    - the car was purchased new from a mazda dealer in may 2017 - the driver side cushion heater failed in march 2020. - the passenger side cushion heater failed in november 2020 - both sides exhibited the same problem despite the fact that the usage of the passenger side was about 25% of the driver - from the time the cushion heaters failed, we observed random overheating of the back heaters and recorded "hot spots" of up to 149 deg f (picture attached) - while the cushion heaters don't operate, the backs get too hot for occupants (attached picture of skin reaction) and at one point the passenger side partially melted a plastic shopping bag - mazda responded to the complaint that the car was outside of the 3-year warranty (expired in may 2020) and there were no related recalls so the company was not interested in any testing or investigation of the problem attached: - picture #1: temperature ir readings - picture #2: effect of the overheating on one of the occupants

    My 2015 mazda5 was involved in a single vehicle high speed rollover crash with 4 kids in it. They were on a dead end road that ran parallel to a divided highway. Upon the initial impact the front airbags deployed. The vehicle then rolled several times, landing drivers side down 150-200 feet from the initial impact. Neither side airbags deployed. The front passenger seat was visibly twisted. Also my sons seatbelt came undone on impact, resulting in several critical injuries that required him to be airlifted to a children? S trauma center. The vehicle was totaled. The weather was clear, roads dry and it was daylight, a little after 5pm. *dt *tr

    When the upper portion of the driver's seat is left alone overnight, it switches positions by the next morning (ie the upper seat is always back further than where it was left the prior evening - so it happens overnight). This seat is electric, not manual. When this occurs, the vehicle is sitting and not running. This has happened multiple times (over 20 times).

    The power seat lift and lower mechanics have failed so that the seat no longer raises or lowers to its original extent. This prevents the driver of the vehicle from adjusting the seat properly for safe driving. The actuator, fuses, and wiring are all functional and the mechanical components simply no longer allow full range of motion regarding seat height even with manual adjustment. I believe the mechanical components simply failed and am not aware of any specific cause. I am 6'3'' and my wife is 5'4'' and seat height adjustment is critical to safe driving.
