You are in the Mazda3
What is this discussion about?

I asked Mazda the same question before I got my first 3. Reply:
The 6-disc CD changer that comes in the Mazda3 does not play MP3's. You would have to change it out with one that can be purchased as an accessory.
So, no, it won't. Also, I thought CD's with CD Text would work, but they don't seem to work on my 2007 either.
Really, no reason to worry about the text or the MPG readout when breaking your jawbone from grinning so hard after going around some sharp turns at 50 mph and WOT at 5,000 + rpm.
This is not a fuel miser, nor a top economy (mpg) car, but damn is it fun!
#9042 of 9328 MP3 capability in Mazda 3 GS sedan 2007

I was wondering if someone could clear up the fact of whether or not the cd player in the mazda 3 GS sedan 2007 (not with the 6 cd changer) is able to play mp3 cds? I tried playing one last night and it would only show track 1 and would count up and there would be no sound, I dont know if its because of how i burned the cd, or if the car's factory cd cant play it, but the manual says that the cdplayer can play mp3 files. Could someone clear this up for me?
ps. My first new car, and couldnt be happier with it!

I'm pretty sure that the only way to play mp3's is through the aux jack or by purchasing the special 6disk changer with mp3 capability (not the bose 6disk one though).

Yes. I have an '07 Mazda 3i Touring sedan with a single CD player and it will play mp3 CDs. My audio system has firmware version 1.09. Don't know if that makes any difference. The 3 manual has a full explanation of what CDs can be played in the unit. My guess is that the CDs you are trying to play were not burned in an acceptable format.

With the car off, turn the key to the ACC position, then hold the Audio Control Button and "1" button at the same time. Audio Version will be displayed.

can someone explain to me what's the deal with side airbags and side curtains in Mazda 3 (5-door)? It's listed as an option on masda web site, yet i can't build a vehicle with these options neither on mazda or edmunds website...

They come standard - that is why you can't add them (at least on the Touring and GT, can't remember on the sport).
#9049 of 9328 Prepaid Maintanence Plan

Mazda tried to renig on our plan today with the 1st radiator flush. After a heated discussion, they ate the cost but now we have to see the general manager about what they plan to do about this problem. Pretty pissed off at the dealership right now about how they're trying to weasel out of their commitment. Time will tell.
