Review

We bought our 2015 CX 5 in August . We traded in our 2014 CX 5 cause I wanted a grand touring model. We love the car and it is a hoot to drive. Mileage is spot on and the Pandora woks great. don"t really use the nav system. Can't say enough good things about it. A little trip to the E Bay store for some crome items for the outside and it is a head turner. I named it our Mazda-Rotti. Looks like a mini Lexus

Very happy with my new SUV

Review

I just traded in a 2014 Accord sedan (which had multiple problems) for the CX-5, so let me start by saying I only had this car for five days. But I love it so far. The seats are so supportive and comfortable (apart from the head restraint which are fine for taller people) The Bose system sounds fine to me--not great-- but good enough. The interior noise level (I checked with a decibel meter) is lower than some higher price models. It is relatively smooth on bumpy roads and a pleasure to drive. The electronic multifunction interface is not great. it is a bit slow and sometimes requires multiple entries. Also, the screen could be a tad bigger.

There are better options

Review

Two test drives, many reviews, bought a 2015 Grand Touring for price, have buyer’s remorse. Positive features not unique in the SUV field. Navigation system delivered in December 2014 not current. Free update took 8 hours to download/install including at least 8 trips back and forth between the car and my computer. The HomeLink system yet to function. Larger buyers be aware that the seats may be too narrow/uncomfortable. Mileage so far on mostly level highway speeds of 65 mph or less, is is 26, not the 30+ claimed. Steering so responsive that you may drift out of lane if you glance at the displays. The 19” wheels provide a bumpy ride. Recommend you consider Honda, Nissan, or Subaru.

So Far, Exceeds Expectations

Review

I traded in my sweet little 2010 Mazda 3 for this guy, and I'm in love. I would have kept the 3 (I was this close to paying it off), but I needed more room for the family. Namely my 6'4" husband. The CX-5 is beyond roomy, and it's really comfortable. But driving it, I don't feel like I lost much of the quick response and easy handling that I had with my 3. The only thing I'm not sure about is the audio/phone computer thing. It's clunky and ugly and cheap and feels like an afterthought. An unwise afterthought. BUT...it's been working for me when it eventually gets all connected and set up with my phone. No problems so far streaming Pandora, or playing the music from my iPhone or calling out.

WORTH STATING AGAIN DO NOT BUY TECH PKG!!

Review

I did do some research and was aware the Infotainment system was a tad glitchy before I bought my car but it's way beyond that. It is exactly as someone else said...ipod use has stopped completely even WITH the 3 minute time to start a song and the starting over each time you turn on the car. Bluetooth is beyond frustrating...it seems to think I'm speaking a foreign language. And I've had to reset the bluetooth twice. I've had the car one month. I drive a lot and need my music. I'm so disappointed Mazda has let this go on.

Review

I got my CX-5 in July and currently have about 9,500km on it. Driving it has been nothing but fun. Great response, torque and stability in all conditions. I test drove the CR-V, RAV4, Santa Fe and Cherokee before settling on this one, the most balanced package of all. I am absolutely in LOVE with the steering, which adjusts firmness perfectly with speed. The interior build quality is great with soft-touch materials and while some may find it bland, I prefer this over the overly done interiors of RAV4 and Santa Fe and the pointless buttons of the CR-V. No problems so far - definitely room for improvements as noted below.

The Worst Stereo/Electronics I've Ever Encountered

Review

My 2015 CX-5 GT AWD has the poorest excuse for an infotainment system I've ever seen, bar none. The "premium" Bose stereo sounds more like someone glued a transistor radio to the dashboard and the TomTom navigation system is extremely buggy, requiring constant updates and is agonizingly slow. Ipod support is in name only, I've stopped using it. Voice recognition is a joke. The Bluetooth interface stumbles constantly. Various automotive sites (including this one) have referred to the electronics/audio in this vehicle as sub par or mediocre. The reality is living with it day and day out is enough to taint the entire ownership experience.

Happy with my crossover choice!

Review

Before I bought the CX5 I did hours of research into crossover vehicles and I'm very happy to have chosen this one. I've been driving it for about 3 months now and couldn't be happier with it. The sleek exterior of the car is what initially caught my eye. The car is very easy and fun to drive. Even though it's a crossover it handles like a sedan. The gas mileage has been great on my wallet and it picks up speed nicely. I'm about 2500 miles into the car and haven't noticed any problems at all. I previously drove a Honda and I have full faith in Mazda that it will be just as reliable. I'm extremely happy with my choice!

So fun to drive BUT

Review

I've been driving my CX5 Grand Touring for a few months and have put a few thousand miles on it. It is a fun, peppy CUV and great for hauling kids, the huge family dog and loads of stuff around town and beyond. It handles all sorts of terrain well and sits firmly on the road. The suspension is definitely a little firm but it doesn't ride like a truck. The navigation system is quite low tech, and some of the finer details are neglected. One huge issue for my family right now is the discovery that the rear seats don't recline...a deal breaker on a long haul road trip for a kid in a booster seat. The cx5 is not for the seeker of oversized storage compartments to stash stuff.

Fooled by the looks

Review

What a shocker. Our last four new car purchases had been Toyotas. We were lured in by the sporty look of the CX-5, and claims that its reliability was comparable toToyota's. The salesman hyped the CX -5's maintenance free transmission. About a week after our purchase, the transmission failed completely and required replacement. No support, no apologies, from the dealer. We won't be fooled again. Back to Toyota
