Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Liftgate


Never allow a person to ride in the luggage compartment:

Allowing a person to ride in the luggage compartment is dangerous.

The person in the luggage compartment could be seriously injured or killed during sudden braking or a collision.

Do not drive with the liftgate open:

Exhaust gas in the cabin of a vehicle is dangerous. An open liftgate in a moving vehicle will cause exhaust gas to be drawn into the cabin. This gas contains CO (carbon monoxide), which is colorless, odorless, and highly poisonous, and it can cause loss of consciousness and death.

Moreover, an open liftgate could cause occupants to fall out in an accident.


Be careful not to apply excessive force to the damper stay on the liftgate such as by putting your hand on the stay. Otherwise, the damper stay may bend and affect the liftgate operation.

Opening and Closing the Liftgate

Opening the liftgate with Electric liftgate opener

Press the electric liftgate opener on the liftgate, and then raise the liftgate when the latch releases

While the ignition is switched ON, the liftgate can be opened only when the vehicle is stopped with the parking brake applied (manual transaxle), or with the selector lever in the P position (automatic transaxle).


(With the advanced keyless function)

A locked liftgate can also be opened while the key is being carried.

When using the advanced keyless function to open the liftgate, it may require a few seconds for the liftgate to unlock after the electric liftgate opener is pressed.

The liftgate can be closed when the doors are locked with the key left in the vehicle. However, to prevent leaving the key in the vehicle, the liftgate can be opened by pressing the electric liftgate opener.

When the liftgate is unlocked by pressing the electric liftgate opener, the liftgate raises slightly to allow it to be opened. If the liftgate is not operated for a certain period of time after the electric liftgate opener has been pressed, the liftgate cannot be raised any more from its slightly raised position. Press the electric liftgate opener again to fully open the liftgate. To close the liftgate from its slightly raised position, open it first by pressing the electric liftgate opener, and waiting for 1 second or longer then close it.

The door-ajar warning light will illuminate if the liftgate is not fully closed.

The sound of the latch may be heard for a few seconds after the electric liftgate opener has been pressed, however, this does not indicate a malfunction.

Closing the liftgate

To close, lower the liftgate slowly using the liftgate grip recess, and then push the liftgate closed using both hands.

Do not slam it. Pull up on the liftgate to make sure it is secure.
