Default Suspension squeak in cold weather

I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem. During fairly cold weather (20 deg or less) the suspension squeaks pretty good when going over a bumb at a decent spead. Not sure if it is coming from the front or read but am leaning towards the rear. Had it in the dealer yesterday and of course they were not able to reproduce the condition (it was around 50 deg...of course they couldn't). Thanks.

It's normal on these cars, not an issue really.

I have been having a weird squeak coming from what I believe is the front drive side. It only happens when I go over a bump in the road such as an uneven section. It has started within the last 100 miles and I cant figure it out. The squeak is similar to the sound a gerbil wheel going around. That is the best way I can describe it. Any ideas??

yeah the car Squeaks from all four corners its the bushings, at -15 Celsius you hear the car creak over bumps. At -22C it squeaks over every expansion joint or just plain anything on the road!! All Northern dealers know about this but their is no current solution to it.

As one person said in another thread upgraded to grease-able bushings, or if your Mazda Canada just say that their is no defect in Mazda materials or workmanship and deny any sort of warranty claim without even looking at the problem.

p.s I think this will be my next fight with MCI as its annoying as fuck when driving up north to go snowboarding with the wind chill at -38C at times. Its relentless!!! LMAO
