The headrests jut forward at an extreme angle and causing chronic and acute neck, head and back pain. The design of these is a result compliance with the NHTSA's headrest standard. The NHTSA went too far and should reconsider the standard. It is causing misery for thousands or even millions of motorists. To alleviate the pain, I was forced to reverse the headrest...making it far unsafer in the event of an accident. There are thousands of posts about this online.

A few times when starting up the vehicle, the Mazda emblem pops up slowly, then fades away, and the lcd system screen will continue to be a blank, black screen with no response until I restart the car. About 7-10 times it has happened where I'm driving and all of a sudden the music will stop, then the lcd screen shows a Mazda emblem, and the system reboots itself. I'm taken notes and have tried to find commonalities when this happens, but have not yet. I've mentioned it each time I get a Mazda oil service, but the techs never find anything. I also have video recording of one of the instances where it lasted particularly long.
