Apologies guys it's got to go. Considering Mazda doesn't want to know about safety issues I'm selling the CX-5 as been offered more than I paid for it by several dealers.  Looking at an EV or Hybrid not sure which atm.

Update. Mazda dealership could not find a issue, apparently unless it recorded on the car system it didn't happen even though there were two other people that saw it had moved.
 
Contacted Mazda UK via email so it would be registered and printable, they are of the same opinion as the garage which I'm not surprised about.  I done as much as I can for now and have put any liability with Mazda UK.  I do hope this is an isolated incident.

I'm going to pull the electrical connectors and use some dielectric and refit.

I totally agree with you, it's definitely a car defect. My driving instructor always taught me to leave a car in first gear, when parking somewhere, and I assumed that everybody was advised to do this while learning to drive.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and I hope your dealership sorts it out promptly.

There is a bigger issue here.  It's a Mazda problem I would assume the same system is used on most electric handbrake Mazda vehicles and it may cause an injury or worse.  I have notified my dealer and they are looking into it, if they do not find a fault it will be their liability if it happens again also notifying DVSA/VOSA about this problem may spur Mazda on.


I have been using my gears for the moment but this is not the answer.

I would recommend that you always leave your car in 1st gear and never trust a handbrake.

Only time this happened to me was a old vauxhall astra mk3. Mine travelled about 300 feet and 450 quid for new bumper and bonnet, wing. Would you say that the brakes were warm after your journey? Only issue i have had was on the 2016 sport nav,  the handbrake needed a new module as handbrake wasnt releasing both sides at the same time. Leave your drive wheels turned into kerb till you get it sorted please update how you get on. Thanks

CX-5 / Predictive path/trajectory missing from new 2021 CX-5
« Last Post by Bobo on January 03, 2022, 11:22:47 am »
I have just traded in my 2019 CX-5 sport nav for a 2021 CX-5 sport and I have noticed that the Predicted path or vehicle trajectory is now missing from the reversing camera view is this something Mazda has removed /firmware update? Does anyone know if it is possible to get this back?
