    I am looking into installing a hitch on my Mazda 3. I wanted to see if anyone has installed a hitch on this particular year and any recommendations to which product they like the most for towing bikes and smaller trailers.

    Has anyone had experience towing with the 2.5L manual? I want to put a hitch on my sedan (against the better judgment of the owners manual) There's a genpu in my town that I see towing sleds occasionally, so I know it can be done. Just a matter on if it's reasonable or not.

    Hi! I am moving across the country (North to South) and have concocted a plan to install a towing package and pull a 5’ x 8’ U-Haul trailer with my 2012 Mazda3. I have a few questions... 1. Is this actually feasible? It seems to be, based on my research...but I have yet to talk to someone who...

    Have I blown $500? Having seen the availability of trailer hitches for my 6-speed manual-transmission 2014 Mazda 3 GT, and multiple YouTube videos, I believed towing my tiny (7'11") Dyer sailing dinghy to my daughter in Asheville, NC from New Bedford, MA (950 miles) would be no big deal...

    Hi all, I'm brand new to the car forum thing and I've already got questions. First, my car. 2016 Mazda3 hatch touring. Bought it with 6 miles in November 2015. Currently have 11,200 miles. Second, my burning question: I live in east Texas right now, and in December, I'm moving to Salt Lake...

    I just got back from a weekend track event towing a motorcycle with my 2014 Mazda 3 sT (2.5L motor) and wanted to share some of the process to hopefully help somebody else that wanted to install a trailer hitch for the purpose of doing some light towing. First of all, I used the great...

    Hey guys, I have 2014 Mazda 3 Sedan (FWD). I am moving from PEI to Edmonton, Alberta. I don't have much stuff (furniture or any heavy item) but enough that just car won't suffice. The biggest/heaviest item I have to move is 4 winter tires (one season old) with rims. I'm thinking of renting 4 x...

    Hello ladies and gentlemen, Would you say installing a hitch on the back of my 2010 3 2.2L Hatch (Automatic) would be difficult? Including the wiriing? Also, I'm dropped on Eibach Pro's, would I need to go back stock for the installation/towing of a small uhaul? Not sure if maybe I should go...

    I have been doing some research to determine if I could pull a small utility trailer behind a Hatchback without major problems. Mazda official statement for the US is "No". I found in Australia Mazda says "Yes". From website: Designed specifically for Mazda3, with a factory tested 1,200kg...

    So Mazda says no towing, but we all know that the aftermarket hitches are out there. I want to know if I could safely tow a single motorcycle trailer with bike on it a few times per year at most and short distances 20-80 miles. Combined trailer and bike weight would be ~650 lbs. I have a...

    I'll be moving about 900 miles in late July, from South Florida to Eastern Tennessee. I toyed with the idea of installing a hitch and towing a small trailer (an 8x10), but have decided against the wear on the vehicle (unless someone can tell me otherwise). Now the question is, front wheels up...
