    Just got a 2017 mazda3 (2.5L touring hatchback with navigation) and everything is great, except an issue with the blind spot monitoring system. It works for the first 8-10 minutes of the drive perfectly, then it just turns off. When I go into the infomation system, it says it's still turned on...

    I have a 2018 Mazda 3 GT (USA). My sideview mirrors have blindspot monitoring. Is it possible to add power folding mirrors to this? I see kits online to add it to normal mirrors but nothing for mirrors that have blindspot monitoring built-in.

    The left one on my new car works fine, but the right side sometimes does not cancel after the blind spot is well clear of traffic. Eventually, the warnings go away, but so far I can't find any pattern. Any ideas?

    This happened to me only once so far but wondering if anyone else has had this happen. The other day I had my blind spot trigger and stay active even after there was nothing in the other lane. The light stayed on for about a mile with no traffic on either side of the vehicle until it finally...

    I have a 2014 Mazda 3 Touring and my first mod was dropping a sub in. I had it installed professionally at a reputable place and it sounds amazing.. EXCEPT for this darn plastic housing for my blindside detection. Just about every note my sub bangs out rattles the housing and it is ruining my...

    Has anyone had to have their blind spot monitoring system repaired? My BSM light started flashing at me while I was driving on a highway that was torn up...like they do when they are re-paving. I thought the vibration from the road might have just loosened something but neither I nor my...

    One thing i find annoying about my 3 BM hatch is checking ur blind spot on the opposite side to the driver. It feels like there is a large area between the back window and rear side window that is not visible. My prevous cars have been sedans and never really had that issue. Does anyone else...

    Finds an acorn once in a while !! I ordered some window deflectors from one of the lower priced vendors ($39 a set as opposed to Mazda's $170 set) and they came today. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package and found 2 complete sets within - he shoots, he scores!!! Anyway, I...

    Does anyone know if the Blind Spot Monitoring feature interferes with the Valentine1 radar detector?

    I have 2014 GT. It has Blind spot monitoring, but it also seems to detect vehicles come from rear sides when I'm backing out. Does anybody know how this work? Are there some hidden sensors in the bumper? Sometimes it beeps, other times it doesn't. Not sure what the trigger or calibration is.

    For the past couple days, my infotainment system has finally started to show signs of the glitches mentioned in the 100's of other threads (v.29 here), but I found this one to be of particular concern... I started the car to head to work and first thing I noticed was the system claiming it...
