2006 Mazda Mazda5 Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2006 Mazda Mazda5 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
Rattling noises from the front suspension while driving over rough roads can be caused by defective front sway bar bushings. Replacing the bushings with the updated design is a common repair.
Internal failure of the ignition switch may create a condition where the key reminder continues to chime even though the key is removed. In addition, the doors cannot be locked with the keyless entry system. Replacing the ignition switch with an updated switch is the typical repair.
Some models may have a problem with stalling under light acceleration. Updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available which may help with this concern.
