We have owned our Mazda 6 since 2003. This year there is substantial rust in both rear fenders. Researching this it appears to be a common problem, such a problem that it was a recall in england. We contacted Mazda to see if a recall was available to America, but one was not. Mazda is aware of the problem as they modified their design to change the rear fender on future models. We fear that the structure has degraded greatly that a side impact would result in serious injury to rear passengers.
