    Anyone Solve vibration on acceleration?

    2015 cx-5 gt. I enjoy the car. But I get that occasion vibration through the wheel and auto shifter when accelerating through 2-3k rpms aggressively. No real vibration at other times. I know this has been posted before.

    It wasn't there on the test drive. The car was bought used at 60k miles. I was wondering what others have done to solve this?

    Thanks.

    Is it a large vibration you can capture on video or something light?
    If it's just light, try crc gdi intake cleaning and changing spark plugs first
    If it's heavy then either engine/trans mount or a CV axel bad

    This might sound stupid but it*s inbetween light and large vibration. It feels like a resonant vibration.

    Have you driven another cx5 to see if it's normal. There is a slight amount if engine nvh in these frist gens. Crc intake cleaning andplugs do help

    I understand that it*s a bit unrefined, but this is an abnormal vibration that feels different for like a second, usually in the lowest register of the 2nd gear.

    My '16 Mazda6 had bad vibration when accelerating upslope from stop.
    I added strut bar to tame the resonation, which helps, but it is still present.
    At mild acceleration, it is normal.
    My '14 Mazda3 (sGT w/ same 2.5L engine) and '17 CX5 do not exhibit this issue at all.
    I am at a lost. I just live with it.
