Melting Tail Lights - If you're out of warranty - You're Out of Luck
By gregsmazda6 on


2010 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


I bought a used 2010 Mazda 6 with about 44,000 miles on it. By about 48,000 miles, I noticed the tail light lenses were melting. It has stock bulbs. Dealership never saw this before (of course) but was willing to charge $350 for new tail lights. I tried going the route of "Tail Lights shouldn't melt in a year". I say they happen only after 3/36,000 warranties. Several iterations up the Mazda Corporate ladder - proved fruitless. Out-of-Warranty, Out-of-Luck. Only when I went to the NHTSA, I found (service bulletin) SB-10033969-2790), 2009/10 "Mazda 6 might experience heat deformation of the lens in warm climates" - Why isnt Mazda Selling - ARE MELTING TAIL LIGHTS ACCEPTABLE to CUSTOMERS???

Best Features

Heated Leather seats, Blue-tooth hands-free, Sun roof.

Worst Features

Customer Support outside the Warranty period. Next time maybe i'll buy a Korean Car that supports their product with a longer warranty. If Ford or Mazda only trust their cars for 3 years/36,000 miles - should I? So far they have proven NO! I also think the transmission is starting to slip!!
