Leaving home lights did not work reliably. Fixed by dashboard firmware update. Seat would not recline. Lubrication fixed it. Factory probably did not lubricate enough.

Navigation failed once and told me I did not have a license. Also USB did not work. System started working after that. Nevertheless took the car to the garage and they suspected it was a firmware issue so they updated the firmware. Problem has not returned since. It also seems that the car runs more quiet now. Weird that the dealer where I got the car did not update all firmware before I picked it up.

Oil change. No problem while motor was hot but when parked leaked. Took to another dealer and they said oil drain plug loose. It was tightened but leak continued. Contacted Mazda NA Service Rep because dealer said they'd have to charge to replace oil (car is still 1 year and 12K in warranty). The Mazda Rep contacted dealer and basically told them to fix the problem under warranty. Super nice and customer oriented at the National Level. Problem turned out to be a crimped oil drain washer (it has a lip on the inner ring which was crushed on one side). This allowed the oil to leak when engine was cold but as the motor heated up it expanded the crimp on the metal washer so it did not leak when hot. Very displeased with the 2 dealers on their response to me about the issue. One dealer in Alabama and one in Texas.

6MT Transmission broke again. This time it was the secondary shaft. Dealer has been great and Mazda has covered all but $300 of repair , but the car has been in the shop for three weeks and having a transmission literally break twice in less than 12 months is disappointing to say the least. It may be time to trade this in for a different brand. Recall for rear brakes. A seal leaked and caused corrosion inside the caliper which can result in brakes seizing. They had previously seized due to the defect. Replaced rear calipers.

No parts have been replaced yet but at 90k miles the automatic transmission has started slipping when it shifts from 3rd to 4th. Only does it on the first shift on a cold engine so I'm going to try and milk it for a while. Also when I changed the spark plugs, cylinder 1 had oil on the plug so a seal is failing in the head. The car is driven 80 miles on the interstate everyday so I did not expect any major problems for another couple years. Very disappointing. Now I see why people buy boring Camry's. This is my first Mazda. Changed spark plugs at 90k miles. I noticed that cylinder number 1 had oil on the threads and the tip of the spark plug which would indicate a seal failure in the engine.
