So, I recently purchased a 2017 Mazda CX-5 AWD. The vehicle currently has 3k miles on it. It has been a blast to drive, and I’ve had no issues until this afternoon.
I left work, and as I was backing out, I heard what I thought was a “pop” sound. It wasn’t very loud, and no dummy lights cAme on, so I decided to just proceed home.
About a mile down the road, I heard a loud “Squealing” as I started drive from a stop light. The noise got louder as speeds picked up. I immediately stopped as soon as I could turn off. I check all of the wheels for damage, etc. everything looked great. At this point, I turned the wheel in the opposite direction (it was coming from the left side). After doing that, it stopped, and started driving like nothing happened. Also, everything is still working fine - lane departure warning, etc.
I called Mazda and it goes on Friday. They were dumbfounded on the phone. I did wash my vehicle yesterday, but it is in the high 30’s and it was parked in the garage all night. I am not sure if that was the problem? The car was completely dry when I left this morning.
Any thoughts? I’m afraid I’ll be left stranded.
