I absolutely loved this car. I didn't know how much I loved it until I totaled it and had to get a different car. Everything about it was great. I wish more car manufacturers made cars that had blind side monitors. They added an extra sense of security. Great sound system also. When I totaled it, it had about 105,000 miles on it (I bought it brand new) and it never needed any repairs. The only negative that I will have to say is that the key battery drained quickly and never had time to go get it charged. I could still start the car just without the convenience of the keys being anywhere in the car. I had to hold the key up to the button and push it. But a small price to pay for such a great car. There's so many more positive things I could say about this vehicle but mum tired of typing lol
When I first realized I wanted an suv just because they were a little bigger then my car and would be practical I researched over 30 different suvs buy different factors such as by fuel economy, safety rating, size, style, value, purchase price, etc. The mazda cx-5 came out to be the number one choice on my list. I don't normally fill out surveys but this vehicle is excellent. Overall very happy with my cx-5.
I purchased this vehicle as a certified used vehicle from a dealer @39K miles. The engine had a whine while driving that was always present and not dependent on conditions. The salesman claimed not to be able to hear it. During the test drive. I purchased the vehicle and drove it a little less than 2K miles. I recently received a recall notice about another component and when I brought it back I asked them to road test it to check on the whine. After having the car for a day the service manager called and said the whine was due to a faulty transmission and they have to replace it. With the certified warranty the work is covered so I am not out of pocket, but it doesn't exactly instill confidence in the quality of this vehicle.
