2006 Mazda Mazda5 RecallsSliding Door Latch May Freeze
The sliding door latch mechanisms may experience water intrusion, allowing the latch mechanism to freeze in cold weather.

Since the door may open unexpectedly while driving, an unbelted occupant could be ejected from the vehicle. Dealers will replace the sliding door latches to correct this concern. The Mazda recall number is 4306K.
