    Default 2013 6 Speed Manual Non Skyactiv?

    Hi All

    Looking at used cars I'm thinking of buying a Mazda 3.
    I found a 2013 that dealer has it listed as a 148 HP engine, but it's a 6 speed manual(I'm clueless about cars but I can count..at least until 6)
    It doesn't have "skyactiv" on the back as all other ones I've looked at do.

    But I am under the impression that the 148 HP manual should be a 5 speed, the 6 speed should be 155HP.
    I checked the VIN through car reports and it came up as GS-SKY

    Should I assume the dealer has just made an error, or am I completely missing something?

    And just remembering things I forgot to ask the dealer..
    ( almost completely irrelevant) do all the 2013 Mazda 3's have a USB port? (My last car was 2007) ? I completely forgot to check the car when I took it for a test drive, I know some have them but I'm not sure if ti was a standard feature or not.
    And do they all come with block heaters? I remember a Mazda telling me years ago that all mazdas in Ontario at least had block heaters, but I'm not sure if that is still a thing (if it ever was) .


    Thanks in advance for any information or direction you can provide!

    To start, welcome.

    A 2013 Mazda 3 with a 6-Speed manual is either a 2.0L Skyactiv, a 2.5L Non-Sky, or a 2.3L Turbo.
    If you checked the VIN with a reputable site and it shows that it is a Sky, I would probably trust that.
    We have run into ads on AutoTrader having the wrong information, and it seems common because AutoTrader auto populates their options through the VIN.

    I believe all the 2013 Mazda 3's came with a USB port in the centre console.
    And I am not sure I have ever personally seen a Mazda 3 with a block heater, so I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.
