Mazda Mazda5 Problems

Stalling Under Light Acceleration

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.

Rattle 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.

Vibration/Noise Due to Failed Engine Mount

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.

Mazda Mazda5 Reviews

I really like the Mazda 5! It is not to big, it drives and handles like a sports car, it has been very reliable, and it is very practical. I hope Mazda keeps building this great car for a long time.
Van functionality with car handling. Consistently get 27+ mpg. Will suite our family of 4 for years. Comfortable ride and relatively quiet on the highway. Has plenty of pep. If you need more go, just push the pedal harder. Haha. 4 cylinders don't have much torque, but do perform well when revved up, so don't be afraid of using the gas pedal.
Had this mini for 3yrs. Was not impressed with it. Underpowered motor and gas mi only was 24mpg hwy. interior was plastic that scratched easy. It handeled well and was maintenance free for 32k mi. The tires were very expensive and did not wear well from the factory.
