Review

I was surprised to hear a grinding noise from near at about 2 years and a few months after ownership. I'm not an aggressive driver who is constantly accelerating and braking, i maintain constant speeds with very minimum soft braking. my fears were confirmed when the dealer confirmed that my rear brake pads and rotor has to be replaced at ~ 34K miles and these things are not covered under warranty. just do a simple internet search on mazda cx 5 and brake problem you will receive many many hits. complained to mazda usa and nhtsa. my nissan rear brakes lasted for about 5 plus years approx 65K miles before they were replaced. this suggests something wrong with mazda cx 5. another issue im facing with this car is squeaky seats , they started after the first year.. it is very annoying.. all seats squeak, so suggests some bad quality material and design... another issue is some constant rattling noise from rear side... dealer is not willing to look into this in much detail. he wants me to leave the car at shop for few days before he can get to it... just living on with this annoying noise...

Review

What a mistake I made buying this POS. The overdrive sticks so although you're hitting the brakes, the engine is revving higher making it harder to control. According to the dealer, this is an engineering problem that all SkyActiv vehicles have. The so-called "high definition" BOSE stereo fades in and out and radio stations with strong signals come in with static (even in high definition). The Bluetooth is useless as it's only compatible with certain phones and the iPhone isn't one of them. All in all, an incredibly bad decision on my part and even worse was the dealer I went to - Palisades Mazda in West Nyack, NY. They are a part of the Precision Auto Group and they are the definition lowlife car salesmen. Once they have your money, they don't want to know from you and if you give honest answers to their feedback request, they will confront you about any responses that were not glowing. When I raised these issues with them, they told me to contact Mazda directly - in essence, they told me to [non-permissible content removed]. Never EVER again.

Review

Great engine, transmission and suspension. Not impressed with body robustness. Great cargo space, however very poor cabin storage. Noisy on highway speeds (60-70 mph). Looks like some flaws are part of the 2016 upgrade.
