Most electrical items have failed

I purchased my Mazda 6 sky active after waiting 6 weeks due to the product recall and have had nothing but problems! The first day I drove it the iELOOP system stopped charging and there was a very strong burning smell. The iEloop system didn't work again till the next day! Also that first night the automatic headlights failed to work! There was also an issue with the audio system as my phone would not and still doesn't connect through USB unless you listen to the radio for 5 mins before! Since then all the electric windows have failed, the automatic door locking has failed and keeps not locking the car when you walk away, the Bluetooth system has crashed, the windscreen wipers have failed to work and there has always been a very strong burning smell whenever the iELOOP system stops charging. When the iELOOP system stops charging my range/miles till empty figure drops by approximately 80 miles in a few seconds and my MPG average drops by about 3 miles instantly! The car has been in and out of the garage for 3 months and has never worked! My dealer is really helpful but Mazda still haven't been to inspect it and instead offered me advice on my driving ability! My car is once again in the garage and I am driving another Mazda 6 sky active owned by the dealership and that has now had the CEL (check engine light) come on. I advise strongly against anyone buying this car! I think it's been brought out too early and hasn't been tested! There are obvious over heating issues to which the iELOOP system would appear to have a thermal cut out installed to stop it working during this time! If you allow the car to cool it starts charging instantly! The original issue with the recall was due to a faulty part within the DC Converter and caused interference with the audio system and could cause over heating. This to my understanding has not been fixed with the recall! Please be aware and let me know if anyone is suffering the same problem?
