The Mazda 3 is Mazda's high-performance, compact sedan. It comes in a four-door model and a five-door hatchback. Both models get over 20 miles per gallon of gas. Owners can perform much of the maintenance. To perform several of the self-maintenance operations, such as replacing the air filter or a light bulb, you first have to remove the vehicle's glove box. Removing the glove box may seem like a daunting task, but you can do it in just a few steps.
