Trey5660 Junk. July 31, 2019
Overall Score
I bought this car with 260,000 km as a replacement for my Mazda6 that got dive-bombed by a deer. I can honestly say the Mazda was five times the car that this one is, save for power (tourquey 3.8L V6). However even power seems to escape this car as now my Catalytic converter is plugged causing the car to hesitate miserably. Overall , the interior and exterior design feels overly cheap, locks malfunctioning, driver side door occasionally will not open from the inside, forcing me to exit out my window or passenger door. ( I read this is a problem with the door actuator going bad..... something that honestly just shouldn't happen) Fuel economy is terrible (although fixing the exhaust may improve that). Oil dipstick stopper broken twice, no explanation as to how, ABS and traction control lights on, may or may not work, airbag randomly shuts off (hopefully just the sensor), had a doorhandle replacement before I bought it, but for a car that's only 11 years old (at the time of purchase) this is ridiculous. Cheap, shoddy piece of abysmal junk that I regret buying. I want my Mazda back.

Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, the headlamp driver module (HDM) may not operate properly in high underhood temperatures. If the HDM is not operating correctly, the low-beam headlamps and daytime running lamps could fail to illuminate. Loss of daytime running lamps and low-beam headlamps could result in decreased driver's vision, as well as rendering the vehicle less visible to other motorists, which could result in a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the headlamp relay (HDM) located in the underhood bussed electrical centre (UBEC). Note: this condition does not affect the high-beam headlamps, marker lamps, turn signals, or fog lamps. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2014-535.

Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
On certain vehicles, a defect in the ignition switch could allow the switch to move out of the "run" position if the key ring is carrying added weight or the vehicle goes off-road or is subjected to some other jarring event. If this were to occur, engine power, power steering and power braking would be affected, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. The timing of the key movement out of the “run” position, relative to the activation of the sensing algorithm of the crash event, may also result in the airbags not deploying in a subsequent collision, increasing the risk of injury. Correction: For each key, dealers will install two key rings and modify the key ring opening shape. Note: Until the correction is performed, all items should be removed from the key ring.

Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Compliance Mfr
Certain vehicles equipped with remote start capability fail to comply with the requirements of CMVSS 208 - Occupant Restraint Systems. The safety belt reminder light for the driver's seating position does not illuminate after the ignition key is inserted and turned to the 'run' position following a remote start. As well, the audible chime for the driver's seating position will not sound if the driver and a front seat passenger enter the vehicle following a remote start, the passenger buckles his/her seatbelt within 25 to 33 seconds after the remote start, and the ignition key is then turned to the 'run' position. Note: This non-compliance condition has no affect on vehicle safety. Correction: Dealers will recalibrate the Sensing Diagnostic Module (SDM) to activate an enhanced seatbelt reminder feature, which repeats the chime and telltale cycles up to two times if the seatbelt is not buckled and if the vehicles speed is over 8 km/h. This enhanced feature is already activated on 2007 vehicles.

In order to meet government NCAP crash testing standards, changes to the side impact protection system were recently introduced into production. These changes could cause the wiring harness that sends the signal to inflate the side impact airbag to become damaged. Under certain crash conditions, the side impact airbag may not deploy. Correction: Dealers will install a revised wiring harness that provides a more protected path for the wires.

On certain vehicles, the fuel tank is missing an adhesive layer that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell of the tank. With this condition, fuel and/or fuel vapours could seep out between the layers. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace the fuel tank.

On certain vehicles, the clip that secures the brake pushrod to the brake pedal arm pin could have been bent during assembly. A bent clip may come off, allowing the brake booster pushrod to separate from the brake pedal. If this happens, pushing on the pedal will not apply the brakes and a vehicle crash could occur without prior warning. Correction: Dealers will install a new brake pedal pushrod bushing and retaining clip and, if the clip was missing, a new brake pedal arm assembly.
