We have replaced passenger side low beam and driver side lowbeam lights since March 2015. After reading countless reviews over last couple of months, many many people have replaced more often than this. There is an obvious design flaw because a slight rap on affected headlight will make it temporarily work. There should be a recall by Mazda to fix this issue very soon..

The bulbs on my vehicle seem to blow out within a month or 2. we tried different bulbs and it still happens. We are spending tons of money replacing headlights and the car is only driven a couple miles a day.

The passenger headlight will go out on my 2011 Mazda 6 even though the bulb and fuses are still intact and working properly. It worked when I parked my car and turned them off manually and then did not come back on the next time I started my car and turned the lights on. It is definitely a flaw from Mazda as numerous people have had this same problem. It is not only the 2011 models, search for "Mazda headlight issue" and a variety of the Mazda 6's are having this same issue.

I was pulled over my local police for no head lamp. They let me off with a warning. I searched the internet the next day and found that this problem is a known defect by Mazda and they are doing nothing about it. I found over 4 dozen testimonials from car owners describing the exact same problem on the exact same model. They were told by Mazda North America to "rap on the plastic headlamp cover" and that would turn on the lamp....which it does. In my opinion, Mazda is negligent in correcting a known defect.
