Excessive paint chipping. I have the soul red (v46) paint. It was purchased on 06jun2020 and has only 2,000 miles but it has 3 large chips. Most of the miles are just going to the store. I work from home so i don't drive but a couple days a week.
Mazda smart braking system, front radar warning lights come on after car is started. Windshield and front emblem is clean. No intense heat. Comes on every time when started. Will not allow cruise control to be set. Sometimes a funny brake pedal feel when applied but does not brake by itself.... Yet. There have been tsbs on earlier models with a replacement front camera(fsc) fix. My car does have the? New? Camera but is obviously not functioning properly.
Ghost touch- radio/audio center randomly switches modes, stations, functions and will access phone contacts via bluetooth and make random voice calls. Once connected, it is very difficult to disconnect. Often times the call will be repeated several times. This occurs both while sitting still or when driving. It is very distracting to try to disconnect random voice calls while driving. The steering wheel buttons are not effective in trying to disconnect. You must cancel the call on the actual phone in violation of hands-free laws in the state of georgia.
REAR BUMPER MARKER IS NOT DONE PROPERLY BECAME DETACHED WHILE STATIONARY. MY FRIEND HAS THIS CX-5 2017 AND SAME THING HAPPENED TO HIS CAR.
My tire pressure indicator light was triggered on when i drove the car for about 40 mph. I stopped at a parking lot and i noticed the rear right wheel was literally smoking. Later i went to a local shop and i was told the brake was overheated on the rear right side. My local shop replaced the rotor and pads, however, the overheat problem kept showing up on that right rear side. I did some research online and it seems to be a common problem with the parking brake dragging for 2016 cx5. So i stopped using the parking brake and the overheating problem was gone. However, the parking brake is still defective and causes overheat if used.
