2010 Mazda Mazda3 ProblemsRear Brakes Squeaking

A burr on the backing plate of the brake pad can prevent the pad from seating in the bracket properly causing the contact with the rotor. The backing plate and the pad support hardware can be deburred in the contact areas. Mazda has also released revised brake pads.
Damaged wiring to the seat belt pre-tensioner sensor may cause the Airbag Warning Light to illuminate.

2010 Mazda Mazda3 RecallsThe Engine May Stall and Not Restart
The engine wiring harness may be routed too close to the starter, resulting in damage to the harness caused by normal engine vibration. If the harness is damaged, engine control and/or transmission shift malfunctions may occur. In some cases, the main fuse could blow, causing the engine to stall and not restart, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair the harness. In addition, a protector clip will be installed to prevent future damage. This recall is expected to begin by May 6, 2009. The Mazda recall number is 5409D.
