problem #2

Mar 302018

CX-5 Grand Touring 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,300 miles

This is the first vehicle in over 40 years that rotors were bad. (Warped at 45K) have never replaced rotors on any vehicle I owned. All vehicles had at least 150k when I purchased a replacement vehicle. At 70k issue again, can't turn rotors just replace $$$$. Mazda has bad material in their rotors and will not fess up. Or bad ventilation to disperse heat. There are a lot of CX-5's with this issue i have seen on the web. Mazda keeps saying driving patterns cause this. (Standard answer by all at Mazda employees I spoke with) How can that be when this is the first vehicle I have ever experienced this issue.

CX-5 Touring 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,900 miles

THE MAZADA DEALER TURNED THE ROTORS VERSUS REPLACING THEM. TURNING THEM WILL COST ME IN THE LONG RUN, BECAUSE I WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THEM SOONER. ROTORS SHOULD NOT WARP AT 5900 MILES ON ANY CAR.
