2013 Mazda CX-5 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


This car makes weird noises. The motor sounds like birds chirping and it makes me nervous. Is it supposed to sound like this? Sure wish I had a rear camera. The visibility is bad over the shoulder. Interior noise is fair. Car is bulky for it's actual size. Handling is pretty amazing. Really holds the road. Very fun drive. However very little power, but probably enough for normal driving. Not a race car, but kinda handles like one. Boasts some good gas mileage, but haven't experienced that yet. I hope it's just because it needs to be "broken in".

Best Features

Handling is great.

Worst Features

The motor, and I think they improved that in the 2014 models. Lean up the body design.

No, it doesn't break in. I got 25 mpg on interstates from day 1.
