I would get in on it pretty quickly. More complaints coming in means more guys at Mazda taking note. At least call the dealer and let them know it's a problem. The weather stripping adhesive may help but won't cure the root cause and will fail again with time. The problem is the weatherstripping sticking to the painted part of the rear corner of the door when it gets hot. This constant tugging on the weatherstripping will cause it to fail pre-maturely and likely at a point when you are outside of warranty. Now if you don't ever use the back doors.. probably not worth it. I use mine 4+ times a day lol
