I was driving down a street @ 40mph when the infotainment, speedometer, shut off and I could not accelerate. The stability control warning came on and stayed on. After a brief moment, the stability warning turned off, but the check engine light went on. The car drove normally for the rest of the day, but the very next day, at a stop light, the same thing occurred, but this time, I could not accelerate past 2000 rpms, nor reach 20 mph. I pulled over on the side, and turned off the car. Then turned it back on. It drove normally with the check engine light on the rest of the day, but this could be a very dangerous situation.

After driving my Lincoln mkz, where pressing the ignition stop button automatically puts the car in park, I drove my friend's 2014 Mazda6. I pressed the ignition stop button but exited the vehicle without putting it in park. I did not notice any warning that the car had been turned off and exited without being in park. The car, although stationary when we left it, ended up rolling into another car in the parking lot. My initial estimate is that the total damage will exceed $5,000 to both cars. If this car had had an ignition key, I would have been forced to put it in park as I removed the key. Please consider requiring a voice warning that car has been turned off and/or exited without being in park. I think our 2014 Lincoln mkz puts itself in park if you exit the vehicle.

The ipod connection seems to not have a memory nor was there an option or discussion about the ipod memory during my original inquiry of the vehicle. When plugging the ipod into the car the car's system spools for a long time (5 minutes, depending on the # of sounds you have) and begins with the first song on the device, rather than the last song or present song selected on the device. This has caused me not to use the usb ipod connection and use only the aux. This vehicle is equipped with a great bose sound system but you can't experience the quality due to using the aux vs the usb ipod device. Mazda just needs to update the firmware to allow memory and the usb should work without wasted time. This definitely takes away from the bose and Mazda experience.

The rear view camera, needed for adequate visibility when driving in reverse, does not function under the following circumstances: 1. quickly shifting into reverse after starting the car. In this situation, the top third of the rear view video is covered by a messages that says the car's fm radio is turned off. 2. receiving a text message. If a text message is received while driving in reverse, the entire rear view video is covered by a message that asks if the car should download the new message. 3. if there is a bluetooth gps device in the car. When the bluetooth device first connects and activates the car's audio/voice system, the rear view camera turns off and will not turn back on. The car's audio page is displayed instead of the camera video. Due to these apparent defects, the only way to safely drive the car in reverse is to turn off all bluetooth devices, then start the car, wait for the car's audio system to complete its start up, and only then shift into reverse to begin driving.
