Great Car but climate Control does not work correctly
By newowner10 on
2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
My only real complaint is the Automatic Climate Control is not automatic. If the outdoor temperature is 85 Degrees and the temperature is set to 62F on the automatic temperature control the blower will run at 50% and slow down in 5 minutes to 25%. After 30 minutes of driving the temperature in the car is 78 degrees.
The dealer said this is normal. I sent an E-Mail to customer care, a week later they repeated what the dealer said and would not take any further action on behalf. This causes me to have to manually maintain the temperature by varying the fan speed and switching the air intake. I can only assume all of the CX-5's (Possibly all Mazda's)will operate the same way. Be AWARE of this.
The Transmission shifts perfectly, Nice Interior, Great gas Mileage (29.5 around town).
Key-less ignition is something I did not think would be useful I was wrong. Nice Bose Radio, could use a real "Sub-Woofer" for better sound.
