  1. Weak A/C

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    My new 2019 Mazda 3 Sedan has the weakest air-conditioning of any car that I’ve owned in recent memory. I’m taking it into the dealer tomorrow to have it checked. I hope it’s just low on refrigerant and if it is I hope there’s no leaks in the system. I really don’t want some BS answer about it...

  3. Bi-Xenon headlamp uneven and seemingly weak?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have a Mazda 3 GT MT and the headlamps are super weak at night. Even with the highbeams they are incredibly weak and i sometimes have trouble seeing further distances at night. Also the left beam seems to be lower than the right? Anybody else experiencing this?
  4. Weak Rear Defroster

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    It seems that the rear defroster is very weak and takes a long time to clear the rear glass. The side mirror defrosters work normally. The rear glass gets warm but it takes a while. The voltage readings on all the lines of the grid read correctly. Has any one else experienced this?
  5. Brand New Mazda 3 with weak brakes?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    My mother decided to buy a new Mazda 3 while I was away at college. My roommate has a 2014 Mazda 3 which I've driven many times and am quite impressed with so I advised her that it was a great car. She bought a gray Mazda 3 about a month ago. A few days ago she filled out some survey for the...

  7. Weak seat heaters?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Now that it's sorta cold I've been trying to use my seat warmers on my 2015 sGT hatch. They suck. Even on the three lights (max) it takes forever and barely gets warm. Anyone else??
  8. 2015 Hatchback rear floor- weak

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi Guys, just picked up my 2015 hatch iT this week. So far, i like the car. I was about to put my dog in the back to go visit the dog park, but the rear hatch floor seemed way too fragile for even my 60lb dog. It looks like its just some plastic/foam board with carpet on top. With the...
  9. Weak brake pedal

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Suspension & Handling
    Hello guys, I hope you can help me. I have a 2007 Mazda 3 and the brake pedal feels weak. The mechanic said that there was need to replace all pads and resurface the rotors, but after this he decided to replace the brake master cylinder because the pedal was still weak. After bleeding air he...
  10. problem: mazda3 won't start, security light flashing red, power weak

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Didn't have any problems with the car until today. No idea if it's the alarm/immobilizer, battery, or something else. It's a 2010 Mazda3. I'm hoping to avoid towing it to the Mazda dealership, although at this rate, it looks like I might have to. -Walked up to the car and noticed it took...
  11. Extremely weak headlights?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, does anyone else have this problem? The headlights are really weak in my opinion. On low beam, the light doesn't even light up the floor much. On other cars, when on low beam you can see a lot more. Is this just with Mazda cars?
  12. Weak side skirt clips

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    The clips that hold on the side skirt have snapped without any hit. Upon closer examination they seem really weak. The 3 that snapped are the first three oblong the side. My main question is should I use dealer supplied clips to reinstall? Will an auto supply store have stronger ones? What...
  13. Weak heated seats

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    My impression of the heated seats is that the bottom areas are decent but the back areas are pretty weak. The driver's side seems OK at the highest level but the passenger side feels really subtle to me (particularly the back). Don't know if it's just me but it's quite a difference from the...
  14. Weak A/C?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    It's finally getting warm in LA this week, and I just started using my A/C and am kinda underwhelmed by it's performance. Even on the "max a/c" setting, the air coming out is definitely cool, but it's for sure not the blast of cold air that was coming out of my '04 civic. Is anyone else...
  15. Bose SUB extremely weak?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi guys, I have the 2010 Sport HB with the bose sound system. The sound quality is good enough for me, but I can barely hear the sub in the back. 99% of the bass comes from the front speakers, which is not a lot. If I put my hand on the sub I can feel it vibrate, so I know its on, but the...
