I have no leaks on my 2014 CX5. I follow directions and clean the surface of the pan where the new washer sits and tighten the plug to 25 LB/FT.

thats what i figured, you follow the maint directions and you should have no leaks!

That may be, but this part seems unusually finicky for a simple drain plug. I believe it has to do with the ultra-thin sealing washer that is used on the SkyActiv pan. On two previous Miatas I used the same washer for well over 100k miles each, never worried about torque and never had a leak. Only difference was the washer was twice as thick as the one on this engine.

Heres a Youtube vid on installing a Fumoto valve on a CX-5.

The dealer has changed my oil twice and I've changed it once myself - no leaks, not even a drop.

My guess is some people are not torqueing the drain plug sufficiently.
