Why NOT to EVER buy a Mazda.

My only reason to not buy a Mazda...they invalidated my warranty. Yup, I have no warranty on any of the outstanding issues with the car that they haven't fixed. I ranted on the Mazda forum so I just though I'd share.

Parts included...
rear brakes
headliner rattles (which they found!!! and attempted to fix.)
transmission
seat belt buckles
hatch interior plastic crap piece whatever it is
various rattles
doors
engine

Yea, sucks! Car will be gone soon, I'm hoping for less than 40 days.
Begin countdown! 38...

It seems when a dealer can't find anything if you complain to them enough times they stop doing anything to it alltogether and claim "phantom problems" that I get almost everyday I drive it.

Rear brakes burn profusely when it's driven, like on any day that's not 50degrees or below they smell like they're on fire. They've also smoked on me before.
If the headliner right next to your ear and the gauge cluster ratteld you'd want that fixed right?
Buckles could be a safety issue, the rear ones sound like there are plastic pieces that broke off and rattle aorund inside them.
The plastic piece is the entire interior piece of the hatch, something broke loose in there a few weeks ago now and it's incredibly loud and just rattles around in there.
I do want to get out of it but this is actual shit they won't ackgnowledge.

I had an '06 RX-8 Shinka prior to getting the Taco and loved it. I would have kept it if I didn't need more room. Sounds like you have yourself a true problem car. I agree with steviestyles...see if you can go to another dealer

It's sitting in the service lot at my third dealer. I have to travel my ass waaaaaay out to the boondocks to get into a different district so I can get a different district manager, my current district manager is the guy that f**ked me over.
