2010 Mazda MAZDA3 Visibility Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID911027
 Internal NHTSA #10452015
 Model Year2010
 File date12/01/12
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI am the original owner of this vehicle, purchased brand new. In january 2010. The heater when turning on, made a loud clicking sound for approx. 20- 30 seconds, each time. Upon research on the internet, local mechanics, i found out the heater blend door actuator is the problem. I was going to replace it, but upon further investigation i found that this heater assembly is not only used by mazda, nissan, toyota, chevy, ford, and lexus. This is heater is known to have this design error. Also the dealer had unplugged the heater blend door actuator because this unit is known to start a fire in the vehicle. This made me extremely nervous. I consider this to be an unsafe vehicle.
