  3. 2015 wont start at least once a week

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    This is the third time now that this has happened to me. i have searched extensively for solutions to this issue but an actual fix has eluded me thus far. I push in the clutch, start button light and key light turn green, push the start button and the start light immediately turns amber but the...
  4. One week in with the 2017 Mazda3 sport

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi everyone. It's been about a week with my Mazda3 sport and just had some issues I'd like to see if anyone had the same. 1. No matter how slowly I ease my foot off the clutch pedal, there is a bit of a 'lurch' towards the end. Did anyone else have the same issue? I drove a manual GTI before...
  5. 1 week 1000km, first impressions

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Well last Saturday I took possession of a beautiful new 2017 Mazda 3 Hatch 2.5L 6spd manual in Snowflake White Pearl. I have not pushed it too hard yet as I want to wait until 2000km and ensure a good engine break-in period. A few km before I crossed 1000km curiosity got the better of me and I...

  8. Barely one week and hit while parked

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I mean really? Just one week old is my 2017 and don't even have permanent plates yet. Parked at work today and got a call about 10am this morning from co-worker that someone hit my car. This is the life in the big city Manhattan. You cant have anything nice if you work in the big city. Its just...

    Hi all! I just traded in my 2005 Mazda Tribute for a CPO 2015 Mazda 3 i Touring earlier this week. Been enjoying it so far, and I'm looking forward to playing around with the infotainment in particular (I'm a developer, so I'm very interested in seeing what kind of customizations are possible...

  13. Buying a 2014 MZ3 sGT this week help me decide!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have my mind set on a 2014 Mazda 3 s Grant Touring. It retails for $27290 MSRP (no tech package) which is good because the extra $2k is not worth it to me. The car is in great supply at every dealership and I have an employee discount + college incentive they are offering so I can get the...
  14. Any LA peeps want to rent me a roof rack and cargo box/basket for the week?

    Pacific West

    I purchased a white 5 door 2014 Mazda 3 sGT (without Tech Package) about 2 weeks ago.

  17. One week and a tank of gas later...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I've had my iTouring HB MT for a bit over a week and I put in my first tank of gas. 320 miles and 10 gallons. (3 bars left on the indicator when I filled up.) So, obviously, I'm calculating 32 MPG. (The car claimed 28 on the info gauge.) I spent all my time in town running errands and lots...
  18. Burning oil - about 1.5 oz per week

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have about 2,000 miles on a 2013 Skyactiv 2.0. It's been consistently burning oil and I've been filling oil at the rate of about 2 - 3 oz per every two weeks (or about 4-5 oz every 1000 miles => about 1/8 quart per 1K miles). How's your oil consumption rate? The oil is Mazda 0w20 with moly...
  19. Dealer: Drive every week, or battery dies

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, So a couple weeks ago I went to the dealership to get my faulty Bose system replaced on my 2012 SA. After a week of not driving it, I noticed the battery was dead. I jumpstarted it fine, drove it around. Following morning, its dead again. Today, I called my dealership, because I had...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    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...
