    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Everyone knows the leatherette seats on the 3 are swampy, but my biggest problem with them is how sticky they are. Ingress and especially egress are a pain. I have applied various conditioners, Pledge, etc, with mixed but always temporary success. Does anyone have a more long-term or even...
  3. Sticky clutch: 2012 Mazda 3 GS Sky 57,000 km

    Hi, I just went for a test drive with a 2012 Mazda 3 GS Sky (57,000 km) and I noticed that the clutch is somewhat sticky at the end of a press/beginning of a release (last/first 20% or so). I observed something similar with a new 2016 Rio sedan that I tried a few days before. Is this an actual...

    Any chance the admins can sticky a fog light options page? So we can compile a list of all the fog options rather than spending hours combing through a list? Personally, I'd like a halfway decent set of LED Yellow Fogs.
