First of all I am happy that the car done it job in protecting my daughter during a crash with roll over of three times. The reason I'm here is to share my concern with the air bags not deploying during the crash. The crash was a very heavy impact on the passenger side of car and the driver side also had a big impact. No air bags deployed. I feel at least the side curtains would have. I have many pictures of the car and it done its job by protecting the driver compartment. I would really hope that there is nothing wrong with the air bags. On 5-16-15 I had a oil change at my local dealer and they repaired the recall for the driver air bag regulator. Could something set wrong to keep the air bags from deploying? my daughter really wants another Mazda since she walked away without any injuries but I'm scared the next Mazda air bags might not go off when she really needs them. Again I hope this is to help the next person daughter and they can be so lucky as I was to have my daughter.

Mazda6 purchased - current mileage 84808- discovered oil leak at engine rear main seal. Service mgr offered to correct problem. Oil leak not noticeable-oil dropping on under engine shield and coagulating. Low mileage might indicate problem existed at time of manufacture. If so, replacement of vehicle is proper action on part of manufacturer/seller. Oil changes have been done frequently and on time, however Mazda is refusing to help with cost due to warranty expiration and the fact the car did not have a oil change at the dealership every time. The Mazda warranty does not explain that the oil filter has to be Mazda brand it states that it should be Mazda compatible. Due to this inconsistency many Mazda's are having engine failure such as mine. My vehicle is still in my driveway, awaiting a new engine, that I cannot afford. Please help!! for everyone reading this that is looking to buy a Mazda don't!!! Mazda is a horrible car!

I was driving on the right lane (the slow lane) of the freeway, going around 60-65 mph. Around 4:45 P.M on a clear day, I noticed a white sedan next to me starting to change lanes into my lane. It did not see my car, because I had to veer slight right to avoid being hit by the car. My car did not handle the sudden move well and immediately started to swerve left and right uncontrollably for 1-2 seconds. I could not regain control of the car even though both my hands were on the steering wheel, trying to straighten the car. The car then lost complete control and swerved/spun all the way left (imagine making a complete left turn on the freeway), into the 3rd lane. It continued going in a counter-clockwise direction until a white van ran into my car in the middle of the freeway, stopping the car in a head-on collision. The air bags popped, smoke started coming from the car. I was amazingly unhurt for the most part. I took my hands of the steering wheel and managed to open the driver seat door to exit the vehicle. The final position of the car was facing exactly the opposite direction of traffic. Several firefighters/paramedics arrived and proceeded to clean up the debris scattered around the roads and pushed the car to the side of the freeway. The car insurance company hired forensic engineers to reconstruct the accident and inspect the car for damages. Unfortunately, there was nothing conclusive to report (although the front rotors were suspect).
