TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2016 Mazda CX-5. THE CONTACT STATED WHILE DRIVING AT VARIOUS SPEEDS, THE SEAT BELT WARNING LIGHT ILLUMINATED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC WHERE THE CONTACT WAS INFORMED THAT THERE WAS SHORT IN THE WIRING HARNESS AND THE MODULE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. ADDITIONALLY, WHILE THE MECHANIC WAS WORKING ON VEHICLE, THE SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAGS INADVERTENTLY DEPLOYED. THE LOCAL DEALER WAS NOT CONTACTED. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT DIAGNOSED NOR REPAIRED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 50,000. INVALID VIN.
Vehicle was on a city street traveling at 35-40 mph when the front left wheel (yokohama geolandar g91) spontaneously blew out despite not colliding with any objects or road hazards. As a result, driver side curtain and seat airbags erroneously deployed and the vehicle immediately shutoff, causing disorientation and temporary loss of hearing in one ear.
I believe i still have a takata air bag installed in my car. When there was an original question, mazda only inspected the airbag. Is it ok and safe for me to continue to have the takata air bag or should it be replaced?
I purchased this vin less than 24 hours ago, i was told it was certified by the dealership. In looking up the vin on www. Nhtsa. Gov this am, it says the recall #3719f was not fixed; the dealership just sent me a screen shot from mazda north america operations warranty vehicle inquiry report, and it shows the repair done. Who do i believe? The vehicle is at my home on the drive way, stationary. I'm asking the dealership to pick the car up, and refund my $100 dollars. They want $400. 00 more when i get paid 2/25.
I was driving on the highway and it was raining. I lost control of the vehicle, the steering wheel was spinning uncontrollably. I was advised i most likely hydroplaned. The vehicle finally slowed down and backed into a guardrail. Only the rim of the driver side back tire was damaged. The impact felt like the impact felt when hitting a curb too hard. This did not happen on the side of the road with a shoulder, so after the tire hit the guardrail, i moved to the car to the other side of the road to be on the shoulder. Once i arrived at the other side of the road, the airbags deployed and the brake assist light came on and the police were automatically called. The car was towed and the collision shop cannot explain why the airbags deployed. I'm terrified that the airbags can deploy at any time for any reason. I am also terrified that they will not deploy when they are supposed to since they deployed at least 10-15 seconds after the impact with the guardrail occurred.
