Model News

The Mazda3 gets a complete redesign for 2014. The "big smile" grill has been replaced with a more serious, if still "pleased," front end, while the rest of the car receives a thoroughly modern and quite unique reworking. A new engine at the top of the model range has been added, replacing the old 167-horsepower unit, while a regenerative braking system has also been introduced to aid fuel economy.


Value Writeup

Mazda's goal with the Mazda3 has always been to offer the most fun to drive compact car on the market. The Mazda3 directly competes with some of the best selling cars on the road including the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. With a base price below $17,000 the Mazda3 is competitively priced while still maintaining enough upscale features to not feel like an economy car. With a sportier and more direct driving feel than its competitors, the Mazda3 is able to do everything typically asked of a compact, while still putting a smile on the face of drivers.


Model Highlights

The all new Mazda3 comes with one of two engine choices, both utilizing Mazda's SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY to increase fuel economy. The base engine, available on all 'I' models is a 2.0L 4-cylinder unit that makes 155 horsepower and is capable of up to 41 mpg on the highway. It's connected to either a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. The optional engine, available across the "s" range, is a 2.5L 4-cylinder capable of 184 horsepower, a fairly high number for a compact. Despite its power, the Mazda3 is still able to achieve up to 40 mpg on the highway with the more powerful engine when equipped with Mazda's i-ELOOP regenerative braking system. The more powerful 2.5L engine is available only with a 6-speed automatic.

The Mazda3 is available in two body styles, sedan or 5-door hatchback, while each body style is available in several different trims. The most basic trim, the Mazda3 i SV is available only as a sedan. The rest of the trims, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring are available with either body style. The larger 2.5L engine is only available on Touring and Grand Touring models.

The Mazda3 i SV may be the least expensive trim available, but it does come with some significant features, further increasing the value quotient of the vehicle. Standard features include power door locks and windows, 16-inch wheels, keyless entry, push-button ignition, body colored door handles, air conditioning and power-folding external mirrors.

Sport trims are available in either body style and come standard with body colored outside mirrors, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, illuminated steering wheel controls, a 60/40 split rear folding seat and a tachometer.

The Touring trim adds heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, a leather steering wheel and shifter, a rear armrest and cup holder and a blind spot warning system. Also available on the touring trim is the Technology package, which adds a 7-inch full color, touchscreen display, a navigation system, a rear view camera, a 9-speaker sound system, two USB ports, voice recognition, internet and satellite radio integration and a compartment for sunglasses. Any buyers who order the Mazda3 s Touring with the more powerful 2.5L engine will get all of the features included in the technology package as well as a few extra goodies like bi-xenon headlights, fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

The Grand Touring trim adds leatherette seating into the equation along with a moonroof and heated front seats. Like the Touring trim, buyers opting for the more powerful engine will get even more features in Grand Touring form. Items such as automatic headlights and windshield wipers, an auto-dimming mirror and leather seats come standard on Grand Touring trimmed Mazda3 s models.

Safety features are plentiful and include six standard airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control. The Mazda3 also features a collapsible steering column to help minimize damage in front end collisions and a hill-start system to minimize rollback when starting on a hill. Optional safety features include rear view cameras, a blind spot warning system and Smart City Brake Support, a system that uses a laser to detect forward collisions.

Summary
Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mazda3 vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through December 18, 2013, and model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured May 20, 2013, through December 4, 2013, and both equipped with a 2.5L engine and a regenerative engine braking system. When driving the affected vehicles in heavy rain or in deep puddles, the alternator belt may slip causing the Power Control module (PCM) to incorrectly assume failure of the charging system.

Consequence
Once the PCM assumes that the charging system has failed, the vehicle will stop charging and could result in poor acceleration, loss of steering assist and windshield wiper operation, and a possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM with updated software, free of charge. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7314D.

Summary
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain 2014-2015 Mazda6 and 2014-2016 Mazda3 vehicles. Water could possibly enter the brake caliper causing the parking brake actuator shaft to corrode and possibly bind.

Consequence
If the parking brake actuator shaft binds, the parking brake may not engage or disengage fully. If the parking brake does not engage properly, the vehicle may move unexpectedly if it is parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will check the parking brake actuator shafts, replacing any that are corroded, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 21, 2017. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 1217F.

Summary
Mazda Motors North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Mazda3 vehicles manufactured January 4, 2014, to September 18, 2015. The fuel tank of the affected vehicles may have been improperly handled during manufacturing and, as a result, the welded attachment of the Inlet Check Valve (ICV) may fail and allow fuel to leak.

Consequence
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Mazda will notify owners, and depending on the tank lot number, dealers will inspect the ICV weld, replacing the fuel tank, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 1, 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 0116I.
