So far I've had a wiring harness failure for the rear licence plate lights, multiple harness failures for the airbag system, rear hatch door opening switch failure, offside rear door latch failure, both front door handles failed, part of the alarm replaced, driver seat come loose. Repairs to date around Ł2,000 although Mazda and the dealer have made good will payments that substantially reduced that.
