Mazda Never Again. Never Ever.
By bluzone2 on


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


Now about 45,000 miles. The car is garaged. Top overall mpg is only 25.3, in spite of all thruway and interstate driving. Now on its Third set of rotors all around. That averages about 16,000 miles per rotor complete replacement. Accidentally backed up along my spruce tree and the Needles scratched the paint.
The carpet is shot in spite of using heavy duty aftermarket mats.
Wanna buy one?

Cross shopped all the high-efficiency small AWDs. Mazda was a little more expensive but "appeared" to have more amenities. Appearances are deceiving. I bought a fully loaded GT CX-5 with everything but a NAV, based on reviews of the NAV. After 6500 miles that pretty sky blue paint has more white zits than a teenager, the leather is like paper, the "Bose" speakers sound like a discount house box speaker, and I can't get the fuel efficiency higher than 26.0 on interstate driving. Mazda, by way of your dealer, will not stand behind its product.
