2014 Mazda CX-5 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Good value. Excellent gas mileage 29 to 35 mpg mixed driving. Acceleration Ok but nothing special. Major rattles and vibrations in cold weather and on dirt roads. Driving side mirror replaced due to vibration at highway speeds. Three trips to dealership(s) to finally resolve instrument panel rattle. Still noticeable body noise and resonance from rear. Thinking of trading in for a Subaru Crosstrek as have driven that car over similar terrain with no problems.
Handling on twisting roads.
Bodywork material has been thinned down too much to get good gas mileage. Add sound proofing everywhere.
