Cracked windshield, like many others. The glass is very thin, as intended, to keep the weight down, as per SkyActiv agenda. It gets cracked around the same area for most of the owners, sensor cluster on the top passenger side. Mazda Canada has denied the fact that this is stress crack, but that's the fact nevertheless, as it appeared while the car was standing still parked, and we were sitting on the park bench across. Right before our eyes. We have our insurance company's authorization to replace it, but will be waiting until it splits, or the fall, due to our deductible.
