problem #3

Aug 302017

CX-5 AWD Grand Touring 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles

The vehicle revs really high and will not shift. It's like you press the gas pedal down to the floor without your foot on the gas pedal. It is very scary. It happened two different times on my way to work - which is only 7 miles.

CX-5 Grand Touring

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles

One morning car would not go. You would floor it and nothing would happen. The entire transmission had to be replaced. I barely had 10k miles on it.

problem #1

Mar 202016

CX-5 Grand Touring 184 Hp 2.4L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles

My car would not engage in drive after I stopped at a light. The engine was revving really high and was lurching forward as if it was having hiccups. It finally engaged but I did not feel safe at all. Luckily there were no cars ahead or behind me because I would have gotten hit from the front and the back. I will bring my car to the dealers tomorrow!!!!
