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. Called dealer, they thought it was caused by brake pad locking up in bracket; said they would replace pads and turn rotors-covered under warranty. Turned out it was the brake calipers - dealer recommended the caliper maintenance service, which was not covered under warranty. Ever since, I now hear a squealing noise from that wheel whenever I back the vehicle. Quickly depressing brake usually gets noise to stop.

I was shocked to find that my rear brakes had worn out before my front brakes. The front brakes show about 50% wear but the rear brakes had went metal to metal. Being a former mechanic it was nothing for me to replace the brakes myself. I used premium parts for the repair and expect them to last longer than the OEM.
