Summary of Complaint

I RECENTLY REPLACED MY FRONT BRAKES DUE TO NORMAL WEAR. I TOOK MY CAR TO A LOCAL MADZA DEALERSHIP, AND WHEN THE JOB WAS COMPLETED, MY BRAKES BEGAN TO MAKE ODD NOISES ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. I TOOK THE CAR BACK, AND THEY TOLD ME THAT BRAKES MAKE NOISES. I TOLD THEM, THAT WASN'T TRUE. PRIOR TO THE NEW BRAKE JOB, MY ORIGINAL BRAKES DIDN'T MAKE ODD NOISES. I THEN TOOK THE VEHICLE TO ANOTHER MADZA DEALERSHIP. AGAIN, I WAS TOLD NOTHING WAS WRONG. MEANWHILE, WHEN O ENGAGE THE BRAKES, THERE'S A STRANGE NOISE THAT CONTINUES ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. I'VE READ CAR FORUMS ONLINE, AND IT SAID THE BRAKES ARE THE WRONG SIZE FOR THESE MODEL VEHICLES. MADZA NEEDS TO FIX THE PROBLEM BEFORE SOMEONE GETS INJURED. THIS HAPPENS WHILE USING THE BRAKING SYSTEM.

Summary of Complaint

I think it is unfair that a manufacturing problem has been unnoticed and left to people to pay for. I am already paying enough for this car to also have to worry about a manufacturing problem that has been left unattended by the company. This certainly is very dangerous as I might have the cars battery die and have no way of getting immediate help and right now it's just the car not acknowledging the parking mode but what if one day the car starts using the wrong shift unknowingly to me and I end up in a car accident because of this? I wont be able to do anything as this has been left unnoticed and no recall has been made even with the dangers it presents to the driver and the car itself.

AS MANY OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED, I ALSO HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE ACCESSORY MODE STAYING ON AFTER TURNING THE CAR OFF. BASED ON MY RESEARCH, IT APPEARS TO BE THE PARKING SWITCH INSIDE THE SHIFTER WEARS OFF AND THE CAR DOESN?T REGISTER THE CAR IS IN PARK. MAZDA SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL ON THIS, AS I HAVE EXPERIENCED BATTERY DRAINAGE AND IT SEEMS TO BE GETTING WORSE WITH TIME. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN RIGHT AROUND THE 50-75K MILEAGE, JUST OUTSIDE THE WARRANTY PERIOD. IT JUST SEEMS TOO PREMATURE AND NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS AFTER 100K MILES. IT HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR IS STATIONARY. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2014 MAZDA 6 GRAND TOURING. THE CAR HAS ABOUT 72K MILES ON IT. I BOUGHT THE CAR A YEAR AGO AND STARTING A FEW MONTHS AGO THE CAR WOULD NOT TURN OFF IMMEDIATELY AFTER HITTING THE IGNITION BUTTON. THE CAR PANEL WOULD SAY THAT I HAD TO PUT THE CAR IN PARKING EVEN THOUGH THE CAR WAS ALREADY IN PARKING MODE. USUALLY I WAS ABLE TO SIMPLY MOVE THE SHIFT STICK A BIT AND IT WOULD ALLOW ME TO TURN THE CAR OFF COMPLETELY. BUT IT HAS GOTTEN WORST OVER TIME AND IT'S BEGINNING TO AFFECT MY BATTERY LIFE. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT MY CAR IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM. BASED ON THE INFORMATION I FOUND MANE OF THE 2014 MAZDA 6 MODELS (SPECIFICALLY THOSE MANUFACTURED LATE 2013 AND EARLY 2014) HAVE BEEN SHOWING THIS SAME PROBLEM WITH THE IGNITION SWITCH UNIT. MAZDA FOUND THE PROBLEM AND FIXED IT IN THE NEWER CARS BUT A RECALL WAS NEVER MADE FOR THOSE CARS WITH THE BAD SWITCH UNIT. I TRIED CONTACTING THEIR SUPPORT SYSTEM TODAY AND THEIR ANSWER WAS THAT BECAUSE A RECALL HADN'T BEEN DONE THEY WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I THINK IT IS UNFAIR THAT A MANUFACTURING PROBLEM HAS BEEN UNNOTICED AND LEFT TO PEOPLE TO PAY FOR. I AM ALREADY PAYING ENOUGH FOR THIS CAR TO ALSO HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A MANUFACTURING PROBLEM THAT HAS BEEN LEFT UNATTENDED BY THE COMPANY. THIS CERTAINLY IS VERY DANGEROUS AS I MIGHT HAVE THE CARS BATTERY DIE AND HAVE NO WAY OF GETTING IMMEDIATE HELP AND RIGHT NOW IT'S JUST THE CAR NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THE PARKING MODE BUT WHAT IF ONE DAY THE CAR STARTS USING THE WRONG SHIFT UNKNOWINGLY TO ME AND I END UP IN A CAR ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF THIS? I WON'T BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING AS THIS HAS BEEN LEFT UNNOTICED AND NO RECALL HAS BEEN MADE EVEN WITH THE DANGERS IT PRESENTS TO THE DRIVER AND THE CAR ITSELF.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS AT WALMART ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AND WHEN I FINISHED SHOPPING I CAME OUT TO MY VEHICLE IN AN ALMOST EMPTY PARKING LOT AND MY CAR WOULD NOT START. WITH PEOPLE ALREADY SCARED ABOUT THE CORONA VIRUS NO ONE WAS WILLING TO HELP. SINCE THIS IS OUR ONLY VEHICLE I ENDED UP HAVING TO CALL A RELATIVE FROM TO COME AND HELP ME HE TOLD ME THAT MY BATTERY HAD DIED, I TOLD HIM THAT THAT COULDN'T BE THE PROBLEM WHEN I GOT HOME I LOOKED ON THE INTERNET AND I SAW WHERE THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF MAZDA CAR OWNERS WHO WERE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM, CAR WILL NOT SHUT OFF WHEN IN PARK DRAINING BATTERY. I JOINED THE LONG LIST OF MAZDA OWNERS BY CALLING MAZDA COMPLAINING ABOUT THE APPARENT MANUFACTURER'S DEFECT AND WAS MET WITH THE SAME SCRIPTED SCRIP. "SORRY BUT THEY HAVE NOT RECEIVED ENOUGH COMPLAINTS FOR A RECALL AND THEY FELT THAT THIS WAS REALLY NOT A "SAFETY" ISSUE, REALLY? A WOMAN BEING STRANDED IN AND EMPTY PARKING LOT AT NIGHT WITH NO SECURITY IS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, I DON'T SEE WHAT IS. MAZDA KNOW AND HAS KNOWN FOR YEARS ABOUT THE GEAR SHIFT BEING DEFECTED BUT HAS IGNORED THE HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN CALLED IN BECAUSE WHEN WE CALL IN TO CS THEY DON'T RECORD COMPLAINT SO THEREFORE NEVER ENOUGH REGISTERED COMPLAINTS

Summary of Complaint

2-3 MONTHS AGO I NOTICED THAT EMERGENCY HAND BRAKE WAS NOT HOLDING THE CAR AGAIN AFTER RECALL HAS BEEN COMPLETED BACK IN SEP 2017. NOW I ALWAYS LEAVE MY CAR PARKED ON THE 1ST GEAR (MANUAL TRANSMISSION). MY MECHANIC SAID THAT CALIPERS HAVE NEVER BEEN REPLACED AND THEY LOOK ORIGINAL ALSO HE SHOWED ME THAT BRAKE PADS ARE NOT BEING RELEASED AND GET STUCK REALLY HARD ON THE REAR AXIS. I FOUND THE INVOICE AND EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN REPLACED IS "PARKING BRAKE LEVER PER RECALL ORDER". ALSO MAZDA DECLINED FIXING/REPLACING BRAKE PADS THAT HAVE BEEN WORN OUT WITHING 1 YEAR AFTER I REPLACED THEM. THEY SAID THAT THIS CAN'T BE COVERED SINCE THE JOB HAS NOT BEEN DONE BY MAZDA SERVICE AND THE PARTS WERE AFTERMARKET. I HAD TO CHANGE PADS ON THE READ AXIS 2 TIMES IN ALMOST 1 YEAR AND NOW I HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN. ALSO I HEAR SQUEAKING NOISE WHEN I'M DRIVING. I CAN HEAR THAT THE PADS ARE NOT COMPLETELY RELEASED AND TOUCHING BRAKE DISKS. ALMOST A YEAR BEFORE THE RECALL MY CAR ROLLED DOWN THE SLOPE AND BLOCKED FAIRLY BUSY ROAD IN WASHINGTON DC. LUCKILY IT DIDN'T HIT ANY CAR OR PERSON.

Summary of Complaint

FOR SEEMINGLY NO REASON, THE VEHICLE WILL RESTART AND STALL WHILE DRIVING AND MULTIPLE WARNING LIGHTS WILL ILLUMINATE. THIS HAS HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING SLOW, FAST AND WHILE TURNING. WHEN THIS HAPPENS, I NEED TO IMMEDIATELY PULL OVER AND RESTART THE ENGINE. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TURNS ON AND INDICATES AN ABRUPT VOLTAGE CHANGE ISSUE, BUT SOON TURNS OFF AFTER A FEW POWER CYCLES. THIS STARTED TO HAPPEN MORE AND MORE OFTEN, AND MORE RECENTLY, I HAD THE CAR NOT ABLE TO START AS IF THE BATTERY DIED. ALL MY ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS, SUCH AS HEADLIGHTS AND HAZARD LIGHTS SHUT OFF AND AFTER ABOUT 10 SECONDS, THEY ALL TURNED BACK ON AND RUNNING NORMALLY. AT THIS POINT MY VEHICLE STARTED UP AGAIN JUST FINE. THIS HAS NEARLY CAUSED AN ACCIDENT A COUPLE TIMES AND NO MECHANIC HAS BEEN ABLE TO DIAGNOSE THE ISSUE YET. ALTHOUGH, THIS ISSUE SEEMS ALARMINGLY CLOSE TO A RECENT RECALL THAT WAS ANNOUNCED FOR 2018-2019 MAZDAS RELATING TO A SOFTWARE ISSUE THAT CAUSES UNEXPECTED ENGINE STALLING RELATING TO THE FUEL-SAVING CYLINDER DEACTIVATION TECHNOLOGY. UNFORTUNATELY, EVEN THOUGH MY VEHICLE CONTAINS THE SAME TECHNOLOGY, IT WASN'T INCLUDED ON THIS RECALL LIST.

AFTER A YEAR OR SO OF OWNING THE VEHICLE, THE MOISTURE AND FOG APPEARED IN THE INNER TAIL LIGHT HOUSING, PASSENGER SIDE. I HAVE REPORTED THE PROBLEM TO A MAZDA DEALERSHIP BUT THEY SAID IT IS NORMAL AND MAZDA WILL NOT REPLACE THE TAIL LIGHT HOUSING. EVENTUALLY, MORE AND MORE WATER STARTED TO ACCUMULATE INSIDE, WHERE AT POINTS THE HOUSING WOULD BE COMPLETELY FOGGY AND EXCESSIVE LIQUID WOULD BE VISIBLE IN THE CORNER OF THE HOUSING FROM FEW FEET OF DISTANCE. IT'S ONLY MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE WATER CAUSES ADDITIONAL ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS, NOT TO MENTION THE COMPLETE LOSS OF LIGHT VISIBILITY AND HOUSING TRANSPARENCY, TO ALL OTHER DRIVERS WHO ARE IN THE REAR. MAZDA NEEDS TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE INSTEAD OF SAYING IT IS NORMAL. MY CAR IS PARKED IN A GARAGE AND IT IS NOT EXPOSED TOO OUTSIDE WEATHER FACTORS AT ALL TIMES, DURING THE DAY. IT IS WELL PROTECTED. I HAVE REPORTED THE ISSUE TO MAZDA SEVERAL TIMES BUT WITH NO SUCCESS.

A YEAR AGO I TOOK MY CAR FOR A RECALL THAT HAD TO DO WITH THE HANDBRAKE SOMEHOW RUSTING OUT WHERE IT SITS IN THE REAR BRAKE CALIPERS. THEY INSPECTED THE CALIPERS AND TOLD ME THEY HAD TO ORDER PARTS. I NEVER RECEIVED A CALL. THE NEXT TIME I WENT BACK I ASKED ABOUT IT AND THEY SAID IT WAS FIX. AFTER THE VISIT THEY RECOMMENDED TO REPLACE THE REAR BRAKE CALIPERS. THE VEHICLE IS A MANUAL AND IS TO THE POINT WHERE THE HAND BRAKE DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. IT RUNS THE RISK OF ROLLING AWAY IF THE TRANSMISSION FAILS OR IT COMES OUT OF GEAR. IT IS CLEARLY STATED IN NHTSA #17V-393 AND I HAVE CALLED MAZDA CORPORATE WHO TOLD ME IT DOESN'T HAVE TO DO WITH THE CALIPERS ("YOUR MAZDA DEALER WILL CHECK THE PARKING BRAKE ACTUATOR SHAFTS INSIDE THE LEFT AND RIGHT REAR BRAKE CALIPERS."). MAZDA REFERENCE NUMBER [XXX]. ALSO BECAUSE OF THE RUST THE HANDBRAKE IS LOSE SO IF YOU USE CRUISE CONTROL THE HANDLE CAN ACCIDENTAL PULL UP ENOUGH TO IGNITE THE HANDBRAKE LIGHT AND MAKE THE CAR AUTOMATICALLY TURN OFF CRUISE CONTROL WHICH IS SURPRISING AND COULD CAUSE THE DRIVER TO CRASH.

INTERMITTENTLY, THE CRUISE CONTROL BUTTONS DO NOT PERFORM THEIR PROPER FUNCTION.

THIS BEHAVIOR IS AN ISSUE BECAUSE WITH THE CANCEL BUTTON ACTING AS THE MINUS BUTTON, THE CRUISE CONTROL WILL ACTIVATE WITH THE CANCEL BUTTON. IN ADDITION, HAVING THE MINUS BUTTON FUNCTION AS THE PLUS BUTTON COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT IF THE CAR BEHAVES IN THE OPPOSITE MANNER AS EXPECTED. THE ISSUE OCCURS INTERMITTENTLY WHILE DRIVING.

TO THE BEST OF MY UNDERSTAND A BEARNING OF THE WRONG DIAMETER WAS INSTALLED LEADING TO AN INITIAL SYMPTOM OF A HIGH PITCHED WHINE AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. MAZDA'S SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION, BUT IF IT'S OUT OF WARRANTY THIS COMES AT THE CUSTOMER'S OWN COST (~$5,000). THERE HAS BEEN A TSB ABOUT THIS FOR YEARS NOW #05-005-15-3027A. THE ISSUES ARE THAT THERE IS NO TELLING WHEN THE SYMPTOMS WILL OCCUR AND WHEN I ASKED MAZDA WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THE TRANSMISSION IF I WASN'T REPLACED, THEY DECLINED TO GIVE ME AN ANSWER. IT IS OF CONCERN TO THE SAFETY OF DRIVERS THAT MAZDA DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

WITH NO CONSISTANCEY, THE CAR WOULD LOOSE POWER. AT TIMES, I THOUGHT THE CAR WOULD LOOSE FULL POWER, IN THE MIDDLE OF MY COMMUTE, I WOULD BE FORCED TO PULL OVER AND SHUT THE CAR OFF. MOST TIMES, THE CAR WOULD RETURN TO NORMAL CONDITIONS. WHEN I BROUGHT IT IN FOR REPAIR, BYERS MAZDA OF COLUMBUS, TOLD ME IT NEEDED A TUNE-UP. ONCE AGAIN, THE CAR ALMOST STALLED OUT AND I MANAGED TO COAST INTO A PARKING SPACE. NOW THE SAME DEALERSHIP IS INFORMING ME FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT THE CAR HAS AN I-LOOP SYSTEM AND THE BATTERY THAT SHOULD HAVE LASTED FIVE YEARS, NOW LESS THAN THE 3 YEARS OLD, NEEDS TO BE REPLACED FOR OVER $500.00. I BOUGHT THIS CAR USED WITH AN EXTENDED WARRANTY AND ALTHOUGH IT WAS MY MISTAKE, THE DEALERSHIP NEVER DISCLOSED THE I-LOOP SYSTEM AND THE PROBLEMS THAT GO WITH IT. THIS I-LOOP BATTERY WILL APPARENTLY LAST 2-3 YEARS ONLY AND IS VERY EXPENSIVE. I GUESS IT IS LEGAL FOR DEALERSHIP SALES REPS TO MISREPRESENT THE CAR MAINTENANCE BECAUSE THEY SAY IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW WHAT I PURCHASED. I WILL NEVER BUY FROM BYERS AUTO FOR ANY MODEL CAR!

Components: SUSPENSION

VIN: JM1GJ1V62E1****

Summary of Complaint

THE FRONT SUSPENSION MAKES A CLUNKING NOISE OCCASIONALLY WHEN MOVING RIGHT AFTER STARTUP AND SOMETIMES AFTER STARTING FROM A STOP (USUALLY ONLY NEAR THE START OF A DRIVE). IT ALSO OCCASSIONALLY MAKES A CLUNKING NOISE WHEN HITTING A POTHOLE/SPEED BUMP. THIS SEEMS TO BE THE SAME THING AS RECORDED IN THE MAZDA SERVICE BULLETIN 02-010/16 AND SUGGEST POSSIBLY MAKING IT A RECALL INSTEAD OF A SERVICE BULLETIN.
