Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    Sounds like something isn't adjusted quite right. My guess is that shouldn't be hard to diagnose and fix.

    Thanks for posting - we ran into the same issue. Taking it back to the dealer to repair.

    I just ran into the same problem with my 2014 Touring model. Really frustrating. Has anyone had any resolution from Mazda regarding this?

    Had this same issue on my 2014 Mazda CX5 Touring. Seems as though the release latch in the seat back itself is the culprit. Pressing really hard on the rear release lever (in the cargo well) released it. So the issue is still happening & my thanks for taking the time to post this.
