    Default another new member

    Hello everyone,

    Been on mazda3revolution for several years now. A member there suggested I come visit here so why not. I have a 2015 Mazda 3 GS hatch, 2.0L, manual transmission. Bought it new in 2015, it's been pretty well trouble free all this time. I plan to drive it into the ground firmly.

    Been repairing cars for about 15 years now and it has become a fun hobby for me. Have most tools in the garage. Only jobs I can't do are wheel balancing and alignment since the equipment is so expensive. I'd love to get a lift but I just don't have the room for that. Besides oil changes, I put some redline synthetic into the gearbox and cleaned out the intake valves with walnut blast. Had some issues with the rear brakes seizing a couple times but think I got that figured out now. The pad tab channels on the calipers are very tight and tend to build up corrosion. Cleaned it out with a bastard file and coat with grease. Seems to have done the trick.

    I live in peterborough so not really in Toronto but close.
