    Almost inevitably, lowering springs will increase ride stiffness, depending upon the spring rate. I did this with both my cars and because the MX5 springs dropped the car less than did the Eibachs in...

    When I had my 2001 Corvette, I could plug a 9-volt battery adapter cable into the cigarette lighter receptacle before disconnecting the old battery. This would preserve the radio and other settings....

    And.....never drive behind a vehicle that has giant knobby off-road-type tires. Large stones tend to get stuck in between the treads until you pull in behind the vehicle. That's when they let loose...

    Since your car is so new and under warranty, I agree that you should schedule a return trip to the dealership. Mazda 3s in the US have only 2.0 and 2.5 liter engines (new ones have only 2.5L...

    I would have the battery charged and load-tested to see if it is good. If it is, at least you can rule that out as a possible culprit.

    Yes, that's exactly what it is. It gets to a point where we have no choice - We WILL pay more to have 12 airbags, 30 sensors, and get at least 55 MPG whether we want to or not.

    If you drive on the highway for extended periods of time and intend to keep the car for at least 8 years, the either the 2019 3 or a used Mazda 6 or Lexus may be justifiable.

    Have you checked with Crutchfield? They can typically answer all of those questions. I've had great luck with them over the years.

    My iEloop battery lasted a bit more than 4 years. I think it would've lasted longer if the car were driven more often while I was working in Malaysia for one month. But hey, it was only $600 to have...

    This happened to me, once. I had left the car outside in full sun on a Summer day with no windshield, dash, or car cover to protect the electronics in the display and under the dash. Once I started...

    Welcome.
    You can see what I did by looking at my signature, below this reply. My 2008 MX5 is more heavily modified, Although because the MX5 has a true Cold Air Intake, I avoid driving it in the...

    Agreed. My wife has been driving her Lexus hybrid with CVT for more than 14 years now and I'd say that these transmissions are among the most reliable out there. Many of their vehicles have 250,000+...

    I owned an 89 MX6 GT for 14 years and one of the reasons I sold it was because of engine and transmission oil leaks. The cost to fix some of them was well north of the car's value. That is typical of...

    I agree that the 2.5 (which is the same engine my 3 has) has plenty of power. However, after driving a rented McLaren 570S (0-60 MPH in 2.7 seconds), my 3 seems to be a bit slower. :)

    If handling is your priority, consider the Porsche Macan. It is certainly a step up from your CX5.:)

    I rented a McLaren 570S twin turbo V8 in April. It's 0-60 is in 2.7 seconds. Needless to say, not many cars would impress me after that rocket ship ride. :)

    I think the 2.5 is an excellent engine. Would I buy a smaller, turbo-charged version with better fuel mileage and sportier seats and a quieter interior (compared to my 2014)? Yes, but not when my...
