Cracked windshield, like many others. The glass is very thin, as intended, to keep the weight down, as per SkyActiv agenda. It gets cracked around the same area for most of the owners, sensor cluster on the top passenger side. Mazda Canada has denied the fact that this is stress crack, but that's the fact nevertheless, as it appeared while the car was standing still parked, and we were sitting on the park bench across. Right before our eyes. We have our insurance company's authorization to replace it, but will be waiting until it splits, or the fall, due to our deductible.

Ignition system went totally haywire. Got "Keyless system malfunction" error codes (no start), OBD codes relating to ABS and SBCS systems, throttle bottle and starter clicking constantly after the car was turned off. Most concerningly it ended up devolving into a situation where we could not turn off the engine without pulling a fuse. The car would cycle through "off," accessory, and on modes inside (gauges, accessories, etc.), but the engine remained on and running the whole time. I was able to usually return the car to a drivable by disconnecting the battery and waiting long enough for the ECU to reset. The vehicle spent days at the dealer but they were unable to find anything wrong. We ended up trading the vehicle in for another brand. Some research I did indicated it might be related to multiple TSBs related to the ignition system for 2013-early 2014 CX-5s. The car was unsafe...should've been a recall.

After driving home from work, rear passenger tire was hot to touch and there was distinct smell of hot metal.

Ever since, I now hear a squealing noise from that wheel whenever I back the vehicle. Quickly depressing brake usually gets noise to stop.

Original battery is one month out of warrantee and new one is prorated based on three years. Left car for 20 days and would not start when I returned. Had Mazda road service jump twice and tested it at 2 cells working. Dealer replacing. Dealer is still testing battery after 3 hrs, says that Mazda requires full test in order to replace under warranty. This is totally unacceptable and I will be filing a complaint directly to Mazda.
