  2. Worst nightmare, one of the valve cover holes that hold the coil pack cracked...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I was changing my spark plugs and on the 4th plug (the far left one) when I was loosening the coil pack bolt (the things where the two engine cover clips are attached to) to change the 4th plug the bottom part cracked.

  7. Mazda ranked 2nd worst in brand perception by Consumer Report

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Not sure if this is right place, but since Mazda includes our 3, I decided post it here. Chevrolet, Ford, and Subaru jump in brand perception- Yahoo! Autos Article Page I don't think Consumer Report is geared toward C&D, MotorTrend crowd and this report doesn't mean much to us but can you...
