Dumb things you've done to your 3

-I thought the car was off, so I recranked it . The car is too quiet sometimes.
-Stalled b/c I forgot I was in a manual transmission and just plain old forgot to hit the clutch when braking in gear.
-Taken it to a non-Mazda certified repair shop

Don't list anything that will void your warranty btw (never know who is watching)

I almost stalled a couple time when I first got the car because I had an auto before it and was just so used to not having to push the clutch in.

Ive stalled my car a couple of times in the last 6 months, its always been after a really long leg workout and I literally cant feel the pedals, so I would just start in first gear really fast with no throttle

I've done the crank-when-its-on-thing before. Scared the hell out of me too cuz I thought the battery was dead.

Haha. Damnit. I'm a fool.

Enjoy your spahgetti, you're very rude.

Dumb things you've done to your 3

I forgot my wipers were in the vertical position, and opened my hood, and caused a small stratch along the back edge of the hood This occurred about 3 weeks after I got the car

One time I was leaving work and cut a corner too close and slightly rode up one of the handicap access ramps on a curb, and scraped the bottom side of my right side skirt. At first I thought it was my rims, and luckily when I got home, it was "only" the underside of the skirt.

I also slightly scraped my right rear rims along a curb making a right turn out of my work parking lot - luckily it is only a 1/4" or so scrape, barely noticeable unless you are looking for it.
