    Bought my Mazda new and had to replace the original battery in 2 years. I am now on my fourth battery all from my Maza dealer. All of our trips are short mileage, less than 4000 per year. Unusual?

    Probably a stupid question, but here I am asking it anyway. So basically what the title says. When I turn the ignition key to start the car, the key only makes it to the "on" position before the starter engages. The computer engages the starter until the engine starts then disengages the...

When I am listening to a radio station, the radio eventually jumps to the same station and remains stuck there for a varying amount of time before I can reset it to any other station.

    Hey all. I'm thinking about switching from the OEM 16" wheels to a set of 17" wheels. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking primarily for a better look yet still practical (economic/handling-wise should be comparable to OEM, does not need to be better).

    My 2015 S Touring has about 70k miles. Does the transmission fluid need changed? My research says skyactiv vehicles do not need changing. Just wanted to confirm my vehicle is a skyactiv one. Besides oil changes and air filters, what other regular maintenance should I be doing?

    HELLO So, I have done lots of research for my car on ways to get extra Horse and options are clearly limited for my car. I have got the short ram intake which sounds amazing and gave me (Maybe) a little more pep to my step. I have looked in too some aftermarket exhaust for my car and just cant...

    To keep things short this car is such an upgrade from the sport for not too much more with all of the incentives Mazda is offering currently. I am planning to do axel back exhaust, an OVtune and also getting better tires and sway bars. I’m hoping to get factory power down to the wheels and...
  15. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So to answer a question I’m sure much of you have, even though my 2.0 is tuned the 2.5 is still more powerful in the top end. My 2.0 currently has Headers, midpipe, axelback, and a SRI. It is tuned on 91 and e85 and although the 2.0 is faster to 60 the stock 2.5 just blows it out of the water...

    Hi everyone. There is something strange with my headlights switch. The headlights switch works on auto mode only.
