    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm in need of an ash tray and am not a fan of the cup holder filling pieces. I have a 2014 manual with the base stereo so I'm looking specifically for something that might fill in the blank spot between the cup holders and the stick itself or something I can put in place of the CD player (Or a...

    Hello! I got a 2015 Mazda 3 sports trim with 55k miles on it. Recently I've been having troubles switching the climate control from hot to cold.

    I have a 2008 Mazda 3 --- had an automatic start system put in in 2009/10. Pretty much out of the blue I started having problems with my door ajar light and power locks. I tried shutting all doors, repeatedly. I have disconnected the battery (for a short time) and reconnected it, and I have...

  7. Any of you have odd audio troubles at the end of songs? Weird MP3 tag troubles?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Here is a problem that I've noticed... it's extremely specific but I feel like surely someone else on here has run into this. Hear (read?) me out. Since the touchscreen in the 3 is so predominate, of course your going to want your MP3's on your flash drive to have full proper tags with album...

After the second time I got the light I went through and checked all my vac. lines and made sure everything on my Corksport SRI was...

It doesn't happen when downshifting either. I've been driving for 18 years, many of those in a manual...
