#343 of 499 Noice Belt Clattering sound in back of CX5
Oct 10, 2012 (3:47 pm)
I purchased a Mazda CX5 Grand Touring In August of 2012. Recently I was hearing a seat belt clattering sound in the back cabin. I took it in to service and they said the back seat was out of allignment. They claimed they fixed it but two days later it is making the same sound. All the seat belts are secure however I still hear this clattering when I go over bumps. Any ideas?

I had the same noise and you should take it to the dealer. In the CX-5 there is a horn in the back right quarter panel it is for the alarm system. I had the same noise and they told me that the horn had become loose. The fix it and no noise anymore. The sound should be coming from the right side of the vehicle rear seat cargo area. Sound like metal on metal noise.

Thank you. Any suggestions at this point is certainly appreciated. This noise is driving me crazy. I have a appointment on Tues. I will with no doubt mention about the horn. The sound is coming from the exact area you are talking about.
#346 of 499 Engine revs on its own

I've had my CX-5 for 5 months and since getting it, when attempting to get to highway speed, the engine sometimes revs but the car does not go faster - then I could just be coasting along and it revs and the car goes faster. 2 days ago I drove home from work with no issues, parked the car for 1 hour and went back out. I got a block away and the tire pressure light and the traction control light came on. The engine started to rev but the car would not go faster than 10 mph - I drove back around the block home and when stopping could feel vibrations in the breaks. I called Mazda service and they said to bring the car in, I did not feel safe to drive the car to them. The next morning started the car and drove it to Mazda with no problems. They checked the car and found nothing wrong, they checked the computer and found no errors which had occurred. I am not crazy and there is something wrong with the car but I would have to get it into Mazda while it is occurring for them to find the problem. Has anyone else had similar issues with their CX-5?

In my 7400 miles of ownership I have nothing comparable to report. So far nothing but zoomzoom

Have a smart phone or a camera/camcorder handy in the car. Next time it happens, take a video of the dash so you can show the service dept.

I had a similar problem last month. I've owned my CX-5 for 4 months. When I was driving on the highway, it felt and sounded like the car downshifted on its own and then I realized I had no use of the gas pedal. I was quickly slowing down while cars were buzzing by. All the warning lights were on (transmission, tire pressure, tire traction, oil). When I finally came to safe stop off of the highway I turned the engine off, and then turned it on again. The gas pedal was working again, but the warning lights were still on. I made it home five minutes later but didn't want to drive it to the dealer on the highway. They had the emergency roadside assistance pick it up that night. The technicians didn't know what was wrong. I read on another forum someone who had a similar problem, and that the techs updated the software in the car. When I told my tech about this, they discovered that my car required an update on one part of the software, and a few other errors were cleared out. The car is working fine ever since.

Thanks, I knew I wasn't crazy. Since the day I did take it for service and they couldn't find anything wrong, I have not felt the car do this anymore. Makes me think that they did do something but did not tell me about it. Hopefully it will not happen again.
But I do want to let everyone knows how good the gas mileage is on this car. I live on the east coast (Staten Island) and after this hurricane gas is a rare find. I work in NJ and stopped the 1st week to fill up, I have not had to go back for gas again yet. I am hoping by the time I need it, the shortage will be over. You really do get great mileage, prior to this I had a CX-7 and was putting about $80 a week in gas, it is actually half with this car.
