    Poll: My CX-5 transmission failed and was replaced

    I will future-proof this poll as well a few years out as well. If your CX-5 transmission was replaced by your dealer report it here. I have no issues with mine but occasional threads pop up so lets see some numbers.

    Responses are public.

    Dontchya' think this is kind of like beating a dead horse Kedis? I know you're obsessed with potential mechanical failure/reliability, but you read this forum as much as anyone. How many reports of transmission replacement have you seen here?

    Probably true... I guess if nothing else we can link back to this poll with the very few reported failures to support stance that issues are few and far between....

    They should also post the MANUFACTURING DATE if they had a failure.

    Yes, we're quite aware of that. It's posted in no less than three threads!

    I collected many transmission replacement reports since last November for you from this CX-5 community alone. And these are only from 2016 Mazda CX-5's (one Mazda6) and all of them seemed starting with shift delay without warning:

New transmission was being authorized as I left with a loaner. So no hoops. Not pleased with needing such a major component this quickly but at least they're doing the right thing in getting it taken care of. I forgot to note the serial number but if it's listed on the paperwork I'll post it here.

    Today I drop the car to the dealer and I will leave the car their for couple of days then let see what they will update me.

How common are for this transmission to just fail at low miles? Should I just try to get out of this lease?

    To me, the poll assumes that this is a wide-spread problem. Shouldn't there be an option of "My transmission has not failed."?

    Unfortunately poll edits are locked out so cannot add a "no-issue" to poll.

    I am really not seeing widespread issues with these transmissions being reported and feel unit is quite reliable overall. Other automakers have some significant AT issues that are easily found when searching. I am sensitive to the issue though as I have been bit by AT failures in other makes throughout my life.

    The only Mazda in my past that had an AT failure was in the '87 626 that my parents bought new. It was the first year of Mazda's electronically controlled AT and it failed within the first year of ownership. It was replaced under warranty and never failed again in over 20 years & 200K+ miles of ownership.

    Went to the nhtsa website. 17 power train complaints on the 2016 CX-5, 43 total complaints. In comparison 2 total complaints 2016 rv-4.

    Having said that 4000 miles on mine and I still love itAT still performing perfectly and been the most trouble free new car I've ever bought.

    Where is the DID NOT FAIL in the poll? It is a meanness poll and it is statically useless without the additional input. If 30 report full replacement and Mazda sold 1,25,000 vehicles with that AT+
    then the percentage of failures is 0.002%.
