They suggested I replace the rotors as well as change the pads. Is this...

  4. Prematurely worn RR strut

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I noticed that my right rear strut was leaking fluid the last time I was cleaning my Mazda. Car has just over 20k miles (32k km) so I am bummed that it is already bad. I saw that another user on here had a bad RR strut so I am just wondering if this is a common issue. Good news is that it's an...
  5. Replaced Worn Factory shift knob

    2007-2009 Mazdaspeed 3 Performance & Mods
    PO must have worn jewelry a lot. The factory shift knob was pretty beat up around the chrome ring so I decided to replace it with a smooth round knob in a "red splash" pattern that I think goes pretty well with the Gen 1 MS3 interior. Not really a performance mod but it does feel a lot better...

    Hello all. So I have been reading about the issues the MS3 have regarding very uneven tire wear on the inner tires, esp. the front tires.

  9. Alignment issues/Tires worn

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    This summer I did put Eibach Pro kits on my 201 Mazda3 GT and also I added a Tri-Point sway bar. I have to say my car handles much better. After a week I got an alignment for it which I was told was in specs. In November I started noticing that my tires were making noises so without looking at...
