    Hi guys, So I’ve had my 2012 Mazda 3 Sport for a little while now and find it to be probably one of the best all round cars I have ever owned. The only problem I have struggled with is getting the steering wheel close enough to me in the right seating position so that I don’t have to strain...

    Hey All! Was glad to find such a big community of posters about these cars. I recently purchased a 2008 with about 70K from a friend whose mother'd been the original owner, and have been happy with everything non-mpg related about the driving experience, with the exception of one problem: at low...

    Hi All, I am looking to change the steering wheel in my 2014 m3 for one from a facelift model. Has any body tried this, and also then come across any issues? For example airbag sizes? Thanks for any help Mark

    Hello everyone, I have been trying to search the internet for a wiring diagram for the EPS circuit and where all the main grounds are located on the Mazda 3. I have a loose or broken ground somewhere that effects the power steering, dash, radio, hvac and sometimes shuts the car off.

    I must say feels way better than stock, and quality for a non branded wheel is great, priced at $285 landed

    Hey guys! Driving a Mazda 3 1.5l petroleum (EU Model) here :) my steering wheel emblem started peeling a couple of weeks ago and it just looks bad and disturbs me every time I drive. I googled a bit and found out that it's not that easy replacing it because of its location. Any tips about what I...

    Hello Zoom-Zoom fans - Today I put on a Wheelskin cover on my steering wheel. I love the oem wheel but I always do this to all my cars so that the day I sell it, I simply remove the cover and I get top dollar. Nothing looks than a pristine steering wheel when selling a car...

    Looking at the specs I can't find this option anywhere... did they remove it as an option?

    Early reviews are suggesting slower initial steering response from 2018 to 2019. Hope they haven’t gone too far with the new obsession on head toss. Car and Driver test: “Turn-in is a little sluggish for a Mazda, and the steering ratio could be quicker. Chassis engineers explained that the...

    Looks like a Heated Steering Wheel is not an option on ANY trim level. Nor is Homelink or Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirrow. Are all these items missing, or am I missing something?

    After mistakenly reversing poles when installing a new battery, I had to replace the main fuse, the TCM fuse and the room fuse. Once the car was started, we determined that the power steering went out. Both the power steering and the airbag lights are displaying. The dealer is recommending...

    Hi Mazda Fam, I just recently installed a suede steering wheel cover. This gives the steering wheel more grip and it looks sweet. Check it out here:

    Does anyone have experience using one of the ebay steering wheel wrapping kits on these cars? I traded in my 18 WRX for my 3 and I really like the interior except for the wheel not being leather wrapped. I am 95% sure I will be installing one of the ebay kits but wanted to see if anyone had...

    Dear all Car is a Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2012 model. At the weekend the power steering became very hard to turn after making a uturn. It has remained so ever since. No light appears on the dash and no error codes are present in the DTC. Fluid level is fine. Connected to a scanner it shows the...

    So one of the things I wish my 3 had was a leather steering wheel. Has anyone tried an aftermarket leather cover? How much thickness do they add? I kind of want one but I'm afraid that it will make the wheel feel fat.
