The door did not latch completely when I closed it after getting in the car. I opened the door back up and realized that all three screws that hold the latch in had fallen out. I inspected the passenger side as well and 1 was gone. Updated 04/18/13 I went further and checked all of the screws in the car and realized that all of the screws were easy to remove. There was no adhesive on the screws to prevent them from backing out. Fortunately, I discovered the door didn't latch in my garage and not while I was going down the road!

I have a 2009 Mazda 6 S touring with 18000 miles on it and the three screws that hold the drivers door latch assembly on came loose and fell out. These screws should of been locked tightened in place and it seems that all the latch screws on the car were not secured not to work loose....updated 04/18/13
