2004 Mazda3 S sedan (2.3L) just went over 18,500 miles
Since I had the shift shock problem fixed I have noticed a small improvement but still nothing to brag about. I have filled up 3 times since - one tank was 22 - the others were 21MPG. Normal has been around 19 MPH - most of my driving is city stop and go and because of the weak AC and warm climate I run the AC most of the time. So it looks like I have about 2 MPG improvement.
My MPG have ranged from a low of around 16 MPG - for several tanks after Mazda fixed my CEL problem - to a high of 29.+ on a pure highway trip.
I still get the "Post could not be completed due to login delay" every time I sign on - but at least I know its not just my PC - I had some kind of virus called NavExcel my software kept catching it - and removing it - but it would come back - one day I killed it at least 25 times.
I thought maybe this virus was causing my problems.

#2824 of 4993 My noisy babe Mazda3
Dec 20, 2005 (2:24 pm)
Just bought the car last weekend
Its pretty good so far..but it is definitely a noisy babe car..probably also because the road condition in San diego is not that great, but the road noise is realy really noticable .~ Ok, not really here to complain about this obvious fact to everyone..but curious to know if there is anything I can do to reduce that noise?

#2826 of 4993 Just released: Updated Brake Pads for the Mazda3
Dec 20, 2005 (7:26 pm)
Updated [rear] brake pads were recently introduced in Canada. These are not new pads to be confused with the recent TSB. These ones also reduce the amount of brake dust on the rears. Anyone have any experience with them? The dealer told me that they will wear out the rotors faster. Others say that's BS.
Speaking of brakes. Mine make a clicking or creaking noise when backing up, even after long driving. Anyone else experience this? The inept dealer cant find anything wrong. Mind you, all of the Mazda dealers service departments in my area are very tiny and it's difficult to hear unless they drive the car in and back up in a decent sized underground parking lot.

Did you get a 4- or 5-door? I've had my 5-door a few days and have noticed road noise to be a slight annoyance. But I just turn up the radio!
