Having problems with your 2007 Mazda 3 ?
My 2007 Mazda3 is the worst car I have ever driven on snow and ice? Is this a common problem and can anything be done about it?
First,any car that has low ground clearance can be a problem in deep snow. But the problem you are facing is probably related to the contact patch of the tires. If you have wide, flat tread, go-cart/race track style tires you will have problems in rain, on ice , and on snow. I am guessing you have too much tread on the ground for the weight of the car. You can try adding weight to the car ( sand bags in the trunk , it works for pick ups). I live in Minnesota. For one car I had to get narrower tires and rims ( about 2" to 3" narrower) for winter driving. It made all the difference in the world. If there is a different tire offered for your model that is narrower( off of the less sporty version) , you may want to buy a second set of wheels at the salvage yard for winter driving. This should take care of the problem.
