Summary of Complaint

My 2015 mazda3 was in a collision on 09/08/2021 and my vehicle was totaled. None of my airbags deployed . Fortunately i only sustained neck and back injuries. I believe that i would have avoided these injuries if my airbags deployed properly. Has anyone else reported a problem with airbags on the 2015 mazda3? If there is a problem with the airbag then other owners need to be notified of this safety issue.

Summary of Complaint

MY CARS INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM, WHICH INCLUDES THE REARVIEW CAMERA, STARTED MALFUNCTIONING IN EARLY 2019. THE INFOTAINMENT SCREEN (FOR THE CLOCK, RADIO, GPS AND REARVIEW CAMERA) WAS IN A REBOOT LOOP (CONSTANTLY REBOOTING OVER AND OVER). WHEN THE CAR IS PUT IN REVERSE, THE REARVIEW CAMERA WORKS SPORADICALLY, INCLUDING SHUTTING OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF REVERSING THE CAR. I TOOK THE CARE TO THE ORIGINAL DEALER AND (PER THE SERVICE INVOICE ATTACHED), THEY DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS "CMU FAILURE" WHICH WOULD COST ME $1000 (ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS) TO FIX. I REFUSED, AS I DID NOT THINK IT WAS APPROPRIATE FOR THE CMU TO FAIL ROUGHLY FOUR (4) YEARS AFTER PURCHASE. I GOOGLED THE PROBLEM AND IT'S EVIDENT THAT MANY OTHER MAZDA OWNERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

GOOD AFTERNOON, MY CAR IS EXPERIENCING THE GHOSTING ISSUE WITH MY INFOTAINMENT SCREEN. THIS IS HAPPENING IN MANY MAZDA 3'S THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY AND IS A BIG SAFETY HAZARD AS IT IS DISTRACTING WHILE WE ARE DRIVING. CURRENTLY IT IS A WARRANTY ISSUE BUT THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL INSTEAD AND I SHOULDNT HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE THIS FIXED. MY REASONING FOR THIS IS WHEN I AM DRIVING THE SCREEN WILL GO CRAZY AND SELECT WHAT IT WANTS TO AND PLACE CALLS AND GO INTO A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT AREAS. THIS CAUSE ME AND OTHER DRIVERS TO TAKE OUR EYES OF THE ROAD AND ALSO OUR HANDS OFF THE STEERING WHEEL TO CANCEL CALLS OR TO EXIT WHERE THE SCREEN DECIDES TO GO.THIS IN TURN CAN CAUSE ACCIDENTS NOT ONLY FOR MYSELF BUT OTHERS ON THE ROAD AS WELL. THERE IS NO WAY TO DISABLE THE TOUCH FEATURE IN THE SETTINGS ITSELF SO I CANT DISABLE THIS FUNCTION IF I WANTED TO WITHOUT TAKEN APART THE DASH AND VOIDING MY WARRANTY. THIS HAPPENS WHEN STATIONARY, IN MOTION, IN THE CITY AND ON THE HIGHWAY. THIS ISSUE HAPPENS OFF AND ON THROUGH THE WEEK.

Summary of Complaint

THE POWER SEAT LIFT AND LOWER MECHANICS HAVE FAILED SO THAT THE SEAT NO LONGER RAISES OR LOWERS TO ITS ORIGINAL EXTENT. THIS PREVENTS THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE FROM ADJUSTING THE SEAT PROPERLY FOR SAFE DRIVING. THE ACTUATOR, FUSES, AND WIRING ARE ALL FUNCTIONAL AND THE MECHANICAL COMPONENTS SIMPLY NO LONGER ALLOW FULL RANGE OF MOTION REGARDING SEAT HEIGHT EVEN WITH MANUAL ADJUSTMENT. I BELIEVE THE MECHANICAL COMPONENTS SIMPLY FAILED AND AM NOT AWARE OF ANY SPECIFIC CAUSE. I AM 6'3'' AND MY WIFE IS 5'4'' AND SEAT HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL TO SAFE DRIVING.

Summary of Complaint

I STARTED NOTICING A SQUEAL FROM MY REAR BRAKES THAT WOULD OCCUR AT THE BEGINNING OF DRIVING (NOT WHILE BRAKING) THEN GO AWAY AFTER 1 OR 2 STOPS. ABOUT A WEEK AND A HALF LATER, THE DAY I USED MY HANDBRAKE TO PARK, AFTER MY 25 MINUTE COMMUTE HOME I NOTICED A HOT METAL SMELL. I PUT MY HAND UP TO MY DRIVER SIDE REAR WHEEL AND FELT INTENSE HEAT FROM THE BRAKES. SAW THE ROTORS WERE DUG IN. I BOUGHT REAR BRAKES AND ROTORS AND CHANGED THEM OUT MYSELF. THE PARKING BRAKE ACTUATOR SHAFT WAS STUCK, BINDING THE BRAKES ON BOTH REAR CALIPERS. THE METAL AROUND THE BOOT OF BOTH SHAFTS ON THE CALIPER LOOK WET. THE PISTON OF THE CALIPER WAS EASILY ROTATED BACK IN AFTER UNBINDING THE PARKING BRAKE ACTUATOR SHAFT. PARKING BRAKE NOW IS UNHOOKED DUE TO IT BEING UNSAFE. THIS HAPPENED ON BOTH PARKING BRAKE ACTUATOR SHAFTS ON THE REAR CALIPERS AFTER ONLY 24,900 MILES.

THE INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM HAS A GHOST FEATURE: IT STARTS TO DIAL NUMBERS AUTOMATICALLY, CHANGE STATIONS WITHOUT ANY USER INPUT AND MANY OTHER DISRUPTIONS AS IF THERE IS A CLOUD MONKEY INSTALLED IN THE SYSTEM. ISSUE EXISTS AFTER RESETTING THE SYSTEM. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN OFF THE SYSTEM AND I AM JUST DRIVING AROUND WITH THE SYSTEM BEEPING ALL THE WAY. IT IS EXTREMELY DISTRACTING AND IS AFFECTING THE DRIVING. MAZDA DEALER CHARGED $150 TO SAY THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE AND ONLY WAY TO RESOLVE IS TO REPLACE IT WITH ANOTHER INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM: COST $1500. I REACHED OUT TO MAZDA USING THEIR OWNER'S PORTAL AND GOT NO RESPONSE. ITS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME SOMEONE GETS INTO AN ACCIDENT DUE TO THIS HIDDEN FEATURE OF MAZDA.

THE INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS WHILE THE CAR IS BEING OPERATED, CREATING A SERIOUS DISTRACTION FOR THE DRIVER. FOR EXAMPLE, THE SYSTEM CAN BE TUNED TO THE RADIO AND THEN IT WILL RANDOMLY SWITCH TO THE PHONE FUNCTION AND DIAL A NUMBER AGAIN AT RANDOM FROM MY CONTACTS LIST.TRYING TO DISENGAGE THE CALL DOESN'T WORK AS IT KEEPS DIALING OR WILL REDIAL. THIS HAPPENS REPEATEDLY. IT WILL ALSO AT TIMES CHOOSE A RADIO STATION WHICH IS NOT THE ONE THAT HAS BEEN SELECTED. WHILE THESE MAY SOUND MINOR THEY CREATE A HAZARD BECAUSE THE DRIVER IS NOT ABLE TO CONTROL THE COMMUNICATIONS FEATURES WHEN THEY TAKE ON A LIFE OF THEIR OWN.

THIS IS APPARENTLY A KNOWN ISSUE TO MAZDA BUT THEY REFUSE TO FIX IT. ALL THEY WILL OFFER IS SWAPPING IT FOR ANOTHER INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM THAT WILL EVENTUALLY DO THE SAME THING AGAIN AT THE CUSTOMERS EXPENSE. THIS TAKES PLACE WHILE THE CAR IS TRAVELING AT 5MPH OR LESS SO IT MOST FREQUENTLY HAPPENS WHEN I AM SLOWING TO TAKE TURNS OR TRAVELING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND WHILE AT A STOP AT RANDOM TIMES. I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE SYSTEM ONCE IT STARTS GLITCHING AND MAKING CALLS AND CHANGING SETTINGS OR DIALING NUMBERS, I CANT HANG UP IM FORCED TO DISCONNECT THE BLUETOOTH FROM THE PHONE BUT THAT ONLY PREVENTS IT FROM MAKING CALLS IT STILL CONTINUES TO GO TO THE SETTING AT PRESS RANDOM BUTTONS
