I was thinking...
  4. Manual Gear Shift Speeds?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm ploughing through the manual for my new 2.0 petrol manual six speed Mazda 3 prior to delivery. I don't see any mention of recommended gear shift speeds for normal driving (no boy racer recommendations thank you). I know you can tell from the car's response when to change and from the gear...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion

  6. Off and On Steering Wheel Shimmy/Shake at Higher Speeds

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've been noticing my steering wheel slightly shaking when traveling at higher speeds for several months now. However, it seems to happen off and on, and the shaking itself isn't extremely violent, but still noticeable. It only seems to start shaking at speeds starting around 55 MPH or faster...
  7. Singing/ whine sound at low speeds???

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    My 2014 S Touring has 25,000 miles on it. Original tires so this may be a tire issue I am not sure. I am hearing a whine/singing sound when I speed up and slow down and typically hear it at lower speeds. I don't think it is the transmission but not sure. Has anyone experienced this?
  8. Clicking noise at high speeds?!?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I have 2013 M3s and just recently got it a month ago. I haven't really taken it on the highway until recently and I've noticed once i start to hit 60 I can hear a clicking noise. The noise sounds as if it is coming from the driver side dashboard. I finally got use to the loud ass road noise but...
  9. Do's and Don't for Speeds?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Since this is my first turbo car I want to make sure I've got a grasp on what is OK and what isn't OK to do with the car. So far from searching the forum and internet it seems most recommend: Not boosting WOT in 6th gear Not going into full boost until above about 3000 RPM Do let the car cool...
  10. Previous generation Speeds seats fit 2010+???

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone have access to a previous generation Speed 3 to see if the seat mounts are the same as our 2010+ 3's?? I wonder if the airbag plug is the same too? I routinely see good prices on these and wonder if they would fit. I found a set of the 2009 seats with Alcantara for a great price...
  11. Hesitation at low speeds

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, I hate to sound paranoid, but I just bought a 2010 mazda3 sGT middle of March, and have been noticing something. I did a search on the forum, but couldn't find anything relating to it. My car seems to be really hesitant at slower speeds. I have to do a lot of stop and go driving in...
  12. Speeds are here

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Tustin Mazda reportedly has a truck coming in today with a couple Speed3's on board. I'll be there to hopefully pick up a velocity red tech 3, with a video review of sorts to follow within a few days. Check your local dealers, this could be the week.
