Default Vibration - front right side dash and/or door

Looking for thoughts, experience, input... I've had my CX-5 for about 3 weeks, and had a wickedly annoying sound at the left driver's side (see my other post for the solution). As that was getting worse, there started to be a lot of excess creaking and vibration coming from the right side dashboard and door. Obviously worse over bumps, and seems to get worse at higher speeds.

At first I thought it just might be the settling of the molded plastic dash, or the vibration of the side mirror, but it has become a little much.

Any other similar experiences, solutions, remedies?

Nothing I've noticed in 1600 miles. (I have the Sport manual like you.)

I've got 6500 mi now and I have noticed something going on in both the far left driver's side dash and the driver's door. It's only on some roads, at some speeds.

I'm obsessive about noises, so I haven't been assertive at the dealer yet. I might go in myself just for fun.

If anyone has a link to the service manual, let me know. I'll get in there and see what's up.

There is a known fault which has recently shown up in RH drive CX5s here in New Zealand. Its a problem with two layers of body/frame steel squeaking/groaning against each other. There is a Tech Bulletin out for it, but I haven't read it yet.

This maybe your problem. Contact your local Mazda dealer. I'm guessing you get 3yrs warranty on new cars in your country?
