Mazda Mazda5 Problem Report
Mazda Mazda5 Vibration/Noise Due to Failed Engine Mount
On some models, excessive engine vibration or knocking noises heard while the engine is idling, being started or switched off are usually caused by a defective engine mount at the top right side of the engine. A redesigned engine mount is available to alleviate this problem.
06 mazda5 vibrating at 45kmph. Shop said over $800 to replace engine mounts 3 and 4.

Dang, again, just seeing this site for the first time... but, it seems like my Mazda 5 is having all the same issues. Had to have my motor mounts replaced. - Visitor
Our 2006 Mazda 5 normally runs very quietly but suddenly began making loud engine buzzing/vibration noises when at idle or low speeds. Higher speeds resulted in less noise but the noise/vibration was still there. I first suspected an exhaust leak but within a day or two the noise/vibration grew to be too much to be just an exhaust leak. I took it into a shop I trust and was told a motor mount was broken. The shop recommended I replace all three mounts at once at a cost of $840 (including labor and their "diagnostic" work).
My wife's 2004 Mazda 6 (also with the same 2.3l 4-cyl engine as my 2006 Mazda 5) began exhibiting the same noise, (though much less noisy) the week prior. - Visitor
When I took my 2007 Mazda 5 in for another problem, they told me my engine mount had been replaced under warrentee. Car was quieter and handeled better after that. - Visitor
I just had to have a broken motor mount changed yesterday. I see that some people are being told it will cost $800 or more. I personally would look around. The part I purchased was $156. I had multiple maintenance items taken care of at the same time, including brakes and I paid less than $500 for everything. Just beware of how much in total labor a garage is charging you. I am fortunate enough to have found a small locally owned garage that is honest and does good work. It might be worth shopping around and trying to find a shop that is not a dealer or chain. - julesskip

I just got my 2010 mazda 3 a year and a half ago when it was at 39k miles, just took it in for it's 15k checkup and things looked good, usual stuff except being told a motor mount was leaking and needed to be replaced. Estimated about $249 for that part of the work. Not too bad... at least at the dealership I know that it's being done right and the work is warrantied. - Visitor
I have fluid leaking from the engine mount of my 2009 Mazda5. I have never seen an engine mount leak fluid. This sucks royally! - Visitor
I replaced engine mounts May 2011. I just had the car oil change and inspection. They said the engine mounts need replacing again and warranty is only a eighteen months on previous part. I was out of luck at 20 months. - Visitor
