  1. 2004-2009 Mazda3 Suspension & Handling
    G'day all, I am encountering a problem where occasionally my brakes decide to play dead. Where they go spongy, but hold pressure after a few pumps. After researching I have found that the fix is to trigger an ABS event to a complete stop, and in my cases this has fixed it. This problem has...

    Hi, I have a 2014 Mazda 3 Sport. Anybody had water issue with the rear seats, it's coming from around the fuel tank access panel. The seat was all wet and everything under it was covered with water. Thx

    I have a 2013 3 Skyactiv hatchback. We have been getting a lot of rain here in sunny CA. I noticed that the driver side footwell carpet and floor mat are wet. It appears that it gets more wet when I drive. Very wet. I do not have a sunroof. Does anyone have water issues and/or ideas where I...

    Does anyone else have this issue? When I wind down the drivers side window, and then wind it back up again, it comes out of the door wet! Has anyone else experienced this, should I be worried that there is a lot of moisture inside my door? or could this just be damp seals from previous rain?

    On wet days, when I pop my car in reverse, there is this squealing - it seems to resonate when in reverse and that makes it extremely loud in the cabin. Just wondering if anyone knows what it is and if its anything to worry about? There is some speculation in this thread but no conclusive...
  6. Buy / Sell / Trade
    Well the sad day has come, I lost my job and had to sell the 3. Ugh. However this sale does bring some good news, goodies for you to purchase. First off, Seat covers, Wet okole, Used approx a year but you'd never know it. They are custom made in Hawaii if you haven't ever seen them they're...
  7. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Although it wasn't a surprise from reading various posts in this forum, I found out today how puny wet traction is (and probably non-existent snow traction) on stock tires. The road was slightly wet from over-night rain.. I was doing about 25 - 30 mph on a slow curve when I felt the front...
  8. 2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    Yeah, just like the title says, I bought the car in February and the damn passenger side headlight is all foggy and has water/condensation in it. I am so pissed, I have had suspension go bad, a tensioner pulley and now a headlight. WTF. Anyone else with a 2nd gen had this problem?
  9. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hi, So, I was impatient about letting my CS SRI filter dry completely after washing it. It was very dirty. I left it outside over night to dry, but it rained and I forgot it out there. I tried to dry it with paper towel in the morning before I reinstalled it. Had to get to work! After driving...
  10. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've only had a few wet days here in southern california since I've had my 3, but I've noticed the clutch gets ridiculously slippery when wet. Is there anything to do to improve this, or is there a certain aftermarket pedal that deals well with rain?
