  1. Water Streak After Washing

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have notice on two occasions after washing my 2014 GT Hatchback that water continues to run down the passenger side front door for several days leaving a brown streak all the way down the side of the door. The car sat in the garage for a day after washing it before I took it out for a drive...
  2. Low Water Car Washing Suggestions?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey All. An Official Drought has just been declared in California so we are mandated to reduce water consumption by 20% and washing cars is highly frowned upon. I don't want to waste water unnecessarily and certainly don't want to draw the wrath from my neighbors, but my baby is only two weeks...

    I spent about 2-3 hours (Hand hurts like hell...) Waxing our 3 on Sunday (Yesterday) and now I'm wondering with the upcoming week how long the wax will last and what happens if I wash the car, will it come right off? I used Turtle Wax, this one: Amazon.com: Turtle Wax T-223 Super Hard Shell...
  6. Washing floor mats?

    Been in Texas for 7 mos. and don't eat barbeque as much as I thought I would, so I was craving some last night and went to go pick some up. On the way back, I have to turn around on a 60 mph highway and the left turn lane is only 5 ft long (exaggeration but it was short) so there was some"...
  7. Brand New 3 Sport GT-E

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey Guys, I just got my Mazda 3 Sport GT-E last week and I have washed it twice already - possibly a third time after today! Is this going to kick the shit out of my paint? I am extremely worried about doing more harm than good - but I dont have a garage and have to park outside so it gets...
