Very good information, thank you for the details. I'm happy to read the NHTSA one, it sounds very logical, the tests in Europe and Japan are very extensive.
With regards to toxicity, I won't open a can of worms, but if it was really a BIG issue I think there would be more noise everywhere (TV, Internet, etc.)
I'll keep mum now...

So, would you think that was one of the defect of this car ? Because when I bought my car in 2007 and no body(dealer) tell me about this even the operation/maitenance manual and car specification note the door ajar warning function. Can I claim this to Mazda Co. ? Will it success ?
Because as I know all of the cars with liftgate/rear hatch without such problem.

Here is what the manuals say for both models:
2006: This warning light comes on when any door isn't securely closed
2008: This warning light illuminates when any door is not securely closed
If it works for all doors (except the liftgate) there is not too much evidence in the manual I would say (i.e.the term "liftgate" or "trunk" is not there).
Now, if its really critical for you give Mazda USA a call, and tell them that at least you know that it works on the 2008s. Not sure how much it would help, but at least you tried (www.mazdausa.com)

Mine does that (2008 GT). Maybe they changed it in 2008 model.
