Hello all! I know the forum world always loves an introduction post, so here I am!
I bought my 2014 mazda 3 iTouring - 6MT back in December 2015. I bought the car as my DD after totaling a Dodge Neon (and suffering with that car for years)
I typically work on my own vehicles, which include a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder 3.0 4x4 5-speed and a 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 750. I have years of backyard/shadetree mechanic experience with my dad and buddies and am always working on something EXCEPT FOR THIS CAR.
I've had the car now for about 1.5 years and have currently done zero of my own maintenance as it's still under warranty (43k miles to date). Full synth oil changes at the dealership are a reasonable price, and they always update me with the latest TSB's or ECU flashes. With all the work I do on my project cars, this is my "take it to the shop" car to be reliable and keep me sane
I'm joining because I'm interested in getting deeper into this car, but I'm not so sure this forum is as active as the motorcycle forum I frequent! I'll try to add some content with my findings on this car as I go through repairs and such as I'm having some speaker and vibration issues, but that's for another thread!
