Buzzing with acceleration; ? electrical issue?
By pgkuma on


2013 Mazda CX-5 Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Just bought a silver Sport manual 1 month ago.
One COLD night, the car wouldn't start (1 week old!).
AAA noted battery had lost a minimal amount of charge (windows and lights worked fine).
Then all the warning lights came on at once when tried to start.
He reprogrammed something by using the key in the door.
Started right after that, but seemed to run a bit more sluggishly.
Next day, the dealer looked it over.
Erased and reprogrammed the computer and replaced the battery.
No problems since then.
Wife noted a REALLY subtel buzzing ("cricket-like") from driver dash area, when pushing the gas.
Have to turn radio off to hear it.

Best Features

Gas mileage (31+mgp in ~70/30 hwy/city). Handling.

Worst Features

Manual in all trims. Add the extra hp in 2014 Sport level. Leather and other more luxury options for Sport level. Make more Manuals available (there were only about 3 manuals avail in 7 state region). More color options for manuals.
