2013 Mazda CX-5 4dr SUV

155-horsepower 2.0L I4 6-speed manual FWD

Driver side mirror shakes above ~35 mph (rearview and passenger side mirror are solid). They inspected it and said there was no issue. It still shakes. Update: it stopped bothering me. Not sure if it went away or I just got used to it. 
3000 mi Rattle under the dashboard when riding over bumps. Left side of lower seat (where your butt is) was ripped upwards off the base. Lower seat trim cloth had to be replaced. 
4300 mi Seat cover replaced. 
7000 mi Rattle from dashboard, especially from the passenger side. 
16000 mi Symmetrical dents due to body fatigue on both sides by the hatch. Those are symmetric and look very similar on both sides. Left side dented more than right side. 
16500 mi Driver side seat cover ripped out again from left side. New one installed. This was 2nd repair for this same problem.
