Hi Guys.

I bought my Mazda 3 2017 arund March 2016 from aun authorized dealer . My VIN number confirms the car's model is 2017, but what came to my attention is that , the engine nor the back of the car have the SKY-ACTIV symbol.

Every Mazda seller , (at least online) that offer Mazda 3 - Sedan 1.6 , seem to have SKY-ACTIV Technology.

But mine does not have it.

It is normal? whas I scammed by the dealer?

Thanks in advance.

Well, It sems I was wrong.

SkyActive , it seems, comes on 2.0 and up.

I feel conned nonetheless. I Paid $21k for it and for that ammout I would expect a 2.0 SkyEngine.

Thank you very much for your answers.

Really!!??

That is not a 2017 car. The grill/front emblem/hood is 2014-2016. 2017 has the redesigned front end.

Really ? Wow, if feel double scammed now. In my VIN number it says "H" on the 10th digit, meaning is 2017.

I'm confused now.

On the Nicaragua website the is no mention of the 3 having a skyactiv engine



Where as the 2 and CX5 are listed as having the skyactiv.






So it appears you have not been scammed.
