Has Anyone Else Observed these Quirks?

My CX 3 is less than a year old, and I am going to take it in to the dealership for these reasons:

-passenger light (red) has come on without passenger being seated (apart from miscellany small items on seat)
- door lock didn't engage until much past 40K
-vehicle dinging no maintenance or warning guide alert but the icon indicating engine was cold

I know this list isn't extensive but I wonder if its indicative of wrong things to come!
And, these are not consistent events.

Somebody else mentioned the passenger seat was sensitive, not sure what you mean about the door lock. You mean the drive away locking stopped working? Does the blue engine cold light come on when hot?

I have the auto locking doors upon driving as well, there may be a setting in the menu you will need to click. I am also having the same issue where my passenger light and warning sound come on when I even have something as small as 2lbs on the seat!! I don't want another airbag exploding if I am ever in an accident and there is nobody in that seat. I will be taking mine in soon to get it fixed.

Yes, my passenger seat light was on but only a few times, not consistently. What is the (weight) threshold that the light would go on indicating a passenger is present?

And I believe the door lock can be cycled on/off in settings but I haven't checked. The time it occurred was when I had been driving for awhile (over 10 km/p/h) and it suddenly clicked locked. Normally it does that just as I accelerate from parked.

I know there are multiple setting for the auto door locks, such as locking as soon as you put the car in D, or after hitting a certain speed. You may wanna check the settings.

I was told by Mazda UK that "there was no call for it"

Quite how they came to this conclusion I really don't know.

Still.................mustn't grumble

What a terrible excuse to not include a software-controlled option that's already developed and implemented for most of the rest of the world. It literally costs them nothing to implement besides being another laundry-list item the dealer techs might need to troubleshoot if it starts acting up. In fact, it probably costs them more to maintain a separate software release that has the feature removed.
