Would be nice if this turned into a TSB. Going to a dealer with “I found a thread on a forum where some guy got his fixed” probably won’t work so well.
I’ve just been turning up the volume. I do still find it annoying after a year.
Stated that she couldn't proceed to Mazda when the sound was in all other similar vehicles.
I was going to say "Mine doesn't do that," but the NAs, the turbos and the diesels all have different transmissions.I had some problems , one was a high pitched noise/whine from 20-40mph
and one where the auto shift from 3rd to 2nd to 1st was strange
going from 20mph to 10mph you can feel the engine or trans pull the
cx5 speed down a lot , then at 10mph it releases , and it coasts normal after that.
I posted all this in another thread....
When I took it to the dealer the head mechanic drove with me , heard the 2 concerns that
I had, and said they all do that. He let me drive another cx5 and it made the
same noise and shift problem.
1400 miles later still have both problems..., it's like the reflection in the
windows, I've ignored it and that works sometimes..
Have to go to 1year free service check up in a few weeks, so might bring these
issues up again.......
These are the things that should manifest themselves in Engineering Change Notices. Buying brackets lined with an insulating material would do the trick.i emailed my contact at mazda corporate, hopefully there would be some fix or some notes they can forward to each dealer that experience this issue...will keep you posted if anything pops up
What was the outside temperature at the time?Good point about younger person. I'll give the dealership credit, the master tech grabbed a younger tech because his hearing was better. I'm 60 - so likely older than the master tech (35 years at the job) and I could hear it - but only because I knew what to listen for. But it was hard to hear today.
