There was a warning "chime" and then this message appeared on the instrument panel. "Front Radar Malfunction". The car was in the left lane on the PA turnpike going approximately 73 miles per hour. The car immediately began a rapid deceleration after the warning "chime". Automatic braking activated. The driver could not accelerate. Traffic was heavy with a trailer truck to the right and cars behind. There were no vehicles in front of the decelerating car. The vehicles behind were able to slow and avoided collision. We were forced to pull over in a very narrow center medium next to a large concrete divider. It was a very dangerous place to stop. The engine was turned off for approximately a minute. When it was started there were no messages and the driver had full control of the car. The car is available for inspection. The dealer will be contacted tomorrow. The car has been in service for 23 months and has been driven 12,200 miles. The road surface was wet from recent rain and the car had been driven through a downpour with water pooling on the road approximately 15 minutes before this incident.

1) It happened last week on 8/30, when I drove back home after work at night. After I parked my vehicle at the driveway and I had noticed there's smoke going into the cabin through the vent. The smell was very bad, it smells like burning rubber/plastic type. Then I went underneath the car and checked, the oil dripping out from the plastic panels where the oil pan is. Next morning, I jacked the car up and have a deeper inspection. I have notice the oil actually leaking from the Timing belt/chain cover area. I immediately called local dealership @ Putnam Mazda and drove it in for service on 8/31. When I arrived to the service department, my whole front end was full of smoke coming out from the hood. After a hour of inspection, service advisor told me that my car is having a blown cylinder #3 and oil leaks from cracked cylinder head. They will have to order a new cylinder head from Japan for my replacement, which will take more than 2 weeks or even longer due to part shortage. This is ridiculous!!! My car only have 21,500 miles on it, and it's a 2019 model year. The advisor told me they had quite a few were having the same issue. I guess he doesn't want to give me the exact numbers. But this is a safety concerns for other Mazda customers as well. I guess it has to do with the cylinder deactivation they put into the engine which cause this problem. The recalls that they had last year was not a fix or cure. 2) This is a safety concern and putting my life on risk, the oil leaks might cause fire or create accident on the road while operating. The smoke that I suck into my system may cause permanent damage to my lung and my health concern. 3) Problem had been confirmed with dealership. Mazda should declare a recall. You can't just wait for someone have an accident or cause their life to correct the issue. 4) The vehicle is at the servicer dept. and been inspected. 5) This is critical, I don't have any engine light or any indication. Even my scanner detected no code.

The center infotainment system operates by itself when driving at a low speed. The screen will automatically enter menus, place calls, and select items without any sort of input from the driver or passenger (ghost touch). The control knob, which is used to navigate the center screen, will not be functional whenever this happens. This ghost touch issue happens periodically, sometimes it goes away and sometimes the problem returns. Whenever the screen places calls or enters menus by itself, the driver is being distracted from the road and will have to focus on canceling whatever action the infotainment automatically decided to do. For example, I use Apple CarPlay for navigation but sometimes the screen will operate other functions by itself - I will have to manually click back to the navigation screen every time. A similar issue was found in the 2014-2016 MY of the Mazda3, which uses the exact same infotainment and controller setup as in the CX-5 products. I have provided a link to the relevant service bulletin here: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10164268-0001.pdf The system has not been examined by the manufacturer nor have there been any types of warning messages or lamps within the vehicle.

Oftentimes when driving at speeds of approximately 80mph or more, a loud whining/whistling noise appears. It appears to be coming from the area of driver side front door, passenger side front door, both front doors simultaneously. The issue has an earlier onset in the presence of crosswind, or headwind. I was able to record several videos where the noise can be heard very clearly. Some of these videos have been posted online: https://vimeo.com/547826873 https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/580602909 and the links have been shared both with my local Mazda dealership (Oak Tree Mazda by DGDG in San Jose, CA: 4250 Stevens Creek Blvd, San Jose, CA 95129) as well as with Mazda of North America. However, my complaints have been ignored as the dealership keeps stating that they are "unable to duplicate problem". There are several threads on two Mazda owners forums that describe this very issue with Mazda CX-5 in USA, Canada, as well as in Europe. This video from an owner in Germany shows the very same issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zykyoCIsItc&t=204s https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/index.php?threads/2019-cx-5-signature-whistling-noise-on-highway-or-high-speeds.123868506/page-2#post-6727077 https://www.mazdaworld.org/threads/cx-5-2018-version-high-pitched-squeal-whistle-like-noise.337073/#post-754625 According to one of the forum members, a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) R084/20 to address this issue has been issued by Mazda in Europe and Russian. The root cause has to do with door trim seals. Under the "CASUE", this TSB reads, "When driving under following conditions, a negative pressure generated on the doors pulls them outside. The counterforce exerted by the weatherstrips mounted on the doors is lower than the sucking force, resulting in weatherstrip vibration. -The vehicle is exposed to a side wind while driving at a speed higher than 160km/h -The vehicle is exposed to a strong side wind while driving at a speed higher than 120km/h."

When the system think there might be a collision and initiates a hard braking even when there might be enough space in front of you. Multiple times, the car behind me had to do a hard break as well not to hit me from behind. This also happens when switching lanes. As you are in the middle of switching, if sometimes thinks you are getting to close to the car in the original lane and it starts a hard break. Since I’m in between lanes, it causes the car on the other lane to do a hard break also, almost causing a chain accident. A google search revealed multiple people complaining of that. The system is too aggressive even at it’s lowest setting. Mazda informed me I can only turn it off one drive cycle at a time. This system has almost caused more accidents than it protected me from them.

Driving on highway, cruise control ser to 82, no cars in front. The car suddenly jolted twice, engine light and battery light comes, lost of power. Pulled over to shoulder in the middle of nowhere in Nevada. Tried to start the car, engine won't turn on, starter just kept cycling. Veh temp was just below 210 with a 1/4 tank of gas. Called dealership and service person asked is to use key to turn on car, no change and provided no other solution other than to take to dealership with the closest one being over 300 miles away. We decided to unhook and rebook the positive side of battery. Car restarted and currently driving it home as I write this complaint. 600 miles overdue for maintenance (by date due on July 26, 2021) and was scheduled upon return from trip which at the time should be approx 1000 miles over due.
