Had mine for 6000 miles, MAZDA! Never again. CX5 is underpowered; the transmission makes it worse. Slow and gear confused at 20-40 MPH, especially in the hills.
Must manually shift this slug or nail gas in hills or entering hyway.
pass; it dies for a whole second before accelerating. 25 MPG at best.
Seat adjuster is awful, nav is cumbersome, the road noise makes it hard to talk at 50 MPH and above, insulation is not there, crank the air and leave it, or drive an oven. Second highest model has no tail lift gate light; WHAT! Shifter easy to knock out of gear/ over to manual. rear wiper grinds. cannot see out the right side well. can't see the gages. no lights on window controls.
steering and suspension handles well, great body lines, autowipers, dealership personnel are top notch. Split seats in the back, but not to sit on.
Moon roof works nicely.
blind spots indicators, back up camera , unless its bright light, or raining.
the transmission is a mess.
The insullation is nonexistant leaving the cab noisey and hard to cool and heat. The vents are limited and the center ones cannot be turned off independently.
fix that rear wiper noise.
lock the shifter better in drive, I keep knocking it out of gear.
the power driver's seat adjuster is inadequate.
Navigator is flat bad to deal with. slow and cumbersome. mine keeps repeating the request to track my movements, and keeps repeating "Voice Control Dectivated'
