2014 Mazda CX-5 Owner Comments

CX-5 4-cyl

  • 8,090 miles


On July 4, 2014, approximately 10:15 P.M., I was driving about 35 mph when the engine rpms were far above the speed I was traveling. I let off the accelerator, coasting down a hill. At the bottom of the hill was an intersection. After a brief stop for traffic, I pressed the accelerator. The engine responded and the power train or transmission did not. I moved the shift lever to neutral and back to drive; the result was the same. I then tried moving the shift lever to M for manual. The M showed but no gear was indicated. I moved the shift to neutral and had the car pushed to a parking lot. I moved the shift to reverse and the reverse worked. I moved the shift back to both drive (D) and M and again the car engine accelerated but the transmission did not engage. I shut the car off a couple of minutes. When I started the car back up, R worked, then D worked. I began to drive again and the transmission responded sluggishly at first but then started to operate normally through city and highway speeds. I took the vehicle to the dealer for service on July 5 and explained the situation. I also explained history, including from May 2014 when I took the vehicle in for service at just over 5000 miles. I explained at that time that there was one incident when I was traveling 65 mph in a 75 mph zone, with the accelerator to the floor and the car would not go faster. Another CX5 passed me on the highway even though I was traveling alone and the other vehicle had more passengers. On several occasions, I have noticed that the car engine will race beyond the speed I am going when in D for drive. Additionally, the car regularly hesitates to pick up speed when the accelerator is pressed. The dealer service department checked in May 2014 and said they found nothing and the things I was experiencing were normal for "skyactive" technology.
