2012 Mazda MAZDA3 Vehicle Speed Control Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1001737
 Internal NHTSA #10534399
 Model Year2012

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemAfter taking a left hand turn onto a local road,i noticed that my car was decelerating despite the fact i was pressing on the gas. The traction control light on the dash came on and the car appeared to be stuck in 1st or 2nd gear; i could not go faster than 40 mph without the rpms going too high. This car has automatic transmission. I tried turning off the traction control by pressing its button, but this did not work. I also tried switching to manual mode but couldn't get the car to shift or the traction control light to shutoff. I finally had to pull over and restart the car to get the light to turn off and the transmission to act normally. I have seen others post a similar problem, though they were in much more serious environments - on the highway going 70 and all of a sudden having to pull across traffic and restart the car because of this weird transmission-traction control issue. This creates for an incredibly dangerous situation and i am petrified of this happening again in a similar scenario. This is something mazda needs to address immediately.
