    I don't think the Skyactiv X are available in the USA yet, not even on Mazda's website as coming soon. Only way would be test vehicles.

    Were you wearing seatbelt? I only ask as I have been doing it this way all weekend and it hasn't had any issues.

    Have you tried just hitting the gas when parking brake is on? I just read that it should just disable itself. I'm going to try it today.

    Yes that is what I did. That being said there still is 1 issue I see with this. While it helps for many situations, the autolock feature really should be more of a backup for the forgetful or those...

    Just as an aside Arrow is a known speed demon. I regularly get over 30 mpg combined and if it's mostly freeway driving, my record is 38 mpg. That being said you have to really work to get 38. 25-30...

    As I have told you, disabling the auto parking brake is not difficult. There is a set of instructions on how to disable that function and surely the dealer can disable that for you. I am not certain...

    Best advice is to really shop around. Not sure how easy it is to deal with dealers in Canada, but here in Los Angeles I just had a reserve auction with every dealer in town. Lowest price got my...

    Are you in a cold climate? First upgrade I would do is anything to protect the paint from rusting. My '05 3s was a rusty mess living in NE Ohio and Buffalo, NY. Honestly loved the car mostly stock...

    Just want to mention that this is a compact sedan not a sports car. Nobody is expecting it to "take" any kind of corner at 70 mph...

    I can't say I agree with it being difficult to drive at speed. Coming from a Honda Fit this thing is rock solid on even the truly awful roads in Southern California. Never thought I would miss NE...

    If you have a current Mazda you can try calling dealer and when you take your Mazda for service they can offer you a 2019 Mazda 3 loaner. Mine is just starting to have 2019 loaners so it might be a...

    How did you engage the emergency braking system during a test drive? Mine has engaged only once as the system decided I wasn't stopping hard enough, but I wouldn't say it was wrong to do so.

    What model year is the car? There is no quick and easy fix usually. It involves pulling the headunit, finding which cable goes to that speaker and testing it. Then you move to the actual speaker and...

    That is indeed odd. I agree with a few criticisms. Mainly the lane keep assist function. If you look at it as a system designed to keep you from driving off the road it works fine. If you expect it...

    It might be easiest to just turn this feature off. It was off by default when I got my car and honestly not a make or break one for me. The only complaint I would have is the awful layout of the fob....

    I think I saw this discussed in another post. The system is finnicky and not reliable. In order to work you have to stand right next to car for it to beep and then as you walk away it will beep again...

    I agree on them being later than others. We shall see what they show at the LA auto show. There tends to be a large display for Mazda, at least in previous years. That being said I am not sure which...

    Bought a Mazda 3 recently and drove to satellite dealer lot to pickup in a 2019 Mazda 6. They are worlds apart and the 3 is significantly more refined, quieter, more comfortable in every way. Wait...

    So issue 4 was fixed. The lug nuts were almost 50 ft-lbs out of spec and this was likely related to the recall. Sound is gone, but I will be wary of anything coming back.

    I should mention the MRCC as an amazing thing. In stop and go traffic this software makes things a breeze. It's not perfect, but as long as you pay some attention to the road at low speeds it works...

    Weird issues with 2019 Mazda 3

    So when I bought my car I really loved it, but the honeymoon is a little less passionate now. This is mainly due to annoying issues that I have had:

    Rattling from passenger side. Eventually took...

    Agree with above, though apparently the parking brake being on preserves the transmission so I understand why they did that by default. I personally can't get used to hold function so I haven't...

    Yeah I have same issue. It seems to work only if I close the door and stand next to it until it beeps once, then when I walk away it locks. If I close the door as I walk away then it is 50/50.
