    Question 2006 Mazda 3i ?? US car? Help!

    Hey first post and I did search but couldn't see what I need.

    Bought my first Mazda yesterday (cheers) and on the UVIP and ownership the model is M3I

    Is this a Mazda 3i?

    And doesn't that mean this is a US car?

    I tried to find info for Canadian models and all there is is GX GS GT, etc...wiki clearly shows the I as the base US model.

    Everything on all the UVIP paperwork back to the first registration shows Ontario. Im confused.

    Is this just a GX? Need to know for parts ordering!!

    It's fairly easy to identify the model. If the speedo is miles, it's most probably a US car.

    If it's Canadian, looks for the rims, auto headlights/wipers, tail lights, etc. Or just post a few pics, we can help out!

    So got in touch with a dealership and, using the VIN number, have confirmed that it is indeed a Canadian car.

    It shows up in the Parts counter computer as a "GS" 2.0l

    Had figured the I, being the base model, would be equivalent to the GX. Not even sure of the difference btwn GX and GS, but for most parts apparently (ie, rotors) the parts are interchangeable.

    Thanks for the notes above as well!
