Turning to park her vehicle, in a parking lot, the vehicle suddenly accelerated and hit two parked cars in front.

problem #3

The day was hot and I was in stop and go traffic with the ac set to 72 degrees in my 2015 Mazda 3 with just 21K miles on it. My car unexpectedly stalled and the check engine and charging system/battery lights came on briefly in the dash. I had to shift into park and push the button to restart my vehicle. The car's ECU/PCM did not set any codes and the problem has not occurred again since that hot day. This is a danger because the sudden loss of power could result in a rear end collision luckily I was in stop and go traffic. Dealer and Mazda have been slow to investigate this thoroughly. Feels like they just want to send me on my way without doing a thorough investigation of this issue.

Vehicle navigation display has multiple times while driving, unexpectedly restarted. Once was listening to radio, radio did not stop but system restarted. Other time, was on call, and system restarted but call did not disconnect, user on other end could not hear me and I could not hear them. When system restarted, call continued. Called dealer and was informed that there may be a system firmware update needed. Brought vehicle in, was told that no firmware update was available, and that they could not reproduce issue.
