Notes: The MAZDA6 was redesigned for the 2009 model year. Like any first-year product, it has a few growing pains – most notably a shiny, melting dashboard that can blind the driver.

problem #3

Jul 122013


  • 50,000 miles


The rod to the door handle inside the front passenger door fell in due to the recall that happened back in December 2013. The recall only replaced screws on the part that was still in the door. It did not cover the part that fell in because the screws fell out that hold the piece in. The door will not open from the outside without the rod attached. This is due to the first recall. We had no idea the screws fell out until the door would not open from the outside and we examined it. It should of been part of the original recall. This could create a situation where if there is an accident or issue and the passenger is not aware of what is going no one from the outside would be able to open the door to get them help or get them out. This should be a new recall. This should of been covered in the original recall and paid for by Mazda to fix.

When I tried to get into my car the door got stuck and only open about 2 inches. When I finally opened it and got in the car the door would not close. When I checked it I realized that all 3 screws were missing and the door latch had shifted.
