Mazda Mazda5 ProblemsRattle From Rear Suspension Due to Loose Stabilizer Bar Links
A Loose rear stabilizer bar link can cause a rattling noise from the rear suspension while driving on rough roads. Our technicians tell us if the rear stabilizer bar and links are not found to be loose, there are updated sway bar bushings available which should correct 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.
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.

Mazda Mazda5 RecallsMazda Recalls 2009–2010 Mazda 5 Vehicles Due to Possible Water Corrosion in Fuel Pump
Mazda is recalling 2009–2010 Mazda 5 models due to moisture in the fuel pump electrical connector, which may result in corrosion and connector pin failure. Pin failure may cause stalling or a no-start condition. Dealers will inspect the fuel pump connector and repair or replace the affected wire harness if necessary.
Mazda is recalling 2007–2009 Mazda 3 and Mazda 5 vehicles due to a sudden loss of power steering assist that can occur at any time. A sudden loss of power steering assist adversely affects the driver's ability to steer the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Starting in September 2010, Mazda will mail notification letters to owners with information about the recall.
The sliding door latch mechanisms may experience water intrusion, allowing the latch mechanism to freeze in cold weather. At this time, only vehicles in cold weather states are being recalled for this issue. When the door is opened, the latch pawl may remain in the open position and not latch properly when closed. Since the door may open unexpectedly while driving, an unbelted occupant could be ejected from the vehicle. Dealers will replace the sliding door latches to correct this concern. The Mazda recall number is 4306K.
