1). THREE RECALLS ON MY VEHICLE: 1ST - POWER TRAIN CONTROL MODULE RE-CALIBRATION RECALL 1904D. 2ND - B4000 DPFE SENSOR WARRANTY EXTENSION PROGRAM SPECIAL SERVICE PROGRAM (SSP) 59. 3RD - ACCELERATOR CABLE RECALL 2704L. COMPLETED ALL RECALLS; LAST ON 3/2/05. 2). 2/2005 I STARTED EXPERIENCING INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS WITH MY VEHICLE: - THE CAR STOPS RUNNING USUALLY WHEN SLOWING DOWN FOR A STOP SIGN OR RED LIGHT. THE CAR HAS STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC, IN THE HEIGHT OF RUSH HOUR. THE CAR STOPPED EXITING A POST OFFICE BACKING UP TRAFFIC CAUSING MOTORIST TO SEEK ANOTHER EXIT. HAVE HAD VARIOUS OTHER STOPS BUT HAVE BEEN LUCKY NOT TO CAUSE ANY ACCIDENTS. - THE CAR WILL NOT START; USUALLY UPON SHORT TRIPS. AFTER WAITING 3 - 5 MINUTES HAVE BEEN ABLE TO START THE VEHICLE. HAVE ENCOUNTERED THIS NUMEROUS TIMES. I LIMIT DRIVING AT NIGHT DUE TO THE UNPREDICTABILITY AND LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN MY VEHICLE. 3) I HAVE HAD MY CAR SERVICE AT OAKLAND MAZDA (510)893-7282 (3/2/05-RECALL, 4/9/05, 4/19/05, 5/11/05, & 6/20/05) AND HAVE DISCUSSED THE PROBLEM WITH THE SERV ADVISOR, KEN MILLER & SERVICE MANAGER. THE DEALERSHIP INFORMED ME THEY THOROUGHLY CHECKED-OUT MY CAR EACH TIME THEY SERVICED IT. THEY HAVE REPEATED THE RECALL WHICH MOSTLY DESCRIBES MY SYMPTOMS (RE-CALIBRATION RECALL 1904D) AT LEAST TWICE. THEY ALSO CONTACTED THE MAZDA HEADQUARTERS SERVICE CENTER FOR DOCUMENTATION ON HOW TO CHECK OUT MY VEHICLE. I ALSO CONTACTED THE MAZDA CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT (800)222-5500 IN MAY OF 2005, THEY TOLD ME THAT IF NECESSARY THEY COULD DISPATCH A SERVICE TECHNICIAN TO FLY IN AND REPAIR MY VEHICLE; THEY ALSO SENT A REPORT TO THE OAKLAND DISTRICT MGR. I CONTACTED THE MAZDA CUST ASSIST CENTER AGAIN ON 7/14/05 , THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HELP ME FURTHER WITH MY CAR PROBLEM. 7/15- I CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP IN FREMONT (WHERE I BOUGHT THE CAR) EXPLAINED MY PROBLEMS AND ASKED IF THEY WOULD CONSIDER TAKING A LOOK AT MY CAR BUT THE SERV MGR NEVER CALLED ME BACK.
