    I haven't seen a top speed thread yet for the 2014s. I know people tend to get it for the efficiency, but come on, it's a Mazda! Anyway, last week I took a road trip to Wisconsin. In Kansas on I-70 I tried out my top speed and got to 124mph. I think I could have pushed it a little more, but...

    Howdy all, I am new here and have been looking through the forums. I have not seen anyway figure out an alternative to the crappy alarm clock looking stereo on the dash. Has anyone modified this or know of something that will work? I don't want the infotainment center. I just want something that...

    New to the message boards. I purchased a 2012 Mazda 3 in July 2013. It was a overstock at the dealership. I noticed the other day that under the hood, on top of the strut mounts there appears to be a clear looking grease type substance. I don't think I have seen that before on a car and I am...

    What is the fastest you have gotten your Mazda3 Skyactive car up to? Specify Sedan, Hatchback, AT ot MT. I have a MT Sky Hatch and have only been able to get it up to 110-115MPH. It will do 100MPH no problem but anything after that takes forever.

    Hey, did you see that MazdaSpeed3 (I think it was a 2012) was featured on the Top Gear episode last night?? I think it was about cars under 25k new to go to 150 mph. I think Rutledge was driving it.

    Guys, After installing RM springs, did anyone experience it moving in the top perch when turning? I recently installed 1.25 RM's and i'm experiencing this on the driver side front. It appears as if the perch/top hat is not spinning when turning, so the spring turns instead. Alternatively, does...

    Score:13/20 The original Mazda3 MPS managed the intriguing feat of being very interesting on paper - a 256bhp hot hatch, the most powerful production front-drive car in the world - yet dull both to look at and, in comparison to its rivals, drive. It was launched in a more innocent age, way...

    Drum roll please! The 2011 Mazda 3 is the latest vehicle to make it as a Top Safety Pick, after earning the top rating of good for roof strength in rollover crashes, as well as for front, side, and rear crash protection. The sedan/hatchback drove away with a Top Safety Pick in the small cars...

    Hmmm i was wondering if anyone tried putting a pearl white vinyl on the hood, top, and trunk of a m3 black mica sedan (covering those areas) ? I'm curious if its looks nice or not. What do you guys think? A good idea or no?
