It's the seals around the doors; they pull off in some conditions. They replace the seals and the clips on the end; the problem is that if the clip fails it leave a nasty open metallic channel in the trim which could snag your arm when you get into the car.

I never had it happen but they changed all the trim pieces on mine; I thought it was a bit odd for a recall, but.... heh, they're going to do it, why not let 'em.

I forgot to mention how much I like the driver's seat. It's a lot more curved than I'm used to, but it seemed to cup me perfectly like I was in some sort of cockpit. And it was just firm enough to feel a little race-y but soft enough to be quite comfortable.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

good point. I prefer Acura's seats though - Mazda should take note. Mazda's seats are snug but only for smaller frames. I'm 6'3 and 220LB, and the seat is a little too thin for me and the lumbar support isn't quite optimal. They're not bad seats for larger frames, but they could have done better.

Good point you made about the interior though. It feels really sporty and snug yet comfortable at the same time.

And a 3 wagon would be amazing.
Insurance rates for one. When I compared rates while looking in 2015, insurance on a 3 wagon was actually 15% higher than a 6 sedan. No idea why, either.

It's a function of who buys them, how often they wreck 'em, and how much the parts cost to fix 'em WHEN they are wrecked.
