My temp guage suddenly flew up to the "H" and I was told I needed a new electrical cooling fan assembly which cost me $1,100 for the repair. Just wondering if this is a known problem and if so, was there a recall?

-the driver's permission pad started sticking. Now even after replacing the smart fob battery the red smart key light goes on & off intermittently and also the radio shuts down, all the dash lights go off. When they come back on all the warning lights stay on. The car runs & drives fine.

In the original post, you state: "Our technicians tell us the Mazda may provide assistance with the cost of this repair."

I contacted Mazda and 3 dealerships today. No was the answer all around.

The only help I got was from searching the web and calling dealerships so that I could get dealerships to match/beat each other's prices on parts and labor, drop the diagnostic fee. One service manager told me they have a "Demographic pricing" basis that jacks the part price up based on the zip code.

low beams repeatedly replaced. If you rap outer headlight lamp low beams comes on (seems to be a common problem). When restarting lights may not come on, but if your bang headlight lamp they come on again.

The alarms goes off by itself, sometime 4 and 5 times a day. Sometimes it will go off and then stop going off without me hitting the button.
