  1. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    From the outside of the car the system sounds like its really powerful but once you get it it's a whole different story. The sound system is the worst i've ever heard. The sound sounds like it's just in the speakers and doesn't fill the car. Zero sound comes out of the tweeters. The bass doesn't...

    Just got the oil changed at a local service place. I was going to do it myself, but time is short and I've got a big trip coming up. I looked at the receipt and noticed they had my 2012 Mazda3 Skyactiv listed as the Sport model, and used a Champ PH2835 filter, which Amazon says isn't compatible...

    It seems that the base model (with the SkyActiv automatic transmission) is significantly cheaper than the higher trims: It also has a tire size that's narrower and with more sidewall 205/60/15. I would imagine this helps the ride a little bit. The steel 16 inch wheels with wheel covers do not...

    I received an OEM interior light kit as a gift and decided to install it on my 2012 skyactiv yesterday. When I finished the install I turned the car on to check that it worked properly and everything worked fine. Today, when I went to drive, I noticed that the range on the MID was about 100 less...

    Okay I'm new to this and I have blue LEDs I want to hook up in my footwells using the cigarette lighter and I have read a lot of forums and walkthroughs about it but i don't know if I screwed it up or not. Instead of tapping in the wires because I have no idea how or what taps are I cut the...

    So, I was out with one of my ole friends saturday (first time he saw my 3). So, to "impress" him, I floored it :yes: When I floored it, it made a horrible sound, and a terrible vibration in the throttle. So, I pull over and check it. My intake had to be adjusted (had not checked it for a few...

    My engine will always go, "ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-spruuut!" during the first turn of the ignition. If I follow it up with a second turn at the ignition it will start normally. I used to have this issue during cold starts (I start the vehicle in the morning after being left off overnight) but now, it...

    My 2011 mazda 3 5-door manual sport 2.5L is about 3 weeks old now. My average gas mileage is 18.3. I do drive rather "spirited" but WOW 18.3 should I be worried? I looked around the forums and all i see are best gas mileage posts. Help?

    2010 MS3 with 5,000 miles on and all of a sudden I could not move the shifter left or right while in neutral. Basically I was stuck with 3rd or 4th gear. Happened on two occasions, both while driving. I called my dealer, took the car in. What are you thoughts?
