So my 2016 cx3 which I got in December of 2015 has about 7000ish miles and Ive been going sparingly to the service department for oil changes since it is not used much. Today I received an email from mazda saying I am due for a service/liftgate recall etc , pretty much the same generic email you get for service reminders except for the fact where they said I have 7213 miles which was exactly the mileage from yesterday morning. Considering the last time I was at the dealer was January-Feb to fix the infotainment cold temp restarting issue, there is absolutely no way they could assume my mileage given its random times and distances that it is driven through the year. Which leads me to believe that the car is transmitting to mazda's servers whenever it is turned on. I get that gps connectivity would be transmitting location to sat servers for it to work and radio mainly is receiving signals(I dont use sirius sat radio) so this seems a little unusual given the data transmitted. Does anyone have any information regarding this by any chance?
