Just bought my first new car -2012 Mazda 3 hatchback skyactiv

Hello all!

Just bought the car 3 weeks ago and love it!

I was looking for a car that has high performance and good on gas, I think I chose the right car.

Details:

-2.0L 6 speed automatic skyactiv hatchback
-i bought it off the lot and came with moonroof and front heated seats

My last fill up, with 2 bars left on the gas meter, I got 980kms out of it. (super unleaded) which calculates to over 40MPG. (refilled tank with 1 bar left and drove roughly 15kms to get to gas station on that 1 bar)

pretty happy with that!

anyone have thoughts about installing the anti-corrosion module?

I probably will, just want to know your thoughts about that system. If I do, even though the price is steep, i'll get it done at the dealership just to be safe.

welcome to the forum, i live in vancouver bc, you may or may not know I also have a post up too( in the consumer reviews section) also on this link as well - toronto mazda3.ca

http://www.torontomazda3.ca/forum/sh...-TRUE-or-FALSE

under the mazda3 general discussion part

questioning " 1000 km per tank of gas on the skyactiv 2012 mazda 3 advertised here in bc canada,
based on the replies, over both sites we came up that this was not possible based on road, traffic, our own driving habbits etc CAN you confirm that you ARE getting 1000 km per tank on regular gas

I believe i may have the exact same car. Bought mine this past friday. Put 30 bucks in it and got some really good use out of that money. I believe i got somewhere between 550 and 650 miles, which converts to 1000km. I'm' in Texas. Love my car so far!

Why would anything corrode??

You don't need to use super unleaded. I'm on a trip from Oracle, Az. to Maryland and getting 39.8 mpg and giggling all the way at about 80mph.

Here's an updated pic of my car. I've since installed the anti-corrosion module, tinted the windows (illegal all around 20%), oem wind deflectors (bought and installed at dealership) and bought a set of new rims and tires (kuhmos). More mods next year.
