    What you are describing could possibly be a blown shock. If so, it is possible the leaking hydraulic fluid will be visible on the shock body.

    Cylinder Deactivation Update

    As the manual suggests, like the engine and transmission, the brakes are to be bedded in/broken in gently for the first 600 miles. Avoiding hard stopping unless absolutely necessary. I would give your brand new car some time to break in. Check your tire PSI to get a start point.

    Need Help Diagnosing - Bad Engine/Transmission Mount?

    Before throwing any $$$ at it, please verify all of the COWL bolts are tight. I have seen a few others chasing a mysterious knock/tap/clunk from the 2013-2015 range that is solved with a cowl bolts torque check. There is a TSB out there / on here for the proper torque and bolts affected.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding I never said they were a failure point on a 2014, however they are a common failure point and cause of rough idling issues on any of the Mazdas that use the hydraulic motor mounts post 2004

    Need help - '14 CX-5 rough engine idle after replacing spark plugs

    I agree... I would not be messing with the plugs again, or bother removing to check gap. Because you disconnected the battery, the car will have to relearn fuel mapping. Extra vibrations at idle in park can be caused by failed motor mounts. Out of curiosity, did this all happen after the...

    Crazy pricing on 2019 Signatures?

    My Toyota dealer friend was down to just 50 cars, out of a usual 300 car supply. He just told me that this week they are finally shipping fresh supply in.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    If you have test driven both, you should know what model you need. You really can not go wrong with either, but from reading your long term stand point and not needing turbo, I would steer you towards the GT.
